There are a variety of reasons we might consider adjusting how, how much, why and whether we drink alcohol, whether due to health, lifestyle, financial or other personal factors. When we think more intentionally about our decisions around alcohol, we are being mindful drinkers.
Mindful drinking is a practice of thinking about why and how much you drink. You may have also heard the term sober curious, which refers to a lifestyle practice of drinking little or no alcohol.
Whatever the motivation, we know that less is better for our health.
The good news is there are quality resources and information to support you in your journey, help you reduce your drinking or practice safer drinking, and encourage you to create welcoming spaces for people who don’t drink or are drinking less.
