It’s finally December and wow, can you believe it’s almost 2020, the year of perfect vision! 👓
I’ve been talking to my clients a lot about Christmas party season and how to prepare and plan for it. I like to think of it as a marathon, not a sprint 🏃🏽♀️ How many parties are you going to this season?
There will probably be glasses of bubbles, endless rounds and lots of wine top ups, before you get carried away and find yourself feeling a bit regretful in January, here’s a reminder to consider mindful drinking this holiday season.
What do I mean by mindful drinking?
It’s simply drinking alcohol in an intentional way. And no, I don’t mean with the intention to get drunk, haha! 🤣
Here are a few examples:
🥂Set yourself a limit for the amount you’re going to drink on a night out, i.e. 1-2 glasses.
💧Alternate between alcohol and water when you drink or dilute your drinks.
🚕Choose a few nights where you go out but don’t drink (could you plan to be the designated driver?).
🗓Choose the number of days each week you’re going to drink and stick to them. You won’t feel as sluggish by the time New Years rolls around.
🍷Notice how quickly you’re drinking and allowing yourself to really taste each sip, rather than downing each drink.
Would you try mindful drinking this holiday season? Let me know in the comments!
