The year is coming to an end and we can't wait to welcome the new year. Bye crappy year 2020 and hello 2021 - to a better one.
New Year's Eve is a celebration of new beginnings - but also of alcohol! It flows in torrents and in the end you don't notice anything from the start of the new year. This is also shown by a study by the opinion research institute Insa. Here, one in eight stated that they consume more alcohol over the holidays and also like to drink “beyond their thirst”.
So that this doesn't happen this year, we'll show you five reasons today why you should celebrate New Year's Eve without alcohol. With Laori Juniper No 1 that's no problem at all - because giving up alcohol doesn't mean giving up enjoyment!
1. Your new year starts full of energy
Even though we feel alcohol helps us fall asleep, it's a persistent myth. The opposite is the case: it messes up your sleep patterns, which is why you wake up the next morning neither mentally nor physically refreshed. That brings us to the next point: reduced energy! Alcohol not only dehydrates you, but also robs you of energy. If you stay alcohol-free on New Year's Eve, nothing stands in the way of an energetic start to the new year!
2. Getting started in Dry January is easier
We all do it: make resolutions for the new year and hope we stick to them this time. A common New Year's resolution is to cut back on alcohol. What fits better than the Dry January? If you stay alcohol-free on New Year's Eve, it will be a lot easier for you to start Dry January. So you celebrate dry January soberly.
3. You (happily) remember the start of the new year
It was a long night into the new year with a few too many glasses of sparkling wine and the next morning the rude awakening: you have a film tear! It's never nice to wake up with gaps in your memory. With non-alcoholic drinks, you can be part of every round and remember the most beautiful moments the next morning! Another plus: you don't have to think about unpleasant things that happened the night before. Because sometimes it's worse when you can remember the night. So that you don't have to panic in the new year, try the alcohol-free alternative.
4. You start the new year with radiant skin
Alcohol has a negative effect on the complexion. Pale skin and a puffy face are the result of drinking too much alcohol. If you reach for a non-alcoholic drink, your mirror will show you a fresh and radiant complexion - and who doesn't want to start the new year with a radiant look?
5. You are emotionally more stable
Although we often associate alcohol with being in a good mood and having fun, it depresses our mood in the long run. It influences processes in our brain and acts like a sedative. So if you want to celebrate the new year in a good mood, try it non-alcoholic!
