Britons spend a year of their lives hungover. Time for a sober October? Taking a month off the booze can have many potential benefits. Just imagine what you could achieve without a hangover. Do something amazing for people with cancer – Go 31 days with no lager, no wine… not even a shandy, all to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support’s vital work.
By having 31 gloriously hangover-free days you’ll not only be raising lots of money to help people with cancer, you’ll also be doing oodles of good for your own health. Together with a few small improvements to your diet and exercise routine you could expect to experience a range of the following:
- Increased energy levels, higher productivity
- Clearer head
- No more hangovers
- Sleeping better / snoring less
- Weight loss
- Clearer skin
- Healthier bank balance / Save money
- Sense of achievement
- Fresh approach to alcohol consumption
- Generally feel healthier
- Doing something positive for a good cause
