Things to do instead of drinking this month

If you are attempting #DryJanuary, here's a great way to help support you, sign up to one year no beer here>>

Statistics show what happens when you take a break from the booze:


  • 79% improved sleep
  • 92% feel noticeably better
  • 71% more productive
  • 81% reduced anxiety
  • 53% lost weight


Ideas to fill your time instead of drinking this January:

  • Join an evening class, new hobbies, art classes, language, business
  • Take up baking- it’s great to calm the mind
  • Volunteer- although it’s tricky with covid, there are plenty of things you can do to help others and great causes
  • Join the gym- if it’s possible in your area or start an online fitness course, there’s all sorts out there to try from Hiit to Yoga
  • Start meditating- there’s a great 21 day challenge from Deepak Chopra
  • Start listening to podcasts-
  • Drink something else, there are so many options of no alcohol drinks, that make you feel like you’re drinking.
  • Make lists says Laura Willoughby, campaigner and founder of mindful drinking movement Club Soda ( “The experience of putting it all down on paper will provide you with a template for what to do the rest of the month and is a distraction from drinking.”
  • Start reading; Kindle has free books each month so there’s no excuse!
  • Go for a walk: January’s cold, crisp days are ideal for wrapping up warmly and stretching your legs. If you can’t get out into the countryside, visit your local park on a sunny day.


Good luck!

I recently sold my house using Love2move. Excellent and efficient service. Patient and professional staff who were happy to help whenever I called. Would highly recommend this service.

Mrs Jones

Longton, MovingWorks

Absolutely brilliant service, the chat was excellent as It meant they could liaise directly with potential buyers instead of waiting for office hours.

Mrs Saunders

South Ribble, MovingWorks

Doing it ourselves was really useful! Viewing arrangements was a godsend as it saves the back and forth!

Kate S

Mickelover, Scoffield Stone

I found the system very easy to use, especially when viewing was being requested. It worked out better than having phone calls etc. I would use your company again as everything has been very simple to use.

Tracey P

Jacksdale, MCM Estates

Having a house to sell was stressful, but it gave us a break to take our time and get the house ready. We found love2move very easy and incredibly fast. We will be using love2move to sell our other houses as well.

Mrs Stack

Shipley, Lonsdale Estates

I would highly recommend love2move to everyone. I don’t think we would have sold our house as quick with any other estate agents. 10/10!

Natalie L

Having never used an online agent before, I was pleasantly surprised how easy the system was to use. The team were very personable and friendly. Any queries were quickly answered.
