Booze-Free Stress Relief
Drinking does actually relieve stress, but only when consumed in limited amount and for certain people. In most cases, it will make stress worse. It destresses you by reducing the body’s physiological stress response, but pretty much only when you get drunk. So, that will not work in the long term! The other factor: Alcohol also takes a long time to metabolize, so while you may be feeling the effects right away, your body will still be processing that wine throughout the night – disrupting your sleep patterns.

Some replacements:

  • Try Kombucha (fermented tea) or mocktails
  • Limit your intake
  • Treat yourself to a mani/pedi instead
  • Treat yourself to a date night (bath, reading, etc.)
  • Natural Calm

  1. I have a job where I climb 17 stairs at least 20 to 30 times per day. This episode has helped me see this as not so much a nuisance but a great form of exercise.
