Alcohol has a way of throwing everything off. The day after drinking, you feel tired and depressed, so you may cancel the plans you had (the ones that are good for you—like hiking with a friend). You may bail on your errands. You may spend too much on alcohol, too, so now you feel bad paying for something else that’s good for you, like a little spa day. Just cut back on the booze and you’ll quickly regain some balance.
