Let’s get phys­i­cal

SCOTS Heritage Magazine - - Top Ten -

The last thing most peo­ple want af­ter a night of ex­cess is to en­gage in phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity but oxy­gen in­creases the me­tab­o­lism, help­ing to break down tox­ins more quickly. An old scuba div­ing trick to clear the head is to take a few blasts of oxy­gen from the air tanks. So there may be some method in the mad­ness of Ed­in­burgh’s New Year’s Day loony dook­ers then – though a long walk would surely suf­fice. Sev­eral cul­tures also sug­gest a bout of slap and tickle with your spouse or part­ner as a hang­over cure-all (al­though if you’ve said or done some­thing you shouldn’t when you were drunk, good luck).
