Hey everyone! I hope you all had a safe and fun St Patty’s Day yesterday. Are any of you feeling like this guy today? 🙂
If you do. ..I’ve been there. To cure my hangovers, I used to follow a ritual of coffee and a plate of greasy eggs (If I could eat). To my dismay, my ritual never worked, but I kept with it.
As I got older and gained experience as a nurse, I learned my remedies were just myths. In the ICU, we treated people who drank too much alcohol with IV fluids and time to recover. Coffee and greasy foods were definitely not ordered by the doctor.
Because it’s St Patrick’s weekend, and I know alot of you want to continue with the festivities, I wanted to share with you the BEST ways to avoid a hangover in my latest Health Tips in Minutes video: Grace the Nurse’s Health Tips in Minutes: Preventing Hangovers!
Remember, if you are tipsy or drunk, please do not drive. Either call a taxi, Uber, Lyft or friend or family member to drive you home. Having a designated driver is always an excellent idea.
If none of these is an option, many states now offer programs where you can call for a ride home and sometimes for free! Here’s a list of those programs.
Have a safe St Patty’s Day weekend and stay healthy!
