There are usually one too many of these eat-drink-and-be merry binges when special occasions come around, but it is well known that gorging on rich but low-nutrition food, indulging in alcohol, and staying up late can take a toll on one's well-being and lead to health problems. Here are some tips to keep partygoers safe from the hazards of overindulgence.
Eat before going out so you won't get as drunk and keep you from eating 12 mini-burgers or a lot of fried finger food wonders. Make a point of eating something healthy to give yourself a head start. You're going to a party so be prudent before you lose control and regret it.
Dont stay near the bar or buffet table. Avoid getting yourself in a situation where you're mindlessly eating or drinking. If you're that bored, go hang out with someone you enjoy talking to or simply leave because what's the point of staying?
Drink water after each alcoholic drink. You will get less tipsy, and since you're staying hydrated, you will avoid the headache hangover in the morning.
Dance, dance, dance. Even if you dont love dancing, go get your groove on. Dancing keeps you away from the food, and it's hard to drink when you're busting a move. Plus, you can blow off some steam and burn some calories. The dancer who has the most fun - not who looks the best - wins!
Dont stay too late. Nothing good happens that late. Get in, have some fun and know when it's time to go home. You're not likely to miss anything.
Drink a glass of water before going to bed. Even though you've been drinking water all night, make sure you get some before you hit the sack. A little extra help always helps.
