Still can't find the cure for a hangover? Well, check out this new trick that might help.

Studies show that you have to reactivate your brain and keep your spirits high, and what better way to do that than by listening to music? That's right,  apparently listening to music helps you counteract the effects of your brain being flooded with cytokinesis. Cytokinesis are chemicals that interfere with "normal processing and memory function in the brain". 

Improving your focus, memory, and motivation can all happen by listening to music that is around 120 beats per minute which is what researchers at  Sunway University College found out. Songs like Kesha's 'Tik Tok', Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe', or even Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream.' Clearly, when you're hungover you would want to refrain from turning on any REALLY intense music because why would you want to make your migraine worse than it already is?
