A month without Alcohol is best option for Health
Many of us will have enjoyed many glasses of wine, beer, champagne or other alcoholic drinks during the winter holidays. Therefore, in January, we may feel the need to take a break from alcohol.
A month without alcohol is the best option we can do for our health.
Dry January is an initiative of the charity Alcohol Change United Kingdom that encourages people to stop drinking alcohol for a month at the beginning of the year. Many people from the world have participated in this initiative and reaped multiple health benefits.
It is logical to assume that drinking for 31 days is only good for your health.
A study by researchers from the University of Sussex in Falmer, UK, now shows how you can improve your life if you give up alcohol for a month, and concludes that these benefits are sustainable.
People who had drought in January 2018 reported higher energy levels and healthier body weight. They also felt lower levels of alcohol consumption months after participating in this initiative.
Just taking a month without alcohol helps people to drink less in the long term.
“There are also significant immediate benefits:
A long list of advantages.
People who took part in Dry Jan last year found many mental and physical health benefits as well as a “healthier” bank account.
• 88% saved money that they would otherwise have spent on drinks
• 71% of participants learned that they did not need alcohol to have fun
• 71% said they had improved sleep quality.
• 70% reported better overall health
• 67% had higher energy levels
• 58% of the participants have decreased
• 57% reported a better concentration
• 54% reported better skin health.
Many of us are aware of the health risks of alcohol (seven forms of cancer, liver disease, mental health problems), but we are often unaware that drinking less has more immediate benefits. Sleep better, feel energetic, save money, improve your skin, lose weight … The list goes on. ”
