Everyone’s spirits are high in the summer and sometimes it’s easy to indulge in too many spirits! Summer BBQs and pool parties often involve ice-cold alcoholic beverages. Also, many weddings take place in the summer and it can be difficult not to have fun drinking and dancing the night away. I’ve never been one to drink too much, and for the past 10 months haven’t been drinking at all! I can relate, though, to feeling out of sorts the next day after having an extra glass of wine or two when there’s something special to celebrate.
If you overindulge in one too many cocktails and wake up feeling not so great the next day, you can combat your hangover with some simple yoga moves. Resist the urge to indulge in a heavy meal and pop a Tylenol. The best thing you can do, is eat a breakfast high in fiber (oatmeal or sprouted wheat toast) and good quality protein (hard boiled egg instead of greasy bacon), drink a hydrating coconut water along with your coffee or tea, and move the body to sweat out the alcohol.
