“BOTH? That’s brave.” This January I decided that I would do Dry January which I have done for four or five years. No big deal (for me personally.) It’s a nice reset after extra holiday season celebrations. If you are considering doing Dry January or just challenging yourself to try a sober month read this.
Along with the typical Dry January, my fiancé and I also decided to try something new and commit to Veganuary which is a huge trend in the U.K. It’s just like what it sounds like, eating a fully vegan diet for the month of January. I even got the chance to do a t.v. interview with Bristol TV about my experience click here to watch the segment!
Many people try one or the other, but doing both I got a lot of side eyes and eyebrow raises. But you know I’m always up for a challenge. I also am passionate about the mindset first approach. Any type of short term challenge you partake in you should go into it looking at it as an experiment and not restriction.
NOTHING GOOD COMES FROM RESTRICTION.
Nothing exciting comes from deprivation.
But an experiment… now we’re talking.
I wanted to wait a little while after January to see what it was like to transition away from the plant based lifestyle but something surprising has happened… I haven’t.
