Nobody is perfect.
And life is too short to not have fun!
A few late nights, extra drinks and food that you wouldn't normally eat is not the end of the world. What matters is how you jump back on the "feel good" train once the fun is over.
Here are 5 tips to get you back in the game after a night or two of fun!
Tip #1: MOVE your body.
Get out and sweat!
Movement can look however you would like. Go to the gym. Take a hike. Attend a yoga class. Walk around the neighborhood. Just MOVE! Give your system the release it needs. Moving your body increases blood flow and aides in detoxification.
You will instantly feel better!
Tip #2 FAST.
Give your digestive system a break.
Pick a 14 hour window of time that you will not eat. (Preferably 8pm - 10am the night AFTER a day of fun). This gives your digestive system a chance to calm down and recover. When you do decide to eat, make sure that you eat WHOLE foods that nourish and fuel your body.
Tip #3 HYDRATE.
From the moment you roll out of bed, drink water, A LOT of water.
This is key. Water helps clear your body of unwanted toxins and hydrates what may have been lost from the night before.

Tip #4 GREENS.
The old saying "eat something greasy to soak up the night before" is a myth!
What really helps is to add dark leafy greens to each meal you consume. Preferably organic greens such as spinach, kale, collards, arugula and brocolli. These guys work with your liver to flush out toxins and are rich in mineral content that will give you added strength.
Not crazy about eating raw leafy greens? There's a solution! Find a powdered green supplement that you can add to your favorite protein shake.
BONUS TIP: Lauren's "Go To" for powdered greens and protein is AMPd Nutrition's "Beauty Greens" and "AMPd Pro" Powder. Click here to order and use the code LAUREN10 for 10% off your order.
Tip #5 Activated Charcoal and Vitamin B Complex
These two supplements together are game changers in the recovery arena. If you can, try to pop Activated Charcoal and a Vitamin B Complex before you go to bed after a night of fun. It will make your morning much easier!
If you somehow fall asleep without remembering, take both supplements first thing in the morning. Activated charcoal assists kidney function to help clear your kidneys of unwanted toxins.
Vitamin B Complex helps replenish the minerals in your body that alcohol, little sleep and bad food tend to take away.
I hope this helps you on your journey to a speedy recovery from a night of fun.
