How To: Avoid Hangovers

by Rachel

OK, it might be fluke, but I think I may have figured out the anti-hangover ritual for a night of drinking. It has worked twice now and here is how it goes:

Take a multi B vitamin just before drinking, along with vitamin C (I recommend Emergen-C drink crystals, because then you get hydration too). A fatty dinner helps too to line your stomach and protect it from acidity.

Just drink. You can throw in a glass of two of water, obviously that never hurts. And if the setting is right, sweat it out! I always find dancing helps because a) you drink less and b) I, personally, am a sweaty beast when I dance so I think it helps get rid of some toxins. Its super gross but totally worth it!

Eat lots of carrots, bananas, drink coconut water and more emergen-C and water. You’ll be just fine ­čÖé

What’s Yo’ Beef #24

by Rachel


Its Friday, and this week I have had this unexplained feeling of uneasiness. I have no idea what it is! Its like the feeling you get if you’ve done something wrong and are feeling bad about it (which I did not!), or like something bad is going to happen. It’s the worst!


Hm. Today is Valentine’s Day, and also my engageversary, and I had a pretty great lunch, so I’m not feeling super beefy today.

A small beef, but an ongoing one for me, is getting up to get stuff. I sit at a desk all day for work, so I know it’s healthier for me to get up and move around and stuff, but sometimes I just don’t feel like getting up to go to the bathroom, or get more water, or get something from the printer, you know? I wish I could just teleport somewhere sometimes. Teleportation, where are you?!
