Make mine a virgin. 🍹
Like most Aussie's, I have a love/hate relationship with booze. At times it's a fun social lubricant, but all too often that can lead to hazy memories of the night, feeling lethargic the following day. So I've decided to take the month of May off alcohol.
I can already hear the jeers from friends, but having abstained for 4 week blocks in the past, I know there are plenty benefits to taking a break from the hard stuff.
What are the benefits of being a teetotaller for a month?
Even at the best of times, I'm a horrible sleeper, but having a couple under the belt can block REM sleep, interrupt your circadian rhythm & aggravate breathing problems (aka snoring 😴).
Morning workouts are no longer a struggle
Who doesn't love the great all-day feeling gained after getting a work out or run done the morning? But even after 1 or 2 the night before, getting out of bed, especially in Winter, is that much harder.
