A very, very merry Christmas is now behind us and let’s be honest, the units have added up with ease considering a mulled wine here and a buck’s fizz there – it would be rude not to! With all the get-togethers, work dos, Christmas markets and dinner parties, it’s hard to recall a morning without a touch of a headache. New Year’s Eve proved again to be an invariably boozy night and now the sound the bottle bin makes as you drag it up the drive to the curb makes you cringe. It’s likely time to make some changes. Arrived just in the nick of time – Dry January is here.
Time to reset, recharge and reassess, this month’s sobriety might drag on but the range of physical, mental and social benefits extend far beyond the next 31 days. Whether you’re a seasoned participant or thinking about partaking for the first time, Dry January is a kickstart for a wonderful 2024 and an opportunity to become a healthier you!
