Tricks for being alcohol free

Share This Post

There is a lot of pressure to drink. I heard someone say the other day, “I haven’t had a drink since Australia day”.  Even though the response I heard was in jest it highlighted what we already know. The alcohol culture is pervasive here in Aussie land.

Here is a tactic from another client to get that feeling he was having a drink after a long hot day which would usually call for a beer. Let’s face it, the psych component of drinking (as with everything – my psychology study permeates my view of virtually everything) is huge. His trick? Pour a little lemonade, stacks of ice, crushed fresh lime or lemon, filled to the top with iced water, put in a swizzle stick and make sure you use a common cocktail glass to anchor in that feeling. Sit on the back deck and imagine you are on a Southern Thai island sipping a refresshing cockatail. Nice one!

How is the energy of my alcohol free comrades?

You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
