Yes, January 2019 is already in full swing, but it’s not too late to end the month “dry” – as in, without alcohol. Now that New Years is behind us, you may be even more motivated to try this approach post-celebrations once you've learned about the health benefits.
Once Christmas Day has passed, many of us turn our thoughts to the new year and fresh starts. Whether you usually make resolutions for the New Year or not, here are a few ideas that may inspire you to think differently about them for the upcoming year. Setting goals and recognizing milestones helps us to view life mindfully, rather than just reacting to the “tyranny of the urgent” every day.

The loss of a family member, children who never seem to be well more than a few days at a time, little or no sleep either from the demands of daily life or the worries which surface in the night, the deaths of important figures in our US history, insecurity in the world, global politics, ongoing recovery from Hurricane Harvey – the list just goes on and on.
