There are probably 10 more reasons I can give you to join the Sober October challenge but I think you get the point.

And with all this crazy COVID-19 business going on, having a stronger, healthier immune system, and mindset going into the flu season makes more sense than ever.

In full disclosure, a close friend messaged me this morning asking "how we were getting started with Sober October" and I told him - I wasn't running it this year. WHAT! Yes... I said, I had a few important social events this year, and would be drinking for them... His silence told me everything I needed to know.

So I came to my senses and realized we probably all need this now, more than ever.

Remember, sober October isn't about having a drinking problem, it's about realizing we don't need alcohol to have a great time with friends. We don't need a drink as a reward after a hard days work. We don't need a drink after a long week. And we don't need a drink to sing karaoke, which I plan to be doing very soon...

There's also a lesson here in self-disciple. In doing what's hard sometimes even when no one is looking, showing us that if we can do this, we can do that 'other thing' we've been meaning to start working on next.

This is our third year and counting for Sober October and I can't wait for you to join me in this challenge!

Reminder: Sign up and let us know your first name, where you're from, and why you joined this super fun and reward challenge!

Chat with you all soon and until next time...stay amazing, and stay inspired!
