Following a weekend of fun, Monday mornings can feel like a total drag. You feel tired and drained, and unmotivated to get up. But part of the reason you might not be feeling like yourself is because you dealt with your hangover incorrectly on Sunday.
Because it’s really easy to reach for greasy foods following a night of drinking, but that will only provide your body with a short-term fix, and it can leave you feeling sluggish the next morning.
So if you indulged in too many cocktails over the weekend, step away from the pizza — and try one of these natural hangover remedies.
Enjoying some eggs when you’re hung over doesn’t sound that appealing, but eggs are easily digested, gentle on your stomach, and packed with protein. Plus, thanks to their large amounts of cysteine, eating eggs can actually absorb alcohol’s leftover toxins.
When it comes to hangovers, coconut water is a must have remedy, and for good reason. It's insanely hydrating, and one carton contains more potassium than a banana—which is the key nutrient for feeling better fast.
Green tea is packed with antioxidants, which keep your body’s cells—and therefore organs—healthy. This means a healthier liver, which will help you recover faster. If you’re feeling nauseous, add rosemary or lavender to your tea—they’ll calm your stomach fast. So following a night of drinking, make a cup of loose-leaf For Tea’s Sake Let’s Go Green Jasmine Tea.
