Summer cocktails are divine. Summer hangovers…not so much. Take a pass on hair-of-the-dog and ease the pain with these healthy cures:
Make an antioxidant smoothie
Break out the blender and toss in fresh bananas, blueberries, kale, and lemon. Blend. Drink up and let those natural antioxidants, vitamins, enzymes, and potassium do their healing thing.
Do as the Japanese do…
And have a bowl of miso soup. Too much alcohol leaves you dehydrated and in need of a refill of sodium and other vital nutrients. Miso restores what’s been depleted and has the added bonus of improving digestion—which, as you know, can be pretty impaired after a night on the town.
Sip some kombucha tea
Apparently there’s a dash of alcohol in kombucha, which may contribute to easing a hangover. Like miso, kombucha is fermented and contains bacteria that helps settle a queasy stomach.
Double your dose of Omega 3s
Among numerous other good things, Omega 3s help reduce the inflammation that’s caused by alcohol and leads to hangovers. Omega 3s are also great at combating the dreaded puffy redness around your eyes and face the morning after.
Drink a tall glass of coconut water
Coconut water is full of electrolytes—in fact, it contains the same five electrolytes found in our blood. Alcohol depletes the body’s vital fluids, which means restoring those electrolytes is key. Next time you’re feeling wooly, try rehydrating with refreshing coconut water instead of a sports drink—and no, a pina colada doesn’t count.
Some people like to travel by train because it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of an airplane.
I think my pilot was a little inexperienced. We were sitting on the runway, and he said, “OK, folks, we’re gonna be taking off in a just few—whoa! Here we go.”
“I can’t wait until your vacation is over.” —Everyone following you on Instagram
A man knocked on my door and asked for a donation toward the local swimming pool. So I gave him a glass of water.

Just found the worst page in the entire dictionary. What I saw was disgraceful, disgusting, dishonest, and disingenuous.

My cat just walked up to the paper shredder and said, “Teach me everything you know.”
“Just because you can’t dance doesn’t mean you shouldn’t dance.” —Alcohol
