Five smart habits to practice whenever you go out for drinks (↓):
>> Before ordering another round, ask yourself: would drinking another glass really enhance the experience or would one more just be superfluous?
>> Hydrate. Drink some water between drinks, and chug a glass (or two) before bed. It’ll help prevent those insufferable hangovers 🤪.
>> Before giving that impulsive “yes” when someone says, “let’s take shots!” ask yourself if YOU actually want a shot.
You’re under no obligation to say yes, even when someone offers...even when all your friends are taking shots. You don’t have to conform or give into social pressure.
This is a perfect opportunity for you to practice declaring healthy boundaries.
>> Pace yourself. Drink 𝘴𝘭𝘰𝘸𝘦𝘳.
>> If you want to go out to socialize—without drinking—give yourself permission to do so. You don’t need to drink a single drop to go out. I do it all the time and still have just as much fun.
The overarching theme: be mindful and intentional about your choices, boo. You body and your wallet will thank you.
Cheers to that.
