Here are a couple of tips & tools I like to use in a ‘Monday morning QB’ situation, meaning, to recover after the Super Bowl – or any other similar day/night spent drinking & eating differently than you usually do:
- Give yourself permission to move slowly in the morning; to sleep a little later, to skip your workout or do a more restorative kind of workout, in favor of extra sleep.
- You can also workout as usual; just don’t feel compelled that you ‘have to or else’
- Don’t rush to eat. Give your digestive system a chance to process everything. You don’t have to fast all day, but, make sure you’re really hungry before you start eating, and/or fast a little longer than you usually do.
- Only eat foods that you know, from experience, work well for your body, and do not add to your discomfort level.
- Go to bed early.
