You are not alone; today is the worst day for Christmas party hangovers in the UK

HANGOVER HERO.jpg

Doing the limbo, shots of tequila and kicking off those high-heels to grab onto a colleague doing the conga was amazing fun last night, right? Now you're a shivery and sweaty mess, exhausted beyond belief, you’ve got fuzzy vision and a stomach that’s threatening to flip every time you move your head.

But there is some good news - the worst might already be over. Researchers reckon 9.35am this morning was the most hungover point of the year.

So if you’re feeling a little worse for wear you are not alone - the silver lining is that most people around you are probably in the same (rocky) boat.

Last night was the busiest for office Christmas parties, so this morning will see bacon butties flying off Pret’s shelves.

Alcohol free bar firm Redemption claim to have discovered the nation’s hangover habits by questioning 2000 people with 30% admitting they’ll spend much of today de-tagging humiliating pics of last night’s antics from Facebook.

Dry Jan has never been so appealing.

Apparently the average British hangover lasts nine hours and 45 minutes so grab yourself whatever you need to get yourself through, 7pm feels a long way away...

If you're looking for foodie inspiration then we have some great suggestions for the sensible way to eat yourself through this rather than succumbing to the lure of the golden arches or the smell of bacon from the cafe down the road.

For breakfast go for a fruit smoothie with yogurt, juice and water, eggs for a super recovery brunch full of amino acids like cysteine and taurine which help boost liver function, try chicken or miso soup for lunch with crackers and toast - both good bland carb options for anyone with a funny tum. A hot bowl of porridge is also a great idea along with a booze free Bloody Mary. And believe it or not a spot of yoga can help get oxygen flowing and blood pumping to help relieve stress although ‘sweating it out’ is an urban myth so leave the trainers at the door.

More tips for this morning: take some vitamins but try and avoid popping pills early on as mixed with alcohol these can cause damage despite often being touted as a good cure.. 

Now.. is it nearly lunchtime?
