11 things more fun than drinking alcohol
A nice evening with friends and a glass of wine, a cold beer after work or simply the usual drink on the sofa - for many people, alcohol is part of their leisure time. If you want to reduce your alcohol consumption or stop drinking completely, you have to create pleasant and positive leisure experiences without alcohol.
1. Just go and have fun (with friends)
Fresh air is good for body and mind! It helps reduce your stress levels, improves your mood, strengthens your concentration and ensures a good night's sleep. Do the benefits sound familiar? Fact, the positive effects are similar to those of abstaining from alcohol. Then why not both in combination!? Try it out!
2. Sport, sport, sport
Sport is not only a good distraction, it also promotes your physical well-being. When you are physically active, you feel more exhausted and fitter! It also helps you stay active and stay away from alcohol. Sport is THE energy booster! And with Laori you can reward yourself after your workout - alcohol-free and sugar-free, of course. What's still stopping you?
3. Read our magazine
In our Salon - the magazine for drinking culture we explain a wide variety of things related to alcohol. What are the benefits of alcohol-free? What delicious drink recipes are there? What does alcohol-free actually do for me? You can find the answers to these and other questions in our magazine!
4. Watch the documentary: “The Global Rush”
Alcohol is the most widely used legal drug in the world and entire industries benefit from the stimulant. The film shows who benefits from the intoxicating drink business. He also talks about the current changes in consumer behavior and the longing for the alcohol-induced intoxication that is firmly established in society. So it's worth a look!
5. Improve cooking and baking skills
Maybe you aren't blessed with the best baking and cooking skills. Or you're already an absolute kitchen ace, but just want to test new things. Either way, instead of drinking alcohol, you can try new and delicious recipes! For example, how about you try vegan dishes and pastries to match Veganuary?
6. Beautify the apartment
Tidy up the apartment, clear out the overly full closets or put up the decorations you bought months ago. No matter what, you always have something to do within your own four walls. Instead of reaching for alcoholic drinks, you can tackle those home projects you set out to do months ago. We say: Let's go!
7. Discover the creative side
The saved craft instructions here, the DIY jewelry set there and then there is the table that you have been wanting to give a new coat of paint for a long time. You finally have time for that now! For example, how about reusing your empty Laori No 1 bottle for crafts? There are no limits to your creativity.
8. Try non-alcoholic drinks
9. Use meditation for relaxation
Meditation is a mental training with impressive effectiveness. The word comes from Latin and means something like to think and consider. Through meditation you can reduce your stress levels, strengthen your concentration and promote your self-confidence. Alcohol-free and meditation is therefore an unbeatable combination!
10. Listen to podcasts
Podcasts have become indispensable these days. They are available on all sorts of topics and in different lengths. So everyone will find something! If you don't quite know which podcasts to listen to, we have here 5 podcasts that are all about alcohol-free and will help you get through Dry January.
11. Mindful Me-Time
Simply take a bath or take a hot shower and pamper your body. This works best in relaxed lighting. To do this, light a few candles, preferably scented candles, and give your body the break it deserves. How about a non-alcoholic drink while you relax in the tub? The Laori Cherry Blossom Tonic is very suitable for this as it is quick to prepare and with its pink color it is also something to behold!
