Hangover? These Four Exercises Can Flush The Alcohol Out Of Your System

Four Exercises

When it’s the weekend, you can relax and enjoy spending time with family and friends. However, enjoying sometimes comes with drinking more alcohol than you can tolerate! It’s even worse when a glass or two of wine leave you with nasty hangover. The pounding head and queasiness the morning after is a sure way to spoil your day!

Luckily, exercise can help you get past this sickness. And, it has nothing to do with sweating. 

In fact, when you get hot and sweaty while recovering from a hangover, you’ll be doing your body more harm than good. This is because alcohol dehydrates you and vigorous exercise will dehydrate you eve further. 

According to experts, the best way to get rid of a hangover is by stretching. Stretching like ashtanga yoga is a great way to detoxify the body and flush it through with precious blood and oxygen.

So, here are four exercises that will keep your blood flowing and surely flush the alcohol out of your system:

1. Chin to chest

Lie on the floor with your arms at your sides and your legs straight. Then, with your arms around your shin, bring your right knee to your chest and hug it as close as possible. Hold the pose for ten seconds while breathing in and out slowly and deeply. Lastly, lower your leg back to the ground and repeat on the other side.

2. Seated forward bend

While sitting on the floor with your legs extended in front of you, bend at the hips extendig your arms forward to reach for your feet. Then, with each breath you exhale, try to push yourself just a little further towards your feet. try to hold for five to ten seconds at each interval before you relax.

3. Hamstring stretch

Bring your right foot to your hands while lying on your back. Then, while holding your foot, pull it towards your head and extend your leg as much as possible. In this position, you will feel the stretch in the back on your leg. Hold the pose for ten seconds and breathe in and out before gently releasing your foot. Switch sides and repeat the stretch.

4. Seated twist

While sitting on the floor with your legs crossed in front of you, cross the one leg further over the other so your foot rests on the outer side of your thigh. Then, raise your knee up to touch your chest and hold onto it with the opposite hand. Rotate your upper body with your free hand while keeping your spine straight. Try to reach your free hand behind you and twist and hold for five seconds. Repeat on the other side.

There you have it! Free yourself of terrible mornings with these four stretches.
