Do you like to toss back a beer or two after a hard day of work? Maybe you and the fellas like to work on a case of Heineken while watching the game on the weekend. While it may seem harmless enough, alcohol can do a real number on our body – at any age.
Taking a break from alcohol is a great idea for your entire health. You’ll be amazed at what can happen once you stop tossing them back. Cutting out drinking can also be beneficial to your work and personal relationships.
Here are 5 reasons you should seriously consider taking a break from booze:
You’ll Sleep Better
Many people like to have a beer or a glass of wine at night before bed. They think it helps them sleep. But research has shown that drinking before bed actually increases the alpha wave patterns in the brain, which is not a good thing. Alpha waves are the ones that make us alert.
Other studies have shown that while drinking alcohol may in fact help us fall asleep more quickly, it screws with our circadian rhythms and we tend to not be able to stay asleep.
The good news is, cutting out alcohol can dramatically help your sleep patterns. And the more quality sleep you get, the better your mood, mental performance and ability to focus and concentrate.
You May Stop Overeating
According to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, alcohol is one of the biggest drivers of overeating. The thinking is that alcohol heightens our senses, so we enjoy the sensual experience of food more and have a hard time stopping eating. Researchers found that when people had two or more drinks, they ate 30% more food than those who received only saline solution.
You’ll Lose Weight Quickly and Easily
We tend to only want to count calories when those calories are cooked and chewed. It’s easy to make believe that alcohol has few calories, but beer and many mixed drinks contain vast amounts of calories. Did you know a margarita can contain 300 calories or more? How easy is it to toss two or three of those back when you go out to Mexican with friends? You’ve consumed almost 1000 calories potentially just from alcohol.
One of the first things you’ll notice when you stop drinking is that you will begin to lose weight. And you’ll do it without much effort.
Your Skin Will Look Better
Alcohol dehydrates our bodies. The more you drink, the more dehydrated your skin looks and feels. Alcohol also decreases the body’s production of an antidiuretic hormone, which helps the body reabsorb water.
Booze also tends to give some of us dandruff, eczema and rosacea, and that just ain’t pretty. Quit drinking and watch your skin clear up.
Your Sex Life Will Improve
Alcohol can be a real buzz kill when it comes to getting and keeping an erection. Sure, a few drinks can break the ice and make you feel super confident, but when it comes time to do the deed, you may not be able to perform.
Those are 5 strong reasons why you should seriously consider taking a break from alcohol. Start by committing to taking 6 months off and see how you look, feel and perform in the bedroom. You can always go back to drinking if you want, but most likely you will love the benefits too much to go back.
