There's one simple answer to this question - yes.
Waking up with a pounding headache and the inability to move from our beds, telling ourselves that's the last time- we could all do without it!
What we should really be asking is WHAT could you do without that hangover?
- Tricky decision
Struggling to choose between Korma or Tikka Masala? Having a hangover makes it difficult to make even the simplest of decisions.
- In the mood for food?
Probably. But that doesn't mean what you eat will satisfy you. It just won't taste the same.
Take a night off the sauce and enjoy a meal out with mates.
- Mr/Mrs Unsociable
Stringing a sentence together and actually having to deal with the outside world can be tough when you're sleep deprived from a night out.
- Jump around!
Staying off the booze means not feeling queasy at the thought of movement, giving you energy to do anything! Gym anyone?
- Stuffy and puffy
Date night? Probably not the best idea to organise it after a night out. The after effects of drinking alcohol include dehydration, which can give a serious case of face puffiness...
- Keep calm and relax
After a night out, your brain is in high-excitability stage which isn't ideal for trying to sleep off that hangover!
- Need a little cry?
Using up all those endorphins on the dance floor last night means small things become a big deal and you feel emotionally spent.
- Dragged out on a 'school night'?
Even typing is unimaginable due to a lack of concentration. Imagine the work you could do without that hangover!
Hangovers are thought to be mini withdrawal syndromes so when alcohol leaves your system your brain does the opposite. Therefore if you feel happy, energised and decisive when drunk, what do you think's going to happen on a hangover?
