How Drinking Helps Reduce Stress
From work to relationships and everything in between, our daily lives can be pretty stressful. At the end of the day, we all need some way to unwind and give ourselves a much-needed break from an overbearing boss, rowdy kids, or anything else that increases our stress levels. At Old Tennessee Distilling Co., we believe that the best therapy after a stressful day is a nice, smooth drink that can help you forget about some of your troubles.
We all jump at the chance to meet our coworkers for happy hour or catch ourselves sighing “I need a drink” after a particularly rough day. There’s a physiological reason that drinking can make us feel lighter and relaxed. Alcohol is a sedative which means it works to relax your muscles while depressing the body’s central nervous system. As a result, your physiological stress response is less responsive and you feel more relaxed. When enjoyed in moderation, alcohol can be a great way to temporarily relieve some stress and allow you to loosen up.
While going out for drinks can be fun, crafting up a few of your own cocktails at home is another great way to enjoy yourself. Visit our recipes section on our website to discover a variety of new drinks that may just end up becoming some of your favorites.
