Oh oh, it’s Monday morning, we are back to work, most of us trying to recover from the weekend of having too much fun . . . The first simple step is to recover ourselves to feel better, because let’s face it, at one point or another, we’ve all been there. What we need is to get back to our daily routine in a healthy way. These are some simple tips to help make and put your mind and body back in control, and speed up your recovery from indulgence over the past two weeks of holiday too much fun and little relaxation. 🙂
You need to flush out all the toxins that built up in your body over the holiday weekend. Alcohol also has a dehydrating effect on your body, and lack of water consumption takes a toll after a few days. Drink at least 2 litres of water every day, for the next 5 days … And that’s a must! 🙂
The best thing you can do after a tiring weekend is refresh your body with adequate sleep. You need to get your circadian rhythm back to its normal cycle. Do this by aiming for 8-10 hours of beauty sleep for the next 6 nights … And that’s also a must! 🙂
It’s important to replenish your system with vital vitamins and minerals that were lacking in your diet over the weekend. Pop a multivitamin to make you less vulnerable to illnesses, revitalise your brain, and accelerate the detoxification process.
Fruits and Veggies
Alcohol flushes out vitamins and minerals from your system, so it’s important to eat fruits and vegetables to help your body rebound after a long weekend.
A fantastic cure for a hangover. Coconut water is greatly hydrating, and packs as much potassium as a banana, which is an essential nutrient for getting over a hangover. Coconut water is also more flavourful than regular water, making it easier to drink when you’re hungover or feeling tired.
It’s essential to balance out the levels of probiotics in your system. Yogurt improves digestion and metabolism of alcohol.
This is a heavenly hangover cure. Sports drinks like Gatorade help replenish the lost electrolytes in your body so you can re-hydrate your system.
Too much caffeine dehydrates your body, and you definitely don’t want this after a weekend of partying. Even though coffee will help you stay awake when you’re feeling exhausted, its best to stay away from it until you’ve recovered.
Relax, you don’t have to run a marathon, but exercise will help you recover faster by eliminating toxins from your system. Exercise increased blood circulation and oxygen supply to where your body needs it most . . . the brain.
Take a quick stroll
Any form of exercise will help you recover faster by eliminating toxins from your system, but a quick stroll is probably the best bet. There’s nothing more invigorating than a brisk walk along the shore line, or just around the block to grab some fresh breezy air for your mind and healthy soul .
Here’s to a fabulous new 2016 year . . . A fresh new start . . . A fresh new mind and body! 🙂
Bonjour Monday . . . The first order of back to business! 🙂
