For those of you who know me well, I have a drinking problem – I can’t drink more than one glass (a small glass). It can be quiet inconvenient in a social environment as most people enjoy way more than 1 glass. Years ago, half glass would have made me seriously dizzy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not allergic to alcohol or anything, it’s just that my body is not used to alcohol. It took me a while to build up the alcohol tolerance in my body. Yes sure, many people suffer from drinking too much therefor you’d think it’s better not to take up drinking at all, right? But the thing is, I want to enjoy a good glass of wine. Besides, having a glass can have some huge benefits in your life when consumed on a daily basis. There are at least 4 great reasons to drink a daily glass of wine:).
Now, before I start this post, I would like to emphasise the word ‘glass’ in the title. The benefits given in this piece don’t count if you find yourself gurgling three liters of alcohol every evening. No matter how good it tastes and makes you feel.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having a few extra glasses when enjoying a night out on the town. Drinking a glass of wine is one of life’s pleasure, not guilt.
Let’s have a look at the 4 Great Reasons To Drink A Daily Glass Of Wine, shall we?
Have you ever had those days at work when all you want to do is come home and open a bottle of tasty Bordeaux wine? The satisfaction of taking that first sip can instantly remove those daily stresses from your life. You can’t put a price on that feeling.
Drinking one glass of wine with dinner can help you get to sleep at night. Everybody appreciates how important a good night’s rest is, especially after a long, stressful day. So why not, have a glass.
Just make sure you don’t drink too much. Or you could wake up to a spinning room. Now that will be stressful.
Physical Health Benefits
Some people would say alcohol is bad for you, period. Frankly speaking, I wouldn’t agree with that statement. The key is to drink responsibility, especially when it comes to wine.
In fact, a glass of wine can bring various benefits to your long-term health. Studies have shown it to boost heart conditions and help with memory and other issues.
Again, you don’t want to counteract those benefits by ruining your liver with too much alcohol. The point is, a small amount can genuinely boost your health.
Encourage Better Cooking
Eating is a basic human need, and we all enjoy tucking into some great grub. However, it can be far too easy to stick a frozen pizza in the oven.
But if you know you’ve got a nice glass of wine waiting, you’ll be more tempted to cook up a nicer meal to go with the wine. I’ve always wanted to cook properly, and using this as an extra incentive can only help healthy eating habit.
Improve Nights Out
If you are like me, feeling dizzy after just half a glass of red, drinking a regular glass of home will make you a little more immune. Studies have shown that people enjoy a far great greater relationship with drink. Alcohol isn’t the key to enjoying yourself, but just the right amount of wine can indeed make your night out extra enjoyable.
How to avoid a hangover after one glass? Drink lots of water.
