There’s a lot of misinformation when it comes to beating rough mornings after drinking. Before you grab an extra bottle of water, a cup of coffee, or another drink, listen up!
1. Water is the answer? Think again.
Despite being perceived as the best way to skip rough mornings, dehydration isn’t the root of the problem. Drinking water won’t stop chemicals from affecting your brain or toxins from building up in your liver.
2. Coffee fixes everything? Nope.
Drinking caffeinated beverages may help you feel more alert, but it will likely amplify your rough morning, keep you dehydrated, and prolong your misery.
3. Hair of the dog will set you straight? Wrong.
A bloody mary will likely kick your brain back into that euphoric state, temporarily making you feel human again. But don’t be fooled, it’s a vicious cycle and once that drink wears off, you’ll pay the price.
