We’re somehow already a third of the way through January, and for many of you out there, a third of the way through a Dry January. Our team is approaching 2019’s start as a ‘Mindful January’: a month to reassess habits, routines, and the “whys.” While that includes abstaining from alcohol for a month, it also involves taking a holistic approach to why we do what we do every day, from eating to drinking to exercising to digital diets and relationships. Our teammate Katie recently sat down with bartender, small business owner, and social media extraordinaire, Beth Cormack, to chat about what it means to drink mindfully, and how to approach a “break” from alcohol.*
*We acknowledge that for many people, sobriety is a matter of life or death, and there is no break or choice. All comments on Dry January or “sober challenges” are based on our own experiences.
