Dry July and its benefits

Did you know July is Dry July? This month-long challenge encourages participants to abstain from alcohol for 31 days. But Dry July is about more than just kicking the cocktails for a bit. It's a fantastic opportunity to reset your health and well-being, all while raising funds for a worthy cause – cancer support services.

At Emerald Medical Group, we support Dry July. We see firsthand the positive impact it can have on our patients' lives. Here are just a few of the benefits you might experience:

  • Improved sleep: Alcohol disrupts sleep patterns. By taking a break, you can expect to fall asleep easier, wake feeling more refreshed, and enjoy better quality sleep overall.

  • Boosted energy levels: Alcohol can leave you feeling sluggish. A month without it can lead to increased energy and improved stamina.

  • Weight management: Alcoholic drinks are often packed with calories and can contribute to weight gain. Ditching them can help with weight loss or maintenance.

  • Sharper mind: Alcohol can cloud your thinking and memory. A break can lead to improved focus, concentration, and mental clarity.

  • Healthier skin: Alcohol can dehydrate your skin, making it look dull. Dry July can contribute to a more radiant and youthful complexion.

Beyond the physical benefits, Dry July can also be a great way to:

  • Reduce stress: Contrary to popular belief, alcohol can actually worsen anxiety. Taking a break can help you find healthier ways to manage stress.

  • Strengthen your willpower: Completing Dry July is a great accomplishment that can boost your confidence and self-esteem.

  • Support a good cause: The funds raised through Dry July go towards vital cancer support services, making a real difference in the lives of those affected by this disease.
