Tips for a Healthier St. Patrick’s Day

Prioritize your health during your day of festivities.

On St. Patrick’s Day, it’s easy to get caught up in all the celebration, so we can put off healthy habits. Celebrating responsibly involves making smart decisions in the moment, but also in advance. Before you kick off your festivities, check out this list of things you can do to help keep your health in check.

Drink water
Hydration is crucial no matter what day it is, but especially if you plan on heading out to the bar or a party. Try to drink water throughout the day to help flush the impurities from your system.

Replenish your electrolytes
Water will go right through you without salt and potassium to soak it up. Sports drinks, coconut water and bananas are great sources of electrolytes that will help you stay hydrated.

Have some ginger
If you have a little too much corned beef and your stomach starts to ache, eat a little ginger. It has been thought to reduce nausea and vomiting for centuries.

Get a good night’s sleep
Give your body plenty of time to recalibrate to its normal state after the celebration is over. Waking up well-rested is especially important when the day after St. Patrick’s Day is a work day.
