Here are some tips from Charlie Chaplin, the master of comedy, that’ll help you get back on your feet in no time. What better way to celebrate Chaplin’s 130th birth anniversary too!


1. Stay Hydrated

Drink enough water when you consume alcohol and even after that. 

2. Eat a Greasy Meal Before Drinking

A good greasy meal will help slow down alcohol absorption.

3. Stay Away from the Dance Floor

Don’t exhaust yourself on the dance floor, you’ll get more dehydrated.

4. A Cold Shower

A long cold shower will make you feel fresh. 

5. Sleep

There’s nothing a good sleep can’t cure. 

6. Eat Bananas

Bananas contain potassium, a mineral which is lost when we consume alcohol. 

7. Walk! Walk! Walk!

Walk home after the party, it will help you sober up. 

8. Work Out

A gentle workout will make you feel human again.
