Science supports taking a booze break. Here’s how to make ‘Dry January’ a year-long commitment.
Drink less, do more.
Many commit to the annual challenge of “Dry January,” a month of no alcohol to detox from binge eating and drinking during the holidays. But even after those 31 days are up, some choose to consume less booze.
“I have a renewed desire to drink less after doing Dry January,” Lindsay Meeks, 34, a video producer from Brooklyn, told Moneyish. “But I want to be realistic, so I would say I’m OK with drinking only three times a week, but I’ll keep it to two to three drinks only. I’m trying to reprogram how I think about my free time, which is really the key.”
