Overindulge? Ten minutes of gentle jogging will lift your mood and thinking – The New Daily

New Year’s gift: Ten minutes of running improves mood and thinking

The morning after, unless you’re stumbling around and looking to make friends with a bucket, then you should wait until you’re more or less sober before moving around.

So what can you do?

Plenty of deep breathing (stick at it) and sip plenty of water. And by sipping, imagine you’ve put yourself on a drip.

If you just feel heavy, foggy, cranky and sore in the head, then get moving, but gently. Just walk around. Deep breathing, sip the water but also stretch your body. Keep moving.

You won’t metabolise the alcohol that loiters in your systems. But you’ll increase the blood flow, loosen up the muscles and get those “feel good” chemicals activated.

Have something simple to eat. And go for another gentle walk.

By the late afternoon, or perhaps the following morning (the day after the day after the night of shame), go for a ten minute run. Moderate pace. No running like hell. No feeling the burn. Just a good trot for ten minutes.

Still not feeling great? Try this
