#1 Hydration

Dancing, sweating and eating salty foods in the heat all day and on top of that the alcoholic drinks. Your body is surely dehydrated, to avoid this, do drink water during the day and before you go to sleep. This is an effective way to avoid the hangover feeling the next day. Many people forget drinking water before hitting the sheets, so drink that holy water as soon as you wake up. Try to avoid popping painkillers, this can have serious damage to your liver when mixing it with alcohol. Another tip is to avoid coffee the next day, it doesn’t only dehydrate you but it is toxin, as it will overwork your liver since it is already busy getting rid of those alcoholic toxins too. The best way to boost your energy level is to drink fruit juice. So grab a smoothie at the festival, it will definitely supply your vitamins and minerals for proper physical recovery.

#2 Foods

What you eat the day after being intoxicated by alcohol does not really matter, but the food you eat before all those beers and cocktails can help ease your hangover the next morning. Eat fatty food like a greasy burger, pizza or pasta. This way you slow down the absorption of the alcohol flowing into the bloodstream. Check out the veggie food trucks at the festival, the healthy cuisine will offer you the veggies your body needs. Remember that you’re drinking in the heat so eating steady and drinking water will help you not getting drunk too fast.
