Are you attempting a health tweak in this new year? Maybe you want to take a break from alcohol and are doing Dry January, or you want to get out from under a habit you feel might be getting the better of you. Here’s one way you might help your success: Reach out for support!
The Mayo Clinic says support groups can help you
·Feel less lonely
·Reduce depression or anxiety
·Gaining a sense of empowerment, control, or hope
If you’re quitting smoking you can reach out to the California Smokers’ Helpline at 1-800-NO-BUTTS.
For #DryJanuary, you’re invited to join my support group, a bunch of us on Twitter and Facebook are keeping the cork in the wine for January. You can find my group on Twitter @TeamMarthaDJan, and on Facebook.com/MarthaQuinnPresents, use the hashtag #DryJanuaryTeamMartha to see all the posts in one place. This Friday I’m hosting a Zoom virtual support group so we can all share what inspired us to undertake the alcohol-free challenge (some are giving up sugar or junk food, that’s awesome too!) and how the experience has been so far. Information will follow soon how to get the Zoom call link information.
Here’s to a happy and healthy 2021!
