This is an awesome gift going into the holiday weekend and week ahead.
This topic is fun and light, but it can get dark quickly. I’m laying it all out there in the interest of keeping it real and being helpful.
So, let’s talk about it. Let's shine a light on it, to keep you fun and light and out of the shadows. If you choose to drink alcohol then doing it responsibly and following what is worthy of what you truly want for yourself is will lead to feeling aligned with your mind and soul.
Overall with adult beverages, moderation is key, which they (whoever they is) set at 1-2 drinks. Wine or beer are usually a lighter calorie way to go. If you choose a mixer, choose one with less sugar, like seltzer.
5 oz Wine
12 oz Beer
1 ½ oz Liquor
Step 1 in Worthy Imbibing is to Plan Ahead of Time. I like a 2 part plan.
Part 1: Create your own rules that feel good to you and are worthy of what you truly want for yourself. Here is my personal set of rules.
Part 2 Use If Then Statements, so you’ll have a plan, in case drinking gets away from you.
Here is my personal example: If I notice I have drank more than I planned, I will have a glass of water, practice the pause and do something to re-set myself.
Re-setting myself might be something like:
After you have your plan ready, make sure it feels good to you. If not, start again and design it so you can feel good about it before, during and after the event.
Then you can get ready to go to your event which brings us to Step 2, before your event, fill yourself up from the inside out with Soul Soothers, do somethings that make your heart sing and feel really good. Listen to a fun playlist, meditate, snuggle with your pets or someone, maybe light some candles. Whatever makes you feel really good.
Step 3 is for after the event. If you stuck to your plan, awesome, pat yourself on the back. If you didn’t and you ended up overdoing it, remember we all fall sometimes. Forgive yourself and move on. Keep getting up, keep showing up, just don’t give up.
