Embracing Wellness: Why We Choose Dry January Every Year

As the proud owners of a chiropractic/wellness practice, our journey in the pursuit of holistic well-being has been both personal and professional. One annual tradition that has become a cornerstone of our holistic health routine is the commitment to Dry January. Each year we enjoy a wonderful reset that allows us to detox from all of the holiday **~festivities~**. Read: lots of food and alcohol. This is one of our favorite ways of ensuring we start the new year off on the right foot, and as a bonus…gives us an excuse to make delicious mocktails. This month-long detox from alcohol not only brings about a multitude of benefits but also resonates deeply with the goals that Dr. Josh and I set for our overall health. While Dry January could be called a “trend” its benefits far outweigh the cost, and surpass the superficiality of a passing wellness trend. Let’s talk!
