As I have learned in my 32 years on earth, December parties are fun! Sometimes they are too much fun, to be quite honest. For me, this has been the case, especially in the past few years when my general alcohol intake is quite small during the year and consequently, I lack the stamina, for a lack of a better word. This means that my December mornings are often plagued with hangover and since nobody likes that, here are a few tips on how to help your body recover.

V svojih 32 letih na svetu sem se naučila, da so decembrske zabave res super! Včasih so celo preveč zabavne, če sem čisto iskrena. Meni osebno se to pogosto zgodi, še posebej zato, ker zadnja leta skozi celo leto ne pijem kaj veliko alkohola in nimam “vzdržljivosti” – boljše besede pač ne najdem. To pomeni, da so decembrska jutra pogosto zaznamovana z mačkom, ki ga nihče ne mara, zato je tu nekaj namigov, kako lahko v takšnih primerih pomagaš svojemu telesu.

There are a couple of things you can do the night before. That kebab at 3 a.m. won’t help you cure a looming hangover, but anything you eat before you have your drinks will – so make sure not to drink on an empty stomach! Also, try to remember the 1-1 (or better yet, 1-2) rule: for each unit of alcohol, you have to have a unit of water, or even better, two units.  While this might up the number of your toilet breaks, you’ll thank me in the morning. I always remember to drink half of liter of water directly before bed as well.

Nekaj stvari lahko storiš že prejšnji večer. Kebab ob treh zjutraj ti ne bo pomagal pozdraviti prihajajočega mačka, vendar pa bo pozitivno delovalo vse, kar boš pojedla pred pitjem – nikakor ne pij na prazen želodec! Poizkusi imeti v mislih pravilo 1-1 (ali še bolje, 1-2): za vsako enoto alkohola, ki jo spiješ, moraš popiti tudi enoto vode, ali še bolje, dve! Čeprav bo to povišalo število tvojih izletov v toaletne prostore, se mi boš zjutraj zahvalila. Sama obvezno spijem pol litra vode tudi tik preden se zvalim v posteljo. View Full Post
