31 things to do instead of drinking during Dry January

Here’s a list of things that you can try if you need something to do during Dry January. Remember, the most important thing is to find activities that bring you joy and help you feel fulfilled and satisfied.

  1. Go for a walk or run – free and cleans your head
  2. Take a yoga or exercise class – endorphines for the win
  3. Try a new hobby, like painting or pottery – what’s not to love about new skills

  5. Have a movie or game night with friends – spend quality time with quality people
  6. Volunteer at a local organization – it’s the most fulfilling time you can spend
  7. Read a book or listen to an audiobook – we love the BBC podcasts
  8. Take a cooking or baking class – people who can cook are sexier, as a UK dating app recently found out
