We’re wondering what this new year will bring. What about a resolution we can make, and keep, that has lasting benefits? A good start to the year could be committing to a Dry January. It’s worth thinking about.
How will life be better in the new year? Looking back at 2020, we can all probably come up with a (long) list of things we’d like to change for 2021.
That said, during 2020, a lot of us have focused on health, especially the health of people close to us, and our own, as we’ve tried to prevent the spread of the virus. 2020 has been the year we’ve learned there’s a lot of things in our lives we can’t take for granted. And our health is at the top of that list.
So what can we do to stay healthy, or even improve our general health?
It’s worth taking a few moments to honestly review our drinking habits: Where we drink, when, how much, and who with. We should consider, too, whether our habits have changed over the past year, as we’ve spent more time at home, possibly alone.
Start 2021 the best way possible with Dry January – the UK’s one-month alcohol-free challenge.
Three reasons to commit to Dry January:
#1 Get your fun back.
#2 Get your energy back.
#3 Get your calm back.
Find out more from the Dry January website.
Dry January is a campaign run by Alcohol Concern. It offers people a simple opportunity: “A chance to ditch the hangover, reduce the waistline, and save some serious £££ by giving up alcohol for 31 days.”
Dry January means going alcohol-free for the month of January, and that can bring huge, obvious benefits.
Moreover, people who take part in Dry January are more likely to establish healthier drinking patterns that have a long-term impact. As alcohol is linked to a range of health conditions, such as liver disease, depression and cancer, January if a great time to realise the benefits of taking a break from alcohol.
Drinking is not good for our health in general, but can also be bad for our teeth:
