Sober October – Dry January’s fun, dedicated & unassuming little sister

Sober October: commit to abstain for the entire month.

As predictable as Dry January is, Sober October is more spontaneous and unassuming, but can turn out to be the most beneficial of wellness trends. Sober October is a movement to commit to abstaining from alcohol and, in some cases, other substances for the entire month of October. 

While cleaning up our lifestyle after a busy, over indulgent holiday season is a common, universal trend, committing to a wellness challenge mid autumn shows more devotion to your overall healthy living. You are choosing to promote a healthier lifestyle and to raise awareness about the potential benefits of reducing or eliminating alcohol (and/or other substances).

Stop by Purify U & pick up a few of our alcohol alternatives: 

  • magnesium and adaptogen sparkling waters to bring you calmness at the end of the day
  • sugar free juices to supply much needed fruits & vegetables to our diets
  • chlorophyll drops, alkaline/ionized water gallons, green/red/orange nutraceuticals that detox, help balance blood sugar levels, increase circulation and energize.

Benefits of participating in Sober October:

  • Improved physical healthReduced alcohol consumption can lead to better liver health and reduced risk of alcohol-related diseases. Lower alcohol intake can contribute to better sleep, improved hydration, and a generally healthier body.
  • Mental clarityAbstaining from alcohol and other substances can lead to improved mental clarity, concentration, and cognitive function.
  • Enhanced emotional well-beingReduced alcohol consumption can lead to better mood regulation and decreased risk of mood swings. It may also help individuals deal with stress and anxiety more effectively.
