Another Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone and if you’re like us, you spent the weekend soaking up the sun – and your alcohol of choice.

Unfortunately, after four glorious days out of the office, it’s time to return to our responsibilities and yes, those dreary old cubicles. The problem with having four days off to live it up like you once did in college is – well, we’re not in college anymore and that means we just can’t hang like we used to.

Chances are you’re reading this in a dark room with your brightness turned all the way down, sipping on your hangover remedy of choice (Pro tip: an icy cold fountain soda cures all hangovers) and wishing you had opted to spend a low-key weekend at home – buuuut you didn’t, so we’ve got the answers!

Check out GlobalGrind’s Guide To Surviving The Memorial Day Weekend Hangover!

Memorial Day Weekend sounds awesome on Friday after a long day of work…

…But after a four-day bender, all you’re left with are foggy memories, stamps on your hand from the bar, and a killer headache.

At first you think “maybe I could use this time to catch up on work”…

…Then you consider taking this time to kick back and relax…

…because you’d so much rather spend four days bonding with your Netflix account than socializing…

…but then you realize how absolutely insane you sound…

…so you hit the liquor store & get down to business!

At the beginning of the night you’re all…

If you have friends with any sort of sense, they probably urged you to take it slow (you know, between the shots of tequila), but like…

And now it’s time to revisit the real world, despite your body shutting down…

Fear not. You’ve been hungover before, so have we, and we will get through this together!

First things first, Cancel any & all plans for the day. Don’t be a hero – unless you’re meeting up with an equally hungover friend for bloody mary’s, it’s not happening…

Cut the lights – like, all of ’em. Close the blinds, flip off the switch & turn the brightness down on any and all devices…

Post up in the comfiest spot possible. You’re gonna want to spend the day self loathing in complete comfort…

…Grab a water bottle, Gatorade, or whatever your hangover elixir of choice happens to be and start chugging…

…get some greasy ass food…

…and just veg out!

Chances are you overdid it juuust a tad. Shoot your bestie a text and get all the deets. You’ll probably regret it, but it’s better to know…

…as long as your night didn’t end like this…

…you’re in good shape…

Do not reread your texts from last night. It wont help put the pieces together, it’ll just fill you with shame. Delete, delete, delete…

…While you’re at it, remove that ex-boyfriend or old fling from your phone right now. Put an end to the drunk texts once and for all…

…because this may have sounded like a good idea last night…

…but trust us…

Grab a cat nap or 20 between movies or old re-runs. Chances are you haven’t slept much since Friday…

Once you’re feeling up to it, hop in the shower and wash away all the poor decisions and the stench of old cigarettes…

…Trust us, you’ll feel better.

Most importantly, do not give up and call in sick. Your boss knows your Grandma didn’t coincidentally die the day after MDW and there’s no way you’ve suddenly come down with some obscure illness…

You can do this!
