Reach for better health by giving up alcohol, sugar, smoking, junk food or social media for February

The festive season is winding up, and a break from all the drinking, eating and partying might be just what your body is screaming for. FebFast encourages you to take a pause for the better, challenging yourself to a break from alcohol, sugar, junk food, smoking or social media (your choice!) for 28 days.

It might be tough, but you’ll experience benefits like more energy, clearer thinking, healthier skin and a fuller wallet – and many people find it kickstarts weight loss as well.

Plus, it’s all for a good cause. Get your friends and family to sponsor you for your efforts, and the money will go towards Youth Support and Advocacy Service and Family Drug Support, which provide support for young people and families experiencing or at risk of drug or alcohol dependence.

Sign up for a FebFast challenge at febfast.org.au

Make a change for better health by giving up alcohol, sugar, smoking, junk food or social media for the month of February.
