You can see a person with a hangover and you may have felt one (or more) yourself. Let’s use some exercise at home yoga postures that Beth Shaw of yogafit recommends to help allieviate the hangover: the headache, excess fatigue and all the dehydration effects.
- Child’s pose: Sit on the back of your heels and spread your arms in front, lightly pressing your forehead onto the yoga mat. Take 10 deep breaths in and out of the nose. Gently roll your head back and forth for a massage. Allow your body to relax and fall between your knees.
- Plow to shoulderstand: Going upside-down allows your blood circulation to rush to your head, which helps with headache and fatigue. Lay on your back. Bring your legs up and over, allowing all 10 toes to touch the floor, breath deeply for 5-10 breaths. Then kick up one leg at a time, and breath deeply for 10 breaths without moving the head.
- Knees to chest: Move back to plow from shoulderstand and then to knees to the chest stretch. Rock back and forth, massaging the back and allowing oxygenated blood to circulate through your body.
- Savasana: Lie back with eyes closes and limbs spread gently. Stay there and just relax for 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
Be sure to do these simple exercises at home and be sure to replenish your body with fruit juices and water. Or you can drink a sports drink to help rehydrate the electrolytes and minerals. Eating a banana will also help. Continue to exercise, doing cardio exercise at home or in the gym but be sure to add in at least 2 to 3 glasses of water before, during and after exercise when suffering from a hangover. You need to become re-hydrated and that will help you greatly.
