Millions of us do it every new year. We make resolutions like losing weight, getting in shape and/or going completely dry for the month of January. And then? We break them and feel like failures. Who needs that? In Season 5 Episode 11 of my podcast Beauty Is a Bitch, I interview world-renowned hypnotherapist Georgia Foster and she explains how much more successful a “damp” January is versus a “dry” one. Georgia makes an excellent argument on the benefits of how to reduce alcohol consumption without giving it up entirely (which she says is not tenable for most people).
Why Go Damp And Not Dry In January
We are talking about simply cutting back and recognizing exactly why you are drinking too much and how to get back to drinking in February in a better, more mindful way. Vulnerability, stress, anger, insomnia and all the reasons you may reach for a drink will not go away without doing the work. In fact, chances are really good you will revert back to the way you used to drink once February arrives.
So why not get to the root of the problem and change the behavior and your inner dialogue? It’s more about the chemical reaction (dopamine) than the actual alcohol anyway, and there are other ways to get that dopamine flowing that are not alcohol related.
YES! I LOOK FORWARD TO #GROWINGYOUNGER
