Say Goodbye to the Quick Fix of Alcohol: 5 Mindful Ways to Shift Your Mindset and Relax Naturally

We all have busy lives, and it's easy to turn to alcohol as a quick fix to unwind and relax at the end of the day. But as we all know, drinking too much can lead to regrets the next day, and it's not a sustainable way to cope with stress. Instead of reaching for that glass of wine, try taking a few seconds to implement the 5-second rule from Mel Robbins, and shift your mindset onto healthier ways to deal with the pressures of the day.

Here are 5 ways to relax naturally and shift your mindset quickly:

  1. Move your body. It may not be the first thing you feel like doing, but even a short, low-intensity workout can help release endorphins and boost your mood. Try following some of your favorite fitness influencers like @melissawoodhealth, @shebossfitness, or @lisaclayton77 for inspiration.

  2. Drink water. It may sound boring, but staying hydrated is crucial for your health and can help reduce feelings of hunger. Try adding a few drops of apple cider vinegar to your water for extra flavor.

  3. Try meditation apps. Meditation is a great way to relax and shift your mindset. There are plenty of free guided meditations available on YouTube and meditation apps like Insight Timer, which offers a wide variety of meditations to suit your needs and preferences.

  4. Catch up with friends over a non-alcoholic beverage. Instead of turning to alcohol to relax and connect with friends, suggest a different activity like catching up over coffee or tea. This will help you avoid peer pressure and deepen your connections with friends.

  5. Spend time in nature. Connecting with the natural world can be incredibly grounding and relaxing. Take a walk, put your feet in the grass, or sit outside and appreciate the beauty of the world around you.
