How To Bounce Back After A Night Out

Oh, we’ve all been there…Woken up after a night of drinking or eating out and just feeling like the crap and/or extremely bloated. The worst.

So, what do we do from there? How do we become #health again?

My Shelby and I living it up!

To me, enjoying a night out with friends or a significant other is worth it, despite the bloat or headache the next day. Balance means not feeling bad about treating yourself once in a while!

Too many times have I turned down hanging out with friends because they were going out to a “non-healthy” restaurant. I’m over that mentality!

Here are some of my go-to tips for bouncing back after a night out:

Hydrate Before Hitting The Town

Hydrate before you load up on salt or alcohol. Just trust me.

Hydrate ALOT The Next Day

Your body is gonna be so full of salt (maybe alcohol) that it’s craving water! You might want to go straight for the coffee, but trust me you need to hydrate first. I try and keep a bottle with me the whole day.

Sweat It Out

If you can, try and get a workout in to rid your body of toxins. Sweating is so good for you, especially after a night out! I also love to sauna to really get the detox going. Plus, if you feel sick/lethargic you can still sweat by sitting in the sauna.

Nourish Your Body

After a night of eating out you might feel like the last thing you want to do the next day is to eat more. BUT, I’m not suggesting to carb load or anything, just don’t forget your body needs nourishment. Have a refreshing smoothie, some coconut water (great for hydration), or a big salad! Something light but full of nutrients. This will help you get back on the right track and not down an unhealthy spiral.

Give Yourself Grace

It’s so easy to get down on yourself after a fun night of eating and drinking with friends. TRUST ME, I’ve been there. Forgive yourself, having fun with your friends is not a crime. Know that today is a new day and you can get back on your health grind!

 

My biggest tip is to remember you are what you do most of the time. If you eat healthy 6/7 days a week and want to have some french fries with your boyfriend on Saturday, you’re still a healthy person!
