But the thing we ignore and skip over is alcohol! It's a reality of the business world and there is a direct link to alcohol and ALL the wellness categories above. It's a taboo subject, I know. But I believe it's where the next big wellness trend is headed.
I'm not talking about late stage, stereotypical, rock bottom "alcoholic", I'm talking 3, 4 or more drinks on a frequent basis. This is NOT about telling you to stop forever, or suggesting 4+ drinks (the definition of binge drinking) is a problem for you, but for those who silently beat themselves up or regret how much they drink on a regular basis, just know that adding fitness, mindfulness and healthy lifestyle choices into your day instead of alcohol is actually a hip, growing trend.
One Year No Beer (website) These UK, London based business guys have created a great resource. Check 'em out.
This Naked Mind (book) Is a wonderful book to help break the cognitive dissonance around WHY you think you drink. Does alcohol really help you to relax, be happy, have more fun? I cannot recommend this book highly enough to explore this question for yourself.
