This is a show about how to retrain your booze brain
I have been thinking about this a while and have decided that for the next month I am going to go alcohol-free*. I am calling it ‘Booze-Free May-Be’ and my reasons are 1 & many.
#1. I am keen to reset my relationship with alcohol.
The Many (& side benefits to name but a few):
- Health & Wellness - I exercise a shit-ton and have in fact lost 5kg in the past 5-6 months. It makes me wonder how I'll look and feel without alcohol.
- Financial - obvs.
- Productivity - you've no doubt seen and heard me tell you what I achieve. Unbeknownst to most, I have set some hefty goals for myself over the past 4-5 months. Imagine a version of me and what I can achieve with better sleep and more energy!
I am not posting this to impress anyone, that I think that a break from booze is special or that I am smashing a high volume of beers on a daily basis (okay that happens occasionally and definitely more-so on weekends ), however it has become all too easy for me to have a beer whenever I want and I generally have at least a couple every day.
I am in fact posting this as I want to be accountable to myself and from experience the best way to do it is to make yourself accountable to others. An entrepreneur that I interviewed once whilst studying a Masters of Entrepreneurship & Innovation**, by the name of Tom O'Toole, coined one of my favourite phrases that I've learned from someone else #DreamsWithDates. If you say it out loud, put a date/timeline on it and ensure that other people hear it, then you're accountable to them and to yourself to make it so!
I'm going to journal this for myself and record a podcast or two for the benefit of others. Let's do this!
