  • Hey, I'm Keri Glassman here with some quick and simple tips to help you feel just a little bit better

  • A cocktail or a glass of wine is a fine indulgence for most of usin fact, there are studies that suggest it's downright good for you to have a drink now and then.

  • But when it comes to stress or feeling depressed, the time when you probably feel like you need a drink the most,

  • I say keep the liquor cabinet closed

  • You may feel a little bit better if you're down in the dumps and you have a drink, but alcohol is actually a depressant, it adds calories to your diet, and it's not going to solve the problem that's plaguing you.

  • That little bit of relief you get from drinking is only temporary

  • and your problems may feel worse when that buzz wears off.

  • Research shows that even moderate drinking may increase the odds of depression,

  • which is exactly what you don't need when you're already feeling down.

  • Instead of alcohol, try some hot tea, meet up with friends, go for a walk in the park, or hit up the gym

  • Find something healthier and positive to take your mind off your problems,

  • or to focus on your solutions, and write them down so you have them top of mind when a moment hits you

  • So remember: Have a drink to celebrate,

  • have a drink to unwind, but don't have a drink to save your mood

  • Skipping the booze can help you feel just a little bit better.
