Healthy Habits – Week 5: Skip Alcohol

red-wine-2443699_1920I love my glass of wine in the evening after a long, often exhausting but hopefully successful day. I really do. However I will cut back on it and skip any alcohol on workdays.

There is a lot of debate as to whether a single glass of wine in the evening is helping or harming your health. As with any nutrition advice, the science data and recommendations change about twice a year.

What I do think it does, is to negatively impact the quality of your sleep. Moderate amounts of alcohol help us to fall asleep, but they don’t really lead to a good and deep sleep throughout the night.

More than a glass is bad for your health and brain anyway, there is little debate on that.

Skip the evening drink for better sleep and better health.

Limit drinking alcohol to one glass of wine on Fridays and Saturdays only. As tempting as drinks might be after a long day, go for green tea instead. Sleep better, be sharper the next day.
