We used to enjoy “partying and drinking” every Friday night, but that’s changing, at least for some people. Like every New Year, the start of 2023 requires a new resolution. Let’s be honest, the common solution for most people is to stop drinking. It’s hard, but what if I tell you that you don’t have to quit drinking completely?
Trying out the “Dry January” or “Sober October” trends seems impossible, but the concept of a “wet” lifestyle—a more relaxed drinking trend spreading across TikTok—is to our ears. It sounds like music, I guess. That means you don’t have to say goodbye to alcohol completely!
What is a “wet” lifestyle?
If you don’t drink often, or if you only have alcohol on certain occasions, you’re already wet. I don’t drink excessively, but I don’t drink dry or cold drinks either. “Moisture” means moderation. However, determining the terms of moderation is part of a wet journey. As you reassess your relationship with alcohol, you may find that you like to have a drink or two in the evening when you go out with friends. This is actually a good thing.
But what is it for you?
Again, a damp lifestyle doesn’t mean quitting alcohol altogether. Think of it as cutting back on alcohol. That way, you can have peace of mind that you can still drink. Of course, this trend wouldn’t spread without benefits on TikTok. That’s why we’ve listed some of the pros of trying out a wet lifestyle.
1. Readjust your relationship with alcohol
Once you start a wet lifestyle, you’ll wonder why you want/need to drink in the first place. As you switch to a humid lifestyle, you may ask questions such as:
- How do I practice moderation?
- Should I drink alcohol when I’m in a bad mood?
- Which drink would you prefer to not overindulge?
- What is my drinking limit?
2. More energy
Even if you don’t binge, regular drinking can have a negative impact on your energy levels. This is because no matter how much you drink, it can interfere with REM sleep and make you sleepy the next day. Luckily, leading a moist lifestyle can help you sleep better, have fewer hangovers, and pursue your passions, whether it’s working out, spending time with your loved ones, or achieving other goals on your to-do list. You get more energy for
3. Promote mental and physical health
Most people believe that alcohol helps them sleep better. But it’s like sabotaging the body to go into sleep mode. When you cut back on your alcohol intake with this new lifestyle, you’ll feel better instantly thanks to more sleep and energy. In addition, its benefits affect not only physical health, but also mental health. Avoiding binge drinking can prevent alcohol-related anxiety and help you live a calmer, happier life.
4. Improves overall beauty
Of course, you can’t ignore how alcohol can help your appearance.Most of us are aware of the harm alcohol does to our skin. (Flushes, blotches, red skin come to mind). In fact, drinking too much alcohol causes various skin problems. Alcohol also dehydrates the body, which can make the face swollen and puffy. However, it can also cause nasolabial folds and wrinkles. Because your liver has a hard time metabolizing alcohol, some of the toxins are excreted through your breath, sweat, or urine. Drinking alcohol can also make you smelly because your liver has a hard time processing it.
Why not try it?
I’m not sure what you think of this, but the humid lifestyle sounds like it’s worth a look. and give you all the tips and tricks to help you get started.
@hana.elson replies to @georgia_paneriniapolis when it comes to drinking in moderation.I truly believe that small changes add up!! #damplifestyle #drinkingculture #moderationiskey #lifeadvice ♬ Original sound – Hana
This trend was spurred by TikToker’s @hana.elson. She offers plenty of advice for practicing moderation when it comes to drinking: Elson proves “she doesn’t have to buy seven drinks in a minute” when she goes out to a bar with her friends. Claims to order mocktails often to do.
Elson also drinks water in between alcoholic beverages, declines shots when they are offered, and tries to keep her future self in mind while doing so. I interpret it as somewhat inebriated as a sign that I need to go home. Basically, an easy way to put this trend into practice is to keep the “why” in mind. Remember the rationale behind moderate drinking. This could be a desire to be more productive in the morning, to focus on healthy alternatives to coping mechanisms, or to improve social skills without using alcohol as a crutch.
@hana.elson & The Perfect Wet Night is a combination of many of these habits! Lmk what else should I add 🙂 #damplifestyle #sobercurious #dryjanuary #dryishjanuary ♬ Original Sound – Hana
Obviously, it’s not that easy, especially for fellow alcoholics. Elson also makes videos on how to start a humid lifestyle this year. She divides change into her two categories: small change and big change. Those starting the trend should make small changes, such as starting out with cocktails, drinking water in between, adding lower alcohol options, and learning how to enter a calm environment just before they start drinking. You can add
Those wanting a bigger change can try saying no to shots and no to hard alcohol, sticking to the same alcohol overnight, sticking to Cinderella Nights when you can change your habits.
If you want to limit your alcohol use, examine your drinking habits, or limit drinking to special occasions, a wet lifestyle is a smart decision. Many of us now want to be more conscientious and healthy in our lifestyles. One way he does that is by limiting his alcohol consumption. This will give you more control over your physical and mental health.
Still, I’ll raise my glass to whatever drink suits my mood.
