The end of the year usually means one thing. Ending it in style. Here are a few tips and tricks that will make sure you actually make it to 2018 too. Start the year with your head upright.

 

5. SWEAT IT OUT

This one isn’t the most convenient but for those who can manage it, get up and work out! Sweat those toxins out of your body. You may end up vomiting or feeling like crap along the way but you’ll be grateful that evening or the next day not only because you’re no longer feeling the effects of the alcohol but you also get to be proud of yourself for being productive and working out.

4. EAT

I cannot stress this enough! Eat during the day before a night of drinking and try and have a good breakfast the morning after as well. The food will help soak up the alcohol and it’ll keep you feeling miles better. There’s a reason the phrase is “Eat, drink and be merry” in that order.

 

3. PACE YOURSELF

Having a heap of different drinks may have you feeling fantastic in the moment but about an hour later your stomach may start having a very public disagreement with you. Ease yourself into it! Actually enjoy the drink, take a minute and take it in. Take your time with one type of drink before moving on to another. If all else fails try to remember the age old saying “Beer before liquor, never sicker. Liquor before beer, you’re in the clear”.

 

2. WATER

Throughout the night do not forget to keep yourself hydrated with some good old fashioned h2o. Excess alcohol can cause dehydration and then on top of that if you’re losing more fluid than you’re consuming, you’re also dehydrated. In other words, if your night includes sweating, crying or vomiting then you are losing fluid. Drink it in shots if that makes it more interesting. For every shot of tequila, pair it with a shot of water. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.

 

1. GET AHEAD OF THE GAME

After a night of drinking by the time you get home you’re exhausted and ready for a good long sleep. The best thing to do before taking that slumber is to take some paracetamol, (please don’t do this if there hasn’t been a sufficient amount of time since your last drink) you’re less likely to feel as bad if your head hurts a little less.

These 5 may work for some and may not work for others but it never hurts to try. Remember drink responsibly and have a wonderful start to the New Year.
