Essential Festival Recovery Guide

Had the weekend of your life at Glastonbury? Here's how to recover after a big festival weekend

With Glastonbury having just been and gone, many people all around the UK will be struggling back to work after a weekend of partying. After the weekend revelry of dancing, drinking and having fun with your friends, your body will most likely be tired, run-down and in need of serious recuperation. Follow these steps to help get you back to back to health after a festival…

 

1/ Rehydrate

 After a big weekend of drinking and dancing in the sun (hopefully), your body will almost certainly be dehydrated. Dehydration can leave you feeling tired and dizzy, so it’s important to rehydrate as much as possible when you get home. Water is obviously the main beverage you should be consuming, but other drinks which hydrate also work too. Try PRESS’s Daily Celery Juice or Charcoal Water as two tasty alternatives to help you rehydrate.

 

 2/ Nourish And Detox Your Body

 The likelihood is, your diet over the weekend has been filled with chips and beer more than grilled chicken and a green juice. It’s important to refeed your body with good nutrients and detoxifying meals when you get home in order to nourish your body and help it repair. Have lots of green leafy vegetables and lean protein to get your vitamin levels back up and your diet back in check. If you feel like you have particularly overindulged, get yourself a PRESS Weekend Reset to get you back on track for the week ahead.

 

3/ Get Some Sleep

 While Glastonbury is 5 whole nights of partying, even shorter festivals of 3 and 4 days take a toll on your sleep. Camping in a tent often doesn’t provide you with the best night’s rest you have ever had and with all the music going on, most people end up staying much later than they usually would on consistent nights. When you get home its crucial you catch up on your sleep. This means winding down, getting into bed early and turning off technology to rest and recuperate.

 

4/ Keep Yourself Moving

This one may seem counterintuitive given that you’ve probably done a lot of exercise from both walking around the festival and all the crazy dancing. However, it is good to keep your muscles moving after so much exercise, in order to prevent them from stiffening up and getting painful. Try go on a light walk for 20 minutes but make sure to rest too!
