Chances are your boss or manager knows you’re not really sick the Monday after the big game.
For many Americans, Super Bowl Sunday is a big night to party — and sometimes drink a little too much.
That means the morning after – known as National Football Hangover Day for a reason – can be fraught with trepidation, nausea and irritability.
It’s never fun to go to work the next day (or join a Zoom meeting on camera) with a monstrous hangover.
It might be a popular day to stay home and recuperate (or hide from those meetings) – but it’s probably a much better idea to avoid that or at least do what you can to manage the symptoms.
The best way to avoid a hangover may be obvious, but it’s simple: don’t drink.

But for those looking to have a few anyway, a good rule of thumb is to drink a glass of water between each alcoholic drink, as Fox News has previously reported.
Additionally, drinking electrolyte-rich beverages may also be helpful.
Although there is no cure for a hangover, certain foods can be a big help with the morning after effects.
Eggs, for example, contain an amino acid called cysteine that can break down acetaldehyde (a byproduct of ethanol breakdown by the liver).
Eggs are also rich in B vitamins, which previous studies have shown may help relieve symptoms.
Bananas, on the other hand, can help bring your potassium levels back to normal.
Finally, people with reduced levels of vitamin B23 and zinc suffered from more severe hangovers, as found in a recent study from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands.
