60 Mindful Minutes

Jul 13, 2022

There’s value in asking the question: is my relationship with alcohol working for me and my life? There’s a myth that we need alcohol to relax and have fun. But run a cost/benefit analysis, and really look at what alcohol may be costing you (and the amount of space it may take up in your head), and it’s possible to discover that maybe alcohol really doesn’t work for you at all. In her book, Soberful: Uncover a Sustainable, Fulfilling Life Free of Alcohol, author and sobriety coach Veronica Valli explores how we can rethink and reframe our relationship with alcohol, and develop the skills for a rich alcohol-free life.
