Episode #12 - Mindful Drinking and Changing Your Alcohol Habits with guest interviewer Dru Jaeger, Co-Founder of Club Soda
The tables are turned and Mind: Unlocked co-founder Niraj was interviewed about his drinking habits (yes, there is still alcohol involved), mindful drinking, how alcohol affects our brain - apart from the obvious!
This conversation was recorded in person in early 2020 before the covid-19 pandemic. If anything, it's even more relevant now.
Dru and Niraj discuss how we can change our relationship to alcohol so that we are each happier with it whether that's as a drinker, non-drinker or somewhere in between.
Club Soda is the leading mindful drinking movement and we are humbled to call them friends. Today's guest interviewer is Dru Jaeger, co-founder of Club Soda and mindful drinker (obviously!)

Another person we really rate in the low and no alcohol / mindful drinking arena is Camille Vidal, whose platform for conscious alcohol consumption is La Maison Wellness.
