Stretching is a great way to get rid of a hangover, reveal experts

 
If you couldn’t stomach the thought of going to gym and getting all hot and sweaty when your head feels like it’s about to explode, this is the workout for you!
 
In fact, getting hot and sweaty while recovering from a hangover could do you more harm than good! Experts say because alcohol dehydrates you, your body doesn’t recover from your workout and it could leave you more prone to injuries.
 
So, instead, do this great set of five stretches to get the blood flowing and the alcohol out of your system.
 
#1. Chin to chest
 
Lie on the floor with your legs straight and your arms at your sides.
 
Bring your right knee to your chest and hug it as close as possible with your arms around your shin.
 
Hold the pose for ten seconds while you breathe in and out slowly and deeply.
 
Lower your leg back to the ground and repeat on the other side.
 
#2. Hamstring stretch
 
Lie on your back and bring your right foot to your hands. While holding your foot, pull it towards your head and extend your leg as much as possible. You should feel the stretch in the back on your leg.
 
Breathe in and out and hold the pose for ten seconds before gently releasing your foot. Switch sides and repeat.
 
#3. Seated forward bend
 
Sit on the floor with your legs extended in front of you. Bend at the hips and extend your arms forward to reach for your feet.
 
With each breath you exhale, try to push yourself a little further towards your feet.
 
Hold for five to ten seconds at each interval before you relax.

With your free hand, rotate your upper body while keeping your spine straight. Try to reach your free hand behind you and twist.
 
Hold for five seconds and repeat on the other side.
 
#5. Half headstand

From an all-fours position on the floor, push your knees out until your legs are straight and your toes are the only part of your feet on the floor.
 
Bend your elbows and rest the crown of your head on the floor. Bring your elbows as close to your head as possible and hold the back of your head with your hands.
 
Hold the pose for five deep breaths before relaxing.
 
There you have it!
