Spring Sipping

Spring is officially here and if you're like me you're READY for the sun, warmer weather, and baseball! With all of this though comes more social gatherings, excuses to drink, and opportunities to indulge earlier in the day, Since Spring is all about fresh starts, why not kick off the season with these three easy tips for starting spring on the right foot and beginning the journey of drinking less with confidence:

Mindful Drink Substitutions:

  • Start by exploring delicious non-alcoholic alternatives to your favorite drinks. Whether it's a refreshing mocktail, a fruity spritzer, or a sparkling water infused with herbs and fruit, there are plenty of options to satisfy your taste buds without the alcohol. Get creative in the kitchen and whip up some fun and fruity concoctions that will tantalize your taste buds without the alcohol. From zesty citrus spritzers to tropical mock-jitos, the options are endless! Explore, experiment, and find your new springtime sipper.

Set Boundaries Like a Boss:

  • It's time to take charge and set some ground rules for your drinking habits. Think of it as establishing your own VIP section at the bar of life! Decide how many drinks you want to have in a week, or pick specific days to go alcohol-free. Let your SUPPORTIVE friends and family know about your plans, and watch as they cheer you on like your personal fan club. With clear boundaries in place, you'll feel like the master of your own destiny! (which - SURPRISE - You are!!!) By setting clear guidelines, you empower yourself to drink less while still enjoying social occasions.

Savor Every Sip, Mindfully:

  • Say hello to mindful sipping, the ultimate party trick for the season! Picture yourself as a wine connoisseur, but with a twist of fun. Take a moment to really savor each sip of your drink, like you're at a fancy wine tasting event (minus the pretentiousness). Notice the flavors, the aromas, and the way it makes you feel. By tuning into your senses, you'll not only elevate your drinking experience but also gain a newfound appreciation for the art of moderation. When you embrace the practice of mindful drinking by slowing down and savoring each sip you allow yourself become more attuned to your body's cues, making it easier to drink less without feeling deprived.

By implementing these easy tips, you can kickstart spring with confidence and take proactive steps towards drinking less while still savoring the joys of the season. Cheers to a mindful and empowered start to spring!
