How to avoid the event hangover

By Heather Holm, SoundGirls.org 28. December 2019

 

Have you been there? Done an event that starts at 6 am but doesn’t end until 3 or 4 am. Afterward, you go home, get some sleep, but you still have to get up at a reasonable time to function that day? Then you wake up feeling like you spent the night drinking way too much?

I call this the event hangover. It’s close to the same feeling as a hangover, but you missed the entire section of the night that was enjoying a few drinks and hanging out with friends.  There’s the headache, body aches, your feet hurt, and you don’t exactly remember what time you got home.
