For those who have a hangover at work….(the 2 people that I know read
this probably never have a hangover at work, but just in case….):
Here’s what I do, actually I did it today becaues I was severely hungover from having fun last night!
~Even though you won’t want to get up..DO IT! If you don’t, you will just end up laying in bed worrying about work and feeling crappy all day.
~Immediately down atleast 1 glass of water and (only) 2 excedrin (or whatever you take) extra strength.
~Take a shower. You won’t want to, but trust me, it helps a lot. Cold showers are better than hot, but whatever strikes your fancy. If you fail to shower, you will reek like you were out drinking all night and even though you were, you DO NOT want your boss and co-workers to know.
~Brush you teeth, but if you’re feeling nauseaus (sp?) abstain from brushing your tongue (that is, if you normally brush it). Your gag reflex is not ready for that so early in the day after such a night!
~Take the time to get ready for work like you do every other day. If you do not take this time, it will be noticed and your cover will be blown.
~If you do not feel ANY better or perky by now, when you get to work (as long as all the steps have been taken), tell everyone you simply do not feel good. This works as a cover in case later in the day you are caught with your head on your desk or you end up puking.
~Drink another glass/bottle of water when you arrive at work.
~After said glass/bottle, drink whatever you choose (coffee, pop, etc…)
~At lunch, if you tan or aren’t against tanning, go. This always helps me feel better. I feel as though I sweat out some more alcohol & you can nap while getting nice & bronzed!!! (Make sure you bring deodorant, lotion, etc…so you don’t smell sweaty when you get back to work).
~For lunch, eat whatever you can stomach, but make sure it’s some sort of fast food. The greasier the better and by lunchtime you should be able to stomach something. I like a Subway sub and cherry coke or a nice double cheeseburger meal with a diet coke. (I ate the latter today for lunch and I feel great!)
~after you wat lunch and finish whatever your drink was for lunch, drink more water.
~By now you should feel somewhat normal & probably just a bit tired. If you don’t, you probably already gave up and went home sick.
~Finish your work day staying hydrated and always lean on the not feeling good thing.
~After work, go home and chill out. Drink water. Go to bed early. And next time you want to drink or go out on a night when you have to work the next morning, remember today and how crappy you felt. It’ll stop you for atleast a week from doing it again!
Hope this helped!
Stay tuned for maore AmAzInG aDvEnTuReS!!!
