Five Fab Reasons to Feb Fast

Here at Remedy we’re BIG fans of giving booze a break. (Especially after the Christmas/New Years’ crazy!)

Wanna know our top five reasons to dodge the dranks for a month or two? Here they are!

You’ll sleep better

While alcohol may help you nod off, the quality of your sleep will be poorer. Try giving booze the flick and see whether it makes a difference to the quality of your kip!

Better mood

If you feel a bit down in the dumps or sad, alcohol can make you feel worse because it affects your brain chemistry. Alcohol is a depressant which means it upsets and disrupts the balance of our brains. Give Feb Fast a go and keep a mood diary to see if booting the booze makes a difference.

More energy

Alcohol can mess with your immune system making it harder to fight off bugs which is the last thing you need heading into the colder months! Because booze also affects your sleep and mood it can leave you feeling sluggish. Give booze a break and see if you notice a difference in your energy levels.

Better skin

Alcohol is dehydrating so swap out booze for something more healthy, tasty and hydrating like Remedy Kombucha or Remedy Coconut Water Kefir. Get your glow on girlfriend!

Cut the calories

Booze is FULL of empty calories! Just one beer can contain the same amount of calories as a small block of chocolate and to work off the calories in a glass of white wine, you’d need to walk for just over 2.5km. Yikes! We’re down for exercise but 2.5kms for a vino? Probably not!

Keep posted for our tasty mocktail recipes to get you through February – they’re so tasty you may even make it through to Dry July without an alcoholic bevvie passing your lips!
