Coronavirus and the lockdown period has created a stressful and uncertain time for many, and a drink can seem like the answer to calm feelings of anxiety. But overdoing the booze can actually make things worse.
That's why we're encouraging Kiwis to #drinknormal in the 'new normal'. #Drinknormal is simple - it's just like the old normal. Stick to the Ministry of Health’s safe drinking guidelines – that’s three drinks for men and two for women a day with two days off drinking each week. Don’t start too early in the evening – if you’re socialising with friends online, take a day off and make an alcohol-free drink alternative for happy hour. And find other ways to relax – read a book, go for a walk, play a game with your kids or watch a movie.
