Friday challenge: Enjoy a premium beverage and savor it slowly.
On select Fridays, I will pose a challenge to you, the reader, to improve your lives and careers in some small way. Do you accept the challenge?
Many adults enjoy having an alcoholic beverage in the evening to relax and unwind. It can be a very pleasant and positive experience. However, it can also lead to problems if taken to excess.
The pressures and stresses of life as a busy professional or executive can often lead down a bad path. One strategy that might help is to buy premium products and learn to enjoy them slowly.
If you buy a bottle of small batch whiskey, or a great wine, that costs $100, you will naturally treat it differently than a $15 variety. When you do the math and realize the value of each glass it forces you to slow down.
Premium products not only cost more but are likely crafted to a higher standard. You will want to savor each sip in smaller bits. You will move it around in your mouth to let the different taste buds register the many layers of flavor and complexity.
Then, when you turn in for the evening after having only one or two drinks you are relaxed without suffering the ill effects the next day.
Buy premium and enjoy it slowly.
