It's New Year's Day, which means many people are feeling the effects of celebrating a little too much last night.

Experts have some tips for taking the edge off 2016's first hangover.

Your head is pounding, you're seriously dehydrated and just can't imagine leaving your bed. If you're paying the price for a rollicking new year's eve, take heart - there may be some ways to curb your hangover, and maybe avoid one next time.

First, before you go out drinking, make sure you've coated your stomach with protein and some carbs or else you'll be feeling sick in the morning. Another important but simple step: Between those alcoholic drinks, have some water. You'll feel 1,000 percent better the next day. Even if you forget to hydrate earlier in the night, compensate with water before bed. You'll get a deeper sleep, and wake up happier.

Don't mix Tylenol or any other form of acetaminophen with alcohol; doing so is risky for your liver and could leave you with much more than just a headache to contend with.

The best way to beat a hangover is still to avoid one in the first place, which means drinking in moderation. You'll find you'll probably have just as much fun and a much healthier start to 2016.
