The Alcohol Minimalist Podcast

Feb 3, 2021

Have you tried taking an extended break from drinking?  Tune in to this week's episode as Molly Watts details the five benefits she is noticing while participating in #Dryuary. 

There are scientific reasons that taking a break is good for you and Molly shares both science and her own experience from January's successful month off alcohol. 

Molly discusses her own journey and why taking a break in the beginning was not something that she even considered and why doing it now has proved so beneficial. 

Reason #1:  You'll sleep better.
