Drinking alcohol most nights – even just a beer or two– could be doing serious damage to your body on the inside.
See how it can affect your weight and your blood pressure– increasing your chance of having a stroke or heart attack.
The good news is that just having a little less could help you feel better, look better and really improve your health.
But alcohol relaxes you and helps you sleep, right? Afraid not.
Alcohol is a depressant – meaning that, far from helping with stress and anxiety, it can actually make them harder to deal with in the long term. And although you might think a drink or two might help you drop off, research shows that alcohol makes the quality of your sleep worse.
Do that every night and you’ll probably get used to feeling tired or sluggish in the morning. But you don’t have to.
Just giving yourself a break from alcohol several days a week should help you feel better rested with more energy.
You mean a lot to a lot of different people.
You might be a best friend, a father, or a partner. You could be a colleague or a boss. Maybe you’re a provider, a joker, a picker-upper or a dropper-offer.
Whatever part you play in the lives of those around you, cutting back on alcohol a few days a week could help you play it with more energy, more personality – more you.
