HOW TO SURVIVE A FESTIVAL TEETOTAL: 3 WAYS TO KEEP UP WITH THE PARTY


Festivals are so much fun!

All your mates together, the lycra, the wigs, the glitter and some of the best times. But let’s face it, a big part of the banter is fuelled by the booze (and the rest). So can you still have all the shameless fun, loads of energy and get super-high to party all-night-long when you no longer drink the hard stuff? This is the question I asked myself.

Deciding to give up drink and become teetotal earlier this year was a long-time coming. I didn’t enjoy it anymore. It just didn’t agree with me, I always felt flat and a bit ‘meh’ the next day, so one day it made sense to stop, and that was it.

But I didn’t assess all scenarios, especially not the ‘sober-Jody-at-a-festival’ one. So when we got Glasto tickets, I was torn. Could I return to the greatest festival in the world, the best music, the best DJs and be knee-deep in the mud…sober? And deal with the long-drop toilets, soggy tent and muddy clothes? I wasn’t sure.

Then it hit me, life doesn’t just stop when you stop drinking. Why shouldn’t I still go? I’d have loads of fun in my own way.

And now i’m back with Glasto done, sober.

How was it? I’m feeling great!!!! I had loads of fun, stayed out late, partied hard, danced till I dropped (literally) and had all the banter to boot.

So how did I do it? Here’s 3 things to help you rock-n-roll:

1) Food boosts: Take instant energy food; Bounce balls, 100% raw cacao, raw chocolate energy balls, broccoli sprouts, superfood powder are all great

2) Instant energy: Do some deep breathing (into the abdomen), speedy morning meditation (just for 15 mins), Tapping on tiredness is so effective for an instant boost (ASK ME MORE)

3) Rest up: Take little bursts of ‘time-out’ alone, to regroup yourself, and have trips back to the tent for a rest
Now there’s no excuse to miss the party. Sober raving is the new trend #consciousclubbing Check out the Morning Glory parties.

Have a great weekend
