With the festive period in full swing, we know the temptation is there for many of us to relax and enjoy a festive tipple. Managing the amount of alcohol we drink is vital to our good physical and mental health, so it’s helpful to understand the effect alcohol can have on us.

The NHS’s alcohol support website has some useful tips and advice on how to reduce our intake. An Alcohol Change Unit Calculator is also available to help us keep track of the amount of units we’re consuming.

We’d recommend taking a look at the recent Alcohol Awareness Week campaign too, which helps you understand more about alcohol, its links to mental health and some interactive tools if you’d like to cut to cut down the amount you drink.

If you’re worried about the amount of alcohol you’re drinking, or you’d like some advice and support to help cut down, our team of wellbeing advisors are on hand to offer some help and support.
