If you're lucky enough to catch extra zzz's after a night of boozing, do it. "If I know I've gotten a little too tipsy the night before, I'll sleep it off the next morning and wake up later in the afternoon," says Kate R., 25, a physician assistant student in New York City. "By the time I get up, the worst part of my hangover has passed."
Kate is onto something -- alcohol is metabolized at the rate of .015 of blood alcohol concentration (BAC), or roughly one drink every hour, meaning those extra brews can quickly add up. And just like a broken heart, time can heal all and sleeping through your body metabolizing last night's happy hour will make you feel better. Just make sure to keep hydrated once your peepers finally open.
