Myth or reality? Alcohol gives an energy boost.
Myth! In fact, it's quite the opposite. Alcohol is a neurodepressant that slows down your ability to think, speak, and move. It modifies perception, coordination, and judgment before signs of intoxication even appear. Want to dance until the wee hours of the morning? Space out your drinks and make sure to drink plenty of water.
You’re moving, dancing, sweating and laughing until you cry … meet your new friend (the name says it all): The Rehydrator
60ml fresh lime juice
125 ml cranberry juice
80 g of pitted cherries (Get everyone involved!)
100 ml aloe juice
Plenty of ice cubes
Preparation In a pitcher, combine the cherries and honey. Add the juices and mix again. Put 1 cup of the mixture in a shaker and fill it with ice cubes. Cover and shake until the outside of the shaker turns icy cold, this should about 30 seconds. Pour into glasses. Repeat the process for the rest of the mixture.
*Did you know? In French, the shaker is called a coquetelier. Try repeating that word five times fast!
Alternating a glass of alcohol with a glass of water prevents dehydration.
Fill your beer bottle with water, no one will know the difference 😉
Making sure everyone got home safely – or has the means to do so – that’s friendship!
Which glass is considered ‘one too many’? It’s certainly not that pre-bedtime glass of water!

Myth or reality? A “dry January” will compensate for the excesses of December.
Myth! If you don't feel like drinking alcohol for a day, a week, a month, a year or a lifetime, that's fine. But there is no compensatory phenomenon. A month without drinking alcohol will not make up for your past abuse, nor will it make the abuse that follows less harmful. It is always better to drink regularly in moderation than to excess on occasion.
