Soothe stress, unwind, and feel more joyful--without a cocktail, beer, or glass of wine.

Are you tired of hangovers? Do you wish you could think more clearly during the day or feel less anxious at night? Are you curious about that #soberlife? Many of us want to cut back on our drinking--or even stop altogether. But in a culture that glamorizes the cocktail hour, "white wine playdates," and boozy brunches, you might wonder, What would I do instead? If you're ready for a change, this go-to guide has the answer.

Simple Ways to Unwind without Alcohol offers surprisingly simple lifestyle skills grounded in mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you destress, reclaim your calm, and feel more vibrant in your day-to-day life--without alcohol. If you're stuck in a drinking rut and in need of a wellness reset, you'll love how empowered and energetic you'll feel when you reach for this book instead of a drink.
