Mindful in May
In our busy world it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle and rushing around. This month we want to share with you our top tips on being more mindful around drinking.
Practicing mindfulness can offer the benefits of reduced stress, increased immune function, lower levels of anxiety and a feeling of being connected amongst other health benefits.
In simple terms the practice of mindfulness is to be fully aware of the present moment. So how can we drink more mindfully?
If you are cutting back or cutting out alcohol for the month of May here are our top 3 tips:
- If you feel tempted to drink alcohol, take some time to think about your why. Play the tape forward and decide if you’re going to look back on this drink with joy. If not, don’t go there.
- Don’t skip the ritual. Make sure you continue the ritual of enjoying a special drink, just make it alcohol free. Pour your drink into a nice glass and add a special garnish such as a slice of dehydrated or fresh citrus or some fresh herbs.
- Just because you have made the choice to cut back or cut out alcohol, doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Feel the JOMO (joy of ‘missing out’) by stocking the fridge with delicious, healthy alcohol free options.
