It’s that time of year again… the looming holiday madness is right around the corner and we’re preparing by ditching the booze for 30 days. We’re going sober in October! What better way to get ready for the extra stress (and calories) of the season than to cut out alcohol? A month of no drinking may sound daunting, but the positive effects might surprise you! Here are just a few reasons our team has chosen to go sober in October.
INCREASED ENERGY & FOCUS
Drinking drains your vitamin B levels, which are essential for sustained energy. You may notice an uplift in energy levels after cutting back on booze.
Alcohol disrupts slow-wave sleep (deep sleep), which is the most physically vital part of sleep, and REM sleep, which is the part of sleep that helps you learn and remember. And more beauty sleep? Count us in.
This is a no-brainer. Who doesn’t need a little extra cash around the holidays?
IMPROVE WORK PERFORMANCE
Christmas break isn’t here just yet…
Improved memory function, more energy, and clearer focus are just a few reasons ditching alcohol can help improve your work performance. Consider yourself the new employee of the month.
IMPROVE HEART HEALTH
Too much alcohol consumption can elevate your triglycerides (type of fat found in your blood), causing fat to build up in your arteries – gross. Give your arteries a break and ditch the booze with us.
We don’t have to tell you that alcohol is a depressant, directly affecting your mental health. Cutting back on alcohol helps balance your serotonin levels for more balanced moods. Your friends and family will thank you.
RESET BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS
We have a love-hate relationship with the holiday season. While we love getting together with friends and family, there’s always an abundance of food and boozy beverages surrounding us. Hello food comas and extra calories! Going 30 days booze-free in October is a great way to “reset” before the holiday season. And who knows? Maybe it will help you keep up those healthy habits into the new year!
