Beat your hangover like a boss!
Your room spins, your head bangs, your mouths dry, you can barely look at the your iPhone screen without kindly asking Siri to turn down the brightness settings. There’s a half written message in your whatsapp and a thick haziness surrounding last nights happenings? Yes, these are all signs of a hangover and we’ve all felt them at one point in our lives. ‘Why do I do it to myself?’ you may ask, and don’t we all, yet the answer is pretty obvious. You love socialising, socialising usually involves friends and groups of friends socialising always leads to drinking, which in turns results in you being hungover.
F*ck beating it, accept it! Embrace your hangover it’s a sign of your awesomeness (probably a sign of a few drunken tweets and an embarrassing photo uploaded by a friend to your Facebook page).
1. THROW YOUR PHONE AT THE WALL
zzz….zZZ…BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP … The dreaded sound of your alarm the morning after what seemed to be the biggest night of your life…or at least the most you have ever drank in your life. All you need to do at this point is throw your phone at the wall. This will be the one time that throwing your phone at a wall will seem logical and there will be more reason than that you were angry.
You were drunk and forgot to turn the alarm off the night before because… You were drunk! Wahey! SATISFACTION.
2. YOU ARE A TREND SETTER
You’re hungry, you need a drink, but what comes hand in hand with being a student? You never have anything in the fridge at the times you need it most. Go to the shop in your pyjamas. Hell! You’re DRUNK?! That’s always a good excuse isn’t it…?
3. ACTIVATE B*TCH MODE
Uh oh.. The kitchens a mess and it’s your fault for having pre-drinks. Wait – a – minute, didn’t you clean up before pre drinks? and the time before that… and the time before that. This is a good time to throw a strop at your flatmates for never washing up. Of course, you are still wasted and you’re probably going to be bed bound for a while.
4. GET A PIERCING
Whilst lying in bed all day seems appealing, it’s not always the way forward when you’re so hung-over that you’re uncomfortable. Well, why not take your mind off it and get a piercing? You’ve wanted one for ages but never had the guts to do it … now is your perfect chance. Plus, it’ll take away the reminder that your whole body is in shock from the night before.
5. JUMP ON YOUR LONER FLAT MATES BED
‘Owww, I just want my own bed’ . Yeah, don’t we all Mister? Stop feeling sorry for yourself and do something good. Jumping on the bed of the flatmate that never socialises seems like a perfectly good idea in this scenario.
Wake them and yourself up, this way you’ll both start to learn that life just isn’t as bad as it feels when you’re on your own … particularly with a hangover.
6. YOU REMEMBER THE ONE FREIND THAT TALKS A LOT OF SH*T? RING THEM
You’re lying in bed, you’re still intoxicated and you STILL want to chew somebody’s ear off. Who says a hangover means you can’t talk? For sure, you might be less active for a day but you can still talk! Ring the person who loves a good natter…the one who’s calls you might usually ignore. Besides, you need to discuss the events of last night or at least the parts you remember.
7. YOU CAN STILL DRUNK TEXT
Why not make the most of your hangover? Send the whatsapp t you were halfway through writing before your battery died to your ex. You have so much to say and it seems to make even more sense when under the influence … only this time you’re on your way back to being sober, you’re decision is obviously being influenced by best of both worlds – SEND, SEND, SEND. A drunk mind speaks a sober heart.
8. F YOUR DIET
A day spent being hungover is universal accepted as a cheat day! Fast food is just TASTY, a guilty pleasure but it’s definitely okay when you’re down in the dumps. If you’re able to get out of bed perhaps a cheeky trip to Nandos. This is the one time you can feel good about eating fast food, for once it’s actually helping your body. JUST DO IT!
9. UNLEASH YOUR INNER CHILD
Go to a park and slide down the slide. Every time you see a park, namely the one you walk past on most days to Uni, you get an overwhelming urge to just zoom up those steps and go free as a bird down the slide. Why not use your hangover as an excuse? You’re drunk for goodness sake, anything goes.
10. START DRINKING AGAIN
The ultimate hangover cure, yes I admit if done regular you may have a problem but provided your not doing this several times a week why not start drinking again? Be that person. Don’t waste your day claiming you’ll never drink again, we all know you will once the hangover wears off…
