Full disclosure: Sometimes, we're lazy. So, whether it's seven ways to simplify our morning routine or how to make our time at the gym actually enjoyable, we're into it. And, to keep us on track, we've turned to Greatist, because they've got us excited about being healthy — and just trying to get a good night's sleep.

Certain articles require in-depth research. And, that’s exactly what I reminded myself of when I embarked on a two-week drinking mission. (All in the name of health, of course.)
But, before we dive into my sleepless, headache-filled adventure, I’d like to explain myself — and also the motivation behind this article. First, this wasn’t exactly in the name of research. The idea came to life the morning after a late night of shuffleboard and spicy margaritas, when I openly announced my hungover state to the office. While I thought my bloodshot eyes and lack of energy were apparent, my coworkers disagreed. It appears I actually have a gift for pulling it together in the most unfortunate states.
What happened next was all my own doing. My boss didn’t demand that I chug beer every night (that’s far from how we function at Greatist!), but rather it was one of those weeks where social plans were aplenty and my willpower was a-lackin’. And, then it spilled over into week two.Related: Cure A Night Of Drinking With A Hangover Pill
Fortunately, my “research” paid off. Even though I suffered from hangover symptoms seven times in a two-week period, I made it through each day (mostly) undetected. In fact, I was pretty damn productive. And, you can be too — even if you took tequila shots the night before. Just follow these sneaky, science-backed tricks, and you’ll be a hangover-free, multitasking champion in no time.
