I received an email last week from a friend and fellow health coach, Laurie Mallon. Laurie has a podcast – Results without Restriction-and she wanted to know if I would come on the podcast and talk about Dry January.
Heck yeah! The episode was great and the information timely, so I asked Laurie if she would share the audio version and I could also publish the episode on my podcast. She graciously agreed; this is that podcast.
Laurie asked some great questions. Here are a few highlights:
- Start with an intention. Rather than a black and white goal, where success ONLY = not drinking, set your site a bit differently.
- The importance of community. We talk about the pitfalls of doing Dry January “in secret”.
- Embrace the ritual – you can keep your evening ritual of fixing a cocktail – just change what’s in your glass.
- How to ease into February and not lose momentum from Dry January
I am grateful to Laurie for sharing our conversation; I hope this helps anyone who is participating in Dry January, or thinking about participating!
