Party Season Survival Guide
Are you embracing the party season? But getting fed up of that awful, tired feeling the next day? Here are some top tips on how to survive your hangover and be party ready.
During the party season, there are girls dancing in high stilettos and men trying to break in their new Christmas shoes; which can cause feet a great discomfort the next day of course. Some top tips to have happy feet are to buy shoes 1cm longer than your foot but that fit nice and snug around the widest part of your sole. Friction caused by tight fitting shoes can lead to blisters which can be quite painful and annoying. Well-nourished skin is less prone to blisters so before heading out pop on a good moisturiser ready for the night ahead. Also, good for your feet are gel cushions, which you can stick in the bottom of your shoe to help prevent a pain in the ball of your foot. Use these top tips to be able to dance the night away in comfort.

The next day make sure you keep hydrated and drink lots of water in order to avoid getting headaches or migraines, as your body is dehydrated from all the toxins in the body the night before. As well as that make sure you eat a big meal before you head out, and the next day to soak up all the alcohol in your system. Some greasiness is good, but protein over carbs are even better. Taking a vitamin C and a B supplement about an hour before you start drinking as this can help improve your tolerance to alcohol for the rest of the night and the next day. While your head may be throbbing, it’s really about calming your stomach as it is moving in the wrong direction.

Try to avoid mixing drinks on your night out as different types of alcohol have different level of chemicals, they’ll all have a slightly different effect on you. Mixing drinks, as you have probably worked out through trial and error, leads to you getting drunk quicker and a bigger headache the next day. Also, as much as it may sound boring, having a few glasses of water throughout the night will make sure you stay hydrated, preventing that awful headache you wake up with the next day.
We all know that pacing yourself and drinking some soft drinks is a smart idea, but still be careful what you choose. Drinking fizzy drinks will actually speed up the rate at which alcohol is absorbed into your system and so it actually defeats the point. This also applies if you are mixing your alcoholic drink with a fizzy one, so another top tip is to mix you spirit with an orange juice rather than a coke for example.

And lastly the old-fashioned remedy that works a charm, take a couple of pain killers and sleep it off the hangover. The pain killer will ease any aches and discomfort you have, allowing you to go back to sleep after eating. This gives the alcohol time to wear off and your body tissues time to recover. Also, the fact that you have been up all night past your normal bedtime; your body has missed out on crucial sleep that it needs to catch up on.
