Skip the workout the day after

Working out when you're hungover may sound like a good idea, but it may be the worst thing you can do, particularly if you had a lot to drink the night before and you haven't started rehydrating yet.

  • Dehydration. Alcohol is a diuretic, which means it causes the body to lose more water than it takes on. It's often this occurrence that causes many of the symptoms of a hangover like dry mouth, headaches, and nausea. Exercising and sweating can actually cause you to dehydrate even more. If you can hydrate enough to feel better, you may be able to workout later in the day, but don't use exercise as a cure. If you're not hydrated, it may only make you feel worse.
  • If you feel a desperate need to working out the day after a trough night out, stick to yoga or a slow walking and get back to your usual routines once you body is properly hydrated.
