Have you ever experienced those days, when everything goes wrong, one thing after another? You start thinking to yourself, ‘how much more can I take before I leave this speeding train of life?’ And then you go to a party (or have a party), a thought pops into your brain ‘great, wine, that should ease the pain of existence!’ And it does. For a moment. Then you wake up next day feeling even more miserable. If your answer is ‘no’, consider yourself lucky. My family history proves that alcohol doesn’t help and doesn’t work as Prozac. But once in 2 years life gets in a way, and I still end up drinking a whole bottle of wine.
Nevertheless, there is a solution to that miserable, hungover feeling. Next day you can have a healthy day. You can do yoga in the morning and drink hot water with ginger and lemon, watch films and drink Supergreen Smoothie all day. It really helps.
My recommendation for a film would be ‘Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang’. First of all, things go wrong all the time for the main character. So you don’t have to be on your own to feel sorry for. Secondly, it’s dark but also really funny in a very intelligent kind of way, so it might wake you up. Thirdly Robert Downey Jr is in it and that’s enough said. If you need another explanation you shouldn’t even be bothered to watch it, because that simply means you won’t get half of the subtle jokes.
