How to make a DIY Hangover Prevention Kit
No one wants to start the New Year with a hangover. A DIY hangover prevention kit may be small, but don’t underestimate how effective it can be. Packing a few key items into your bag will help you prevent the symptoms of a hangover and get 2019 off to a great start.
- Water: Staying hydrated is the best way to prevent a hangover. Since you’re losing nutrients throughout the night that can worsen the symptoms of a hangover, you may want to consider a sports drink with electrolytes.
- Rehydration solution: Oral rehydration solutions are sold in powdered form, making them an easy-to-pack part of your DIY hangover prevention kit. Just add water and you’ll go a long ways towards preventing a hangover.
- Pain medication: Pack some pain pills in your kit, but not medications that contain acetaminophen (like Tylenol). This family of drugs negatively interacts with alcohol.
- Snacks: Just in case your NYE celebration venue doesn’t have food, some snacks in your bag can help you prevent a hangover. Snacks with protein are ideal. Trail mix, which contains protein and sugar from the nuts and chocolate, is one of our favorite choices!
Mix and match our recommended items based on your personal preferences and needs.
