Things You'll Need
- Sports Drinks
- Sports drinks
Drink water as soon as you get up in the morning to rehydrate yourself. If possible, have a sports drink. The electrolytes and nutrients in a sports drink can replenish your body's depleted reserves.
Drink even more water if you plan to have coffee. Caffeine is a mild diuretic and can contribute to dehydration.
Stick to liquids that are at room temperature. Drinks that are excessively hot or cold will be even more of a shock to your struggling stomach.
Take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as aspirin or ibuprofen to relieve a pounding headache or body aches.
Eat easily digestible foods when you're ready. Fresh fruit, toast and water-based soups are all easy on the stomach. Harder-to-digest foods such as eggs and milk can cause stomach problems.
Relax, rest or go back to bed. Allow some time for your body to feel positive effects from your treatments.
