Sober September

By Erin Schindler

It is Sober September at HOB!   

We take a look at our relationship with alcohol and ask ourselves if this is something we can give up for a month.  

Now is the perfect time to consider eliminating alcohol for a while.  All summer we have been doing BBQ’s, parties and vacations.  Time to get back to doing the things that serve us; eating healthy, exercise and healthy relationships.  

Pictured above is my 10th annual participation in the Memorial Day Murph.  It’s a 1-mile run followed by 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats and we finish it off with another 1-mile run.   As you can see, my shirt says SOBER.  I’m in long term recovery.  It has been over 28 years since I have had a drink.  No doubt, the Murph was hard and stopping drinking was hard too, but we can all do hard things!   Giving up alcohol has led me to do a lot of fun and hard things that I absolutely love.  You don’t have to be a problem drinker to take time off and reap amazing benefits!

This month I will talk about the benefits, and of course the challenges of taking a break from alcohol.  There is a lot of support out there.  

Grab a friend and join the challenge!  Please also comment below if you have ever done a 30-day no drinking challenge and what you thought about it!  If you take on this challenge, please also comment and let us know how its going!  Thank you. 

Have a blessed and wonderful week!
