How To Detox After A Heavy Weekend

Post by Taislany Gomes • December 03, 2018 • Beauty, Fitness, Lifestyle

You enjoyed cocktail happy hour on Friday a bit too much (and extended the happiness way into the night), you partied all day and night Saturday, had brunch early on Sunday and then went to the cinema later on in the evening (and ate copious amounts of popcorn) — all in all, what with all the drinking and eating, it wasn’t the healthiest few days, was it? Now, it’s Monday morning, and you still feel rough after that heavy weekend you’ve just had.

As you stare into your cup of coffee, you feel like you want to use this forthcoming week as a detox period. To do this, you’re going to have to put the advice found below into practice.

Set up and stick to a meal/drinking plan

The best way to flush your body of all the pollutants that you put into it on the weekend, you have to be studious when it comes to the setting and sticking to of a meal/drinking plan.

First and foremost, you should seek to consume 64 to 100 ounces of water each day. Herbal teas, such as chamomile and mint, will help you out, too, thanks to the way they will relax your stomach. You should also aim to stick to a three-meal-a-day plan — in this instance; you should pick foods that are dense in nutrients and high in vitamins.

A good day-to-day meal/drinking plan can be found here.

Avoid caffeine

Do not get this confused with ‘cutting caffeine out altogether’ — if you were to do that, you’d make your post-weekend detox much harder for yourself because you’d also have to deal with caffeine withdrawal. To benefit your health at this time, however, you should seek to avoid caffeine as best as you can. A weak cup or two of coffee a day is okay, but if it’s too strong, it will just dehydrate your body. After a few days of heavy drinking, dehydration is the last thing your body wants or needs!

Get a good amount of sleep

Sleep is essential if you want to recover fully from your weekend antics. This not only means resting throughout the whole of the day that follows your heavy drinking sessions but also continuing to get a good amount of sleep as the week progresses. To do this, you should set yourself the task of going to bed and waking up at the same time each and every day.

Pack your body with electrolytes

Electrolytes are a key component when it comes to feeling your absolute best, so make sure to factor them into your detoxing process. To pack your body with electrolytes, you have a few options: you could order a hangover treatment package from (this will help to tackle nausea you might still be feeling after a session of heavy drinking), or you could simply drink a number of different sports drinks.

In order to avoid a sluggish week at work, you have to leave your heavy weekend well and truly behind you. To do this, you have to take the detoxing advice found above.
