Yes. I was just reflecting recently about how interesting alcohol (and sweets too) are. In some ways, I see it in myself — the reward of a piece of cake or a nice glass of wine at the end of a long day. A yoga instructor I once had mentioned that though these things seem like a reward, in a way they are punishment. Our bodies don’t function as well when we have too much of either. They aren’t nutrients, they’re additives. Always gives me pause.

On a quest to become a better human, I write about parenting, leadership, and personal development. Currently pursuing a master’s in organizational leadership.
