What can you do to help ease that morning-after hangover?
Woody Harrelson says, "If you have a hangover, a headstand is the best thing to do. Get up and do a yoga session."
Well, we can't all do a headstand, so If you're feeling less than stellar today after too much alcohol last night, here are four natural hangover helpers that might work for you:
1. Coconut water. Coconut water is loaded with potassium - it actually contains 15 times more potassium than a sports drink or twice as much as a banana, so it makes for a great hangover fixer.
2. Do some yoga! Yoga has tons of health benefits, and now you can add hangover helper to the list. Twists in particular can relieve head and stomach aches by promoting detoxification deep within your body. And as we mentioned, Woody Harrelson is a fan of headstands for hangovers :)
3. Water. Lots of water. Hydrate away to rid yourself of those New Year's Eve toxins. Do so before, during, and after drinking.
4. Asparagus.Yes, asparagus. If you plan on going out drinking (we're probably too late) a new study says that "eating asparagus is a good strategy to prevent a hangover, quickly breaking down alcohol in your system and lessening the chances of a miserable morning after."
