5 Benefits of Dry January

Skip Sipping to Sleep Better

You booze, you lose…sleep that is. The simple fact is that alcohol interferes with slumber. While it may help you fall asleep, at least initially, it’s disruptive in the later stages of snoozing and doesn’t help you stay asleep. Not to mention, research suggests people quickly develop a tolerance to the sedative effects of alcohol. So having a glass of wine or two to relax and nod off isn’t always the best plan after a stressful day. A better bet: My Chaos Calmer Tea, a few minutes journaling, or some deep breathing.
