A new study found that kicking off 2019 with a Dry January has health benefits! Taking just one month off drinking helps you drink less for the year! It may also help you sleep better, lose weight and have better skin!
Boston.CBSLocal.com says that the study showed that people who gave up drinking for the first month of the new year reported that they drank less eight months later! One of the doctors from the study said:
“The simple act of taking a month off alcohol helps people drink less in the long term: by August people are reporting one extra dry day per week.”
The article also says that 70% of participants slept better after giving up alcohol for a month while 60% lost weight! More than half of the participants reported better skin and 90% say that they saved money after giving up alcohol for one month.
Even if you can’t make it all the way through the whole month alcohol- free, there are still benefits but to a lesser effect. Read more on the study HERE
