There once was a day when there was no need to seek recovery after a big night of partying, when your body bounced back as if the party didn’t even happen. For many people, those days of youthfulness are sorely missed, even if they aren’t far gone.
Unfortunately, after a big party, the hangover won’t be your only bodily concern, but also the sleep deprivation that accompanies a late night of partying.
Luckily for you, there are simple tricks to lead your body to a speedy recovery.
1. Get Sufficient Beauty Sleep
This may be obvious for some people, but other people might try to continue on with life as if the party didn’t even happen. It’s important to not short cut your body on those few extra hours of shut eye since it will help to replenish and rejuvenate your body’s energy supply, as well as ease the symptoms of a hangover. Of course, to make this happen it is important to have a bed that’s comfortable. If you aren’t sure what is the best mattress, make use of the internet. You’d be amazed with the recommendations that bloggers and sleep experts make.
2. Get the Right Amount of Sleep
On one hand, it’s important to restore your body and get the amount of sleep it needs. On the other hand, you’ll only be doing yourself a disservice by overdoing it, and getting too much sleep.
If it’s afternoon when you’re finally getting out of bed, after getting more than enough sleep, you may feel groggy instead of rested, and like you should be crawling back into bed. This is like going back to square one. Oversleeping may make you feel like you haven’t slept at all.
Sleeping the day away after a big party may make it hard to get back to sleep at a reasonable time the following night, making it difficult to get your body back into a normal routine.
Instead of further indulging in impulses, try allowing yourself to only stay in bed until 10 or 11 a.m.
3. Essential Oils
Lavender oil is known to promote relaxation to allow your body to rest. Before going to sleep, try to remember to apply lavender oil to your temples, pillow, or somewhere near your head as you sleep. This can help your body to relax into the deep and restful sleep it is going to greatly need.
4. Rehydrate Before Bed Time
By replenishing your body’s water supply, your body won’t be as dehydrated, preventing the alcohol in your system from reeking even more havoc than it already has. This is also beneficial for once you wake up. If your unfortunate enough to suffer from vomiting and nausea after a long night of partying, drinking plenty of water throughout the night and before bed may help to lessen the effects of alcohol on your stomach.
5. Consider Fruit Before Bed
While it may be far from your mind, consider eating a piece of fruit before bed like watermelon, grapes, or apples, which are all high in a sugar known as fructose. This sugar aids your liver in detoxing the alcohol in your body. You will thank yourself later for that precaution since this will help to either avoid a hangover all together or lessen the effects of a hangover.
