RSA staff can rest assured that their work is providing not only comfort to people but is also beneficial to their health. In moderation, drinking alcohol can actually be healthy. In addition to enhancing your emotional state by relaxing and calming you, alcohol has been proven to be beneficial to your health in the long run.
While the mental benefits include reduced stress and increased cardiovascular health, drinking in moderation regularly can also lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Other studies have proven that for women in particular, drinking alcohol can enhance your bone density. This is especially beneficial for women post menopause who are at risk of developing osteoporosis and other bone problems.
Researchers have also proven the benefits of drinking for sleeping because of its relaxing effect on the brain. This is good because the body rejuvenates as it sleeps, allowing you to perform at your optimum level and remain healthy.
Studies also prove that moderate drinkers actually live longer than non-drinkers. A longer life is due to the positive psychological effects of drinking in moderation.
With all these benefits there is no reason why you shouldn’t indulge in the occasional glass of wine or beer, as long as you know the limits and when to stop.
