It might not be easy to look at the big picture when your brain is attempting to punch its way out of your skull, but give it a go. Ask yourself this: how long is your hangover going to last? One day. Alright, alright: possibly two given that you really went for it last night and none of us are as young as we used to be. But, basically, your throbbing head will pass. Your night out, though: if you really let loose (and given that you have now read almost an entire article full of attempts to glorify your headache, we’re guessing you did), it should stick in the mind for ages. Thus, a hangover is not a sign of poor life choices. It is, in fact, the result of being a broad thinker: a bigger picture person, a real strategic mind. You’re not a fool – you’re playing the long game, taking a short term hit for a long term benefit. Well done you! Erm, unless you got so drunk that you can’t remember last night. In that case, you’re on your own.
