If there’s one thing everyone can agree on, it’s this: Hangovers are the actual worst. Everyone has an opinion on whether or not he or she likes to go out, loosen up, and enjoy a couple of rounds, but if there’s one thing that we’re certain about, it’s that no one likes a hangover.
If you’re planning on a night out with your friends, you might want to consider some of these hangover remedies for the next day.
Drinking Pickle Juice
We know it sounds disgusting, but hear us out: Alcohol is a diuretic, which makes you feel dehydrated. Drinking pickle juice will help you replenish your sodium levels and hydrate you more quickly than almost any other beverage (except water, of course). Skip the Gatorade in your fridge and reach for the pickle jar instead.
Eating a Hearty Breakfast
Just as it’s deadly to drink on an empty stomach, when you’re hungover, it’s the same deal. Choosing to refrain from eating when you’re feeling hungover won’t help your cause. Though, sometimes, food sounds like the least appealing thing in the world, a hearty breakfast (or any meal that’s high in carbs) will always do you good.
Advil and Ibuprofen are some quick fixes, but like alcohol, they may worsen the damage done to your liver from the night before. Next time you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, try opting out for a healthier antidote, like yoga. Many yoga positions have the ability to aid in digestion and settle your stomach.
