5. Recover fast and get yourself back to normal:
The day after your Christmas party is all about making the quickest recovery possible - the quicker you feel better, the more likely you are to return to good habits like eating well, exercising and getting enough sleep. Although you may feel like a greasy fry-up, evidence shows that eating porridge with honey may be a better option as the complex carbohydrates provide a slow and steady release of sugar into the bloodstream and some studies have shown that honey can relieve hangover symptoms.
Whatever you eat, electrolytes in food help replenish a dehydrated system and get calories back into your body, helping you feel better. Drinking plenty of water, or eating fruit like watermelon, which has high water content, is also a good way of counteracting the dehydration.
Getting out into the fresh air also helps, so as soon as you can lift yourself off the sofa, it’s worth trying to go for a walk around the block to blow away the cobwebs. And although a hangover isn’t caused by lack of sleep, it can make it feel worse, so grabbing a nap if possible, will help heal your body.
