good for the body and soul
We've all heard it too many times. Beer = bad; exercise = good. Yea. Tell me something I don't know.
Happy hour is healthy! Yes. Don't you feel justified, now? Don't believe me yet? Let me cite some sources!
Well, first of all, friends are healthy, according to a study in the New York Times. Second of all, red wine is good for you, according to many many sources, but I will cite the msnbc one, here. Thirdly, a bunch of Japanese scientists broke it down for Science Daily.
Too much? I'll break it down. Moderate drinking and socializing are healthy. Happy hour consists of a couple hours (usually 5-7) of discounted prices for you and your friends. Therefore, during happy hour, you can moderately drink and socialize. See where I'm going with this?
2009 Resolution: Happy hour more often. Oh, it's almost summer already? Too late for a New Years resolution? You can call it a summer '09 resolution. I don't care; just know that it is a healthy lifestyle goal.
