Look, we here at Summit know beer and, less specifically, alcohol, in general, is a widely accepted social piece that can help us loosen up, socialize, and have a good time. However, regularly drinking can also significantly negatively impact our physical and mental health. That is why taking a break from alcohol can incredibly benefit our bodies and minds, whether for a week or even a month like Sober October.
If you are considering taking a break from alcohol, here are some benefits you can expect to reap:
- Better Sleep Quality
Alcohol can interfere with our sleep cycle, leading to a fragmented and less restorative night’s sleep. When we take a break from alcohol, our sleep quality can improve significantly, resulting in better energy levels, mood, and productivity during the day.
- Clearer Skin
Drinking alcohol can dehydrate our skin, leading to dullness, dryness, and premature aging. When we take a break from alcohol, our skin can regain its natural glow, and we can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and blemishes.
- Weight Loss
Alcoholic beverages are often high in calories and sugar, which can contribute to weight gain and obesity. When we take a break from alcohol, we can reduce our calorie intake, leading to weight loss and better overall health.
- Improved Mental Health
Alcohol can worsen symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions. When we take a break from alcohol, we can improve our mood, reduce our stress levels, and increase our overall sense of well-being.
- Increased Productivity
Drinking can impair our cognitive abilities, making it difficult to focus, concentrate, and remember things. When we take a break from alcohol, we can improve our mental clarity, productivity, and performance at work or school.
All of these benefits are fantastic reasons to take a short break from alcohol. However, some stigmas may get in the way, like FOMO.
