Dry January offers a chance for your body, mind, and wallet to reset. It has grown in popularity over the years in the United Kingdom, where it was first introduced, as well as around the globe.
Dry January is coming!
Since thousands of years, alcohol has been a part of many cultures and societies. Although alcohol can be a fun part of many people’s lives, some people may find it to cause problems and throw off their health. People want to avoid alcohol’s calories, which can cause weight gain, and the high cost of alcohol.
Dry January is about using January as a month to reset and build new healthy habits. Although Dry January was first used in 2000, it wasn’t officially adopted until a decade later. It all began in 2011, when Emily Robinson signed up for a half-marathon in February. She realized that she had to prepare her body during January.
She found she was sleeping better and losing weight, as well as having more energy, after her alcohol-free training program. Emily joined Alcohol Change UK the next year and gave up alcohol for one month.
Alcohol Change UK began Dry January celebrations in the following year. The practice has continued to grow over the years. The Alcohol Change UK charity registered Dry January as a trademark in 2014.
Many people are finding Dry January has many benefits. A group of Dry January participants were interviewed and it was found that they had developed healthier drinking habits.
Many people who take part in Dry January consider it a positive experience. They have lost weight, and they are now drinking less six months later. Many have seen a drop in their drinking from the ‘harmful’ to the ‘low risk’ category.
Dry February is a month that’s not dedicated to drinking. This can be found in Canada and Czech Republic. The concept of Dry February is the same regardless of when it occurs: It brings balance and health to thousands by helping people change their drinking habits.
