The DL on #AlcoholFreefor40

 

5 Reasons to take the Alcohol-Free for Forty Challenge

  1. Feel better– The effects of alcohol span throughout the entire body, including the brain, heart, and liver. During the challenge, you’ll experience less bloating, healthier-looking skin, better hydration, less inflammation, and most importantly, no hangovers!
  2. Mental Clarity– The consequences of alcohol on the brain are no joke. Throughout the challenge, you may start to notice more restful sleep, stress relief, improved mood, and a clear mind.
  3. Save money– The cost of alcohol can add up over time. You might notice a happier bank account during the challenge. Check out this online tool by Finder.com that calculates your “liquidity” to determine your true savings (www.finder.com/sobriety-savings). 
  4. Weight loss– Alcohol contributes to tons of extra empty calories. One of the benefits participants have seen in the past is significant body fat loss. 
  5. Develop healthier habits– Many participants report sustained changes in their drinking habits after participating. Sign up to have your baseline and post-challenge metrics measured to see the benefits of the challenge come to life!

Participant Testimonials

“My husband and I are both still 100% alcohol-free! We feel great, inflammation down, 4- 6 pounds lost for each of us. Quality of sleep is so much better that we are sleeping 8 to 8.5 hours.”

“Love this challenge, and didn’t think I could do it, so I told family I was going to try.  The changes are so welcome, it isn’t hard to abstain. Mocktails are great fun, and adding mint just gives them a wonderful kick. Blood pressure has improved, and l’ve lost nine pounds thus far, after a year going up and down 2-3 pounds. Good program and I’m looking forward to final check in.”

“My arthritis has improved as a side benefit of giving up alcohol for the challenge, my hands feel so much better.”
