Try some exercise. The movement of yoga will help to increase blood flow to all parts of your body including, importantly, your liver. The more blood that passes through it, the quicker your liver can process the alcohol. Running will get your blood circulating and will help speed up detoxification. The sweating will help to eliminate the toxins through your skin. However, sweating can make the problem of dehydration worse, so ensure that you drink plenty of water at the same time.
