Do you have a daily ritual that helps you transition from one part of the day to another – like changing your clothes when you get home from work into more informal attire? Maybe you can connect with the ritual of coming home after a long day's work and pouring yourself a drink to “leave it all behind” and progress into a different, more comfortable part of the day?
On this episode, we take a look at how pouring a drink can become a marker for the end of one segment (generally work) and help you transition into a different, more relaxed part of your day.
Tune in as I explain why we as human beings need markers and transitions in our everyday life and how using alcohol as a marker can get in the way when you want to change your habit of drinking.
I share two powerful questions I use during my assessment with new clients that will help you understand why you need alcohol to help transition and show you what you can start doing today to create new markers and transitions that support your goals.
