How many times have you said "I will only have a couple" and then ended up singing aloud Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" at 2 a.m. in a karaoke bar on New Year's Eve? We all know that the best way to avoid a hangover is to drink in moderation, but you are probably not on this page for this advice. We will not disappoint you either. There are a few things you can do to prevent feeling like death tomorrow. To make sure that you start your New Year on a fresh note, we have rounded up tips to ensure that you do not wake up with a pounding headache the next morning. Are you making a note?
1. Double Up On Multivitamins
The B vitamins that convert food into energy get depleted when you drink. So make sure that you stock up on vitamin B before you drink up.

2. Don't Drink On Empty Stomach
If you do not want to wake up to a bad hangover, make sure that you don't drink alcohol on an empty stomach. On an empty stomach, the alcohol moves to intestines and is absorbed quickly by the bloodstream. Sipping alcohol on a full stomach will ensure that your blood alcohol stays low.

4. Get On The Dance Floor
Getting on the dance floor can do the trick of slowing down the destructive cycle of emptying your glass and refilling it immediately. Just ensure that you drink enough water so that you rehydrate especially when you are breaking a sweat by shaking your leg.
5. Opt For Organic Wine
More than the alcohol, the preservatives and pesticides in liquor can contribute to making you feel even worse. So as much as you can, try and get your hands on organic, preservative-free wine. New Year 2020 Celebration Ideas: 5 Ways to Enjoy New Year's Eve at Home With Friends And Family
6. Hit the Gym
Stress is one of the main reasons why you get hangovers. So before you go out for that party with your friends, make sure that you workout. Endorphins will trigger a positive feeling similar to that of morphine, so when you workout, you can enjoy yourself without going too far.
The reason why most of the times we end up drinking like a fish is because we hang out with the wrong squad. So if you want to avoid a hangover, try and stick to people who do not go overboard with drinks.
