In the movies, hangover symptoms – headaches, sweating, nausea, fatigue, poor vision – are often amusing. But in real life, they aren’t funny and are a painful result of too much alcohol in the system. Here are five quick ways to avoid a hangover. Drink slowly. Also, don’t drink by yourself. Don’t smoke as smoking makes the hangover worse. Furthermore, eat a full meal before drinking. Lastly, drink lots of water before you go to bed.
Here’s a weekly wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat. Enjoy your weekend!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK – ALMOND BUTTER SMOOTHIE
I have a hard time getting in any fruit or vegetables. So, I use smart substitutions and make healthy smoothies while keeping them just as delicious. Also, I don’t like spending too much time in the kitchen post workout so I usually choose to whip up a smoothie in five minutes or less. Get your recipe here.
