How to feel better after you have overindulged in food
It tasted so good, so you kept eating and eating, but now you feel overindulged. You may also feel a burning sensation in your chest. To get full relief you have to wait some time, at least until the food is out of your stomach. Here are a few quick fixes to help you feel better.
Don't take anti-acids -
You may think an anti-acid is a quick fix, but by neutralizing the stomach acids currently in your stomach it can possibly create more acid.
Loosen your clothing -
Tight clothing can worsen your heartburn or just make your full stomach very uncomfortable. Loosen your clothing or change into something more comfortable.
Go for a walk -
Talk a walk to get some needed exercise as well as to help speed digestion along. Just make sure you do not run or do anything to vigorous as it can worsen the acids in your stomach.
Don't lay down -
You should stay upright for at least 3 hours after eating. This is because when you eat more then your stomach should be able to hold, there's nowhere for the gastric acids to go but up and into the esophagus. If you lay down you will worsen the problem.
If you must lay down, lay on your left side. Laying on your left side helps to take the pressure off
