It is probably no surprise to hear that I like to drink, after all, I have dedicated my entire life to blogging about drinking beer as a travel the world.

There is nothing more enjoyable than discovering a nice little bar nestled away in a hidden city and sipping on a cold, refreshing beer and reflecting on the day you’ve had exploring. For many, I know their joys will come from a cold beer after a Sunday afternoon walk or watching the football but no matter how you like to enjoy yours, we all have one thing in common, we like to drink.

We all know that drinking in excess is bad for you which is why I give myself one t-total day each trip to give my body a break from the alcohol consumption. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a heavy drinker nor would I class myself as alcohol dependent, I just like beer but I do sometimes have to give myself a bit of a break and follow these rules to help me keep by drinking in check.

Know Your Limits

There are a few reasons why we drink; to make ourselves better, to help us relax or to forget certain things. Whatever the reason you crack open a bottle of wine, opt for a pint or enjoy a glass of fizz, always know your limits.

It can be easy to be influenced or to forget your limits when you’ve had a few but always be mindful and before you start drinking set boundaries.

Pace Yourself

If you know you’re in for a long night of drinking, don’t go full throttle and have four pints within an hour. You’ll be in bed before midnight and what fun is that?

Stick to low percentage drinks and keep off the hard stuff for a while, it will certainly send you in another direction, so keep your dignity as long as possible.

Drink Water

Boring I know, but when the morning comes you’ll thank me.

I try to drink a glass of water every three beers or so just to keep me hydrated and save me from the dreaded banging head in the morning.

As soon as I get home, I have another glass of water and you’ll refuel your body, helping to rid of all the toxins in your body.

Be Wary of Mixing Heat with Alcohol

As a traveller, I often find myself enjoying a pint in the midday sun but if you’re not careful, it’s a dangerous combination.

You’re more susceptible to dehydration and therefore more likely to develop headaches, dizziness, sickness and tiredness. Try to keep out of the sun and regularly rehydrate with water.

Never Mix Drinks

We’ve all heard it but rarely stick to it.

Wine, beer, spirits; choose one and stick to it otherwise, you’ll find yourself getting drunk quicker, feeling ill and of course, suffering from a bad hangover and vowing never to do that again.
