None of that “drink a glass of water between drinks” or only have one drink an hour. You already didn’t do that. This guide is for those times where you had two margaritas and a tequila shot in the span of an hour and a half, thought you were invincible, and continued to drink without eating dinner (definitely not speaking from experience here). How do you take care of yourself the morning after, when you feel like actual death? We went to the experts to find out how to cure a hangover.
By this point in the pandemic, many of us have adapted to life without a formal gym. We’ve found fitness instructors on Youtube or Instagram and have subscribed to online workout classes. Slowly but surely, we are starting to amass the equipment required for our own personal fitness regimens whether that’s long-distance running or HIIT—though we may still occasionally use soup cans for light weights. Forced out of your comfort zone, you may have even discovered a new routine you like better than the gym. We polled six of our staffers about the fitness gear that is getting them through this period of at-home workouts.
The first time I went to a Bikram Yoga class, I have to admit: I only enjoyed about half of it. It was just so hot. And long. But by the end, I found that not only could I get into poses more completely, but that I actually felt more centered, grounded and, well, zen. So when we had the chance to chat with Laju Choudhury, celebrity yoga instructor of Bikram Yoga and daughter of Bikram Choudhury (although, for the record, we didn’t think it was fair in this interview to get into anything about her father — she is her own person after all and deserves that amount of respect) about her best Bikram tips, I was totally down to get her perspective. I mean, she doesn’t just teach Bikram, she grew up with it.
