  • New research from the University of Sussex found that participating in “dry January” — a month-long abstention from drinking alcohol — could improve health throughout the rest of the year. 
  • Many participants reported having improved health, better sleep, more energy, easier weight loss, better concentration, and better skin
  • Many also said that they drank less often throughout the year, long after the end of January. 

If starting off the new year with more sleep, money, and less weight is on your goals list, then researchers from the University of Sussex say they may have just the trick. Participating in “Dry January” — a month-long abstention from booze — has shown to help people get control over their drinking, have more energy, be more successful at losing weight, and even have better skin. What’s more, many participants reported they were drinking less even months after participating in the global campaign.

How’s that for starting the year off right?
