We know that life has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and some people may have found that they are drinking more than usual. Not drinking alcohol at all or limiting your consumption to no more than two standard drinks per day is recommended to maintain good health.
In addition to potentially affecting sleep quality, some people experience increased levels of anxiety the day after drinking alcohol. This may adversely affect people who are already anxious about COVID-19.If you are looking for ways to reduce your alcohol consumption, there are a number of steps you can take including:
- Setting yourself a limit of no more than two standard drinks per day.
- Drinking a glass of water between alcoholic drinks.
- Choosing drinks with low or zero alcohol content.
Dry July is the perfect opportunity to challenge yourself to 31 days without alcohol or even 21 or 14 days. Dry July is a fundraiser that encourages you to go alcohol free in July to raise money for those affected by cancer. Having a month off alcohol has many health benefits, such as having a clearer head, sleeping better and having more energy and productivity, so you're not only helping others, you're helping yourself.
