Chances are, your boss knows you’re not actually sick on the Monday after nfl” target=”_blank”>Sunday football returns< — and that means that the morning after is frequently fraught with headaches, nausea and irritability. It’s never fun going to work with a monster-hangover.
Millions of Americans are expected to call out "sick" on the Monday after the Super Bowl.
Basically, it’s a popular day to stay home and recover, and it’s likely that your boss will know that you aren’t really sick. That said, it’s probably a good idea to try and avoid that post-game hangover, or at least do what you can to make the symptoms manageable.
Obviously, the best way to avoid a hangover is to not drink. But for anyone looking to have a few anyway, Fox News has previously reported that a good rule of thumb is to drink a glass of water between every alcoholic beverage. Also, drinking electrolyte-rich drinks can be helpful as well.
While there’s no cure for a hangover, some foods can also be a big help with the effects. For example, eggs contain an amino acid called cysteine that can break down acetaldehyde (a byproduct produced when your liver breaks down ethanol), and they’re also high in B vitamins, which studies have previously shown can help with the symptoms. Bananas, meanwhile, can help bring your potassium levels back up to normal.

Lastly, a recent study from Utrecht University revealed that people with lowered levels of vitamin B23 and zinc suffered more severe hangovers. These two substances are commonly found in meat, suggesting that Super Bowl Sunday may not be the best time to try going vegan.
