Challenge yourself to say Hello Sunday Morning

2 minute read

According to the Foundation for Alcohol Research & Education, Australian drinkers are now willing to spend one in three weekends hung-over. In addition, over 15 people die each day as a product of alcohol misuse.

What if we could change this culture? We see this as one of our country’s greatest social challenges but also one of our greatest opportunities. Hello Sunday Morning is an organisation that builds technology to help individuals to imagine what life can be like without the weekly hangover.

Funded by nib foundation, Hello Sunday Morning has developed a free smartphone app that encourages Australians to reduce their reliance on alcohol one Sunday at a time. The app offers simple and small actions developed from the best data-driven alcohol behaviour change research to help you change your relationship with alcohol today.

Ready for a challenge?

Here are some challenges for you to try. Make sure you post any pictures to social media using #hellosundaymorning - we'd love to check out your efforts!

  • Enjoy a hangover-free week: This is your chance to wake up feeling fresh and make the most of every day.
  • Exercise three times this week: If you’ve just had a workout you may be more inclined to turn down a glass of wine. Why undo all that hard work?
  • Have an alcohol-free day: Enjoy every day! You’ll see that you don’t need a drink to make the day count.
  • Head to bed early three times this week: There is nothing quite like a good night’s sleep. You’ll be amazed at how great you feel in the morning.
  • Practice meditation at home after work: Instead of grabbing a drink, start a new after-work ritual.
  • Make non-drinking plans for Friday night: It’s best to do this at the start of the week, before you slide into the path to resistance.
  • Soak up a Sunday morning sunrise: This is an extra special challenge, particularly for any photographers. Use #hellosundaymorning to share the moment.

Want to change your relationship with alcohol?

Hello Sunday Morning provides a very public, social contract for individuals to commit and be supported in changing their relationship with alcohol, while achieving their personal goals.

Take the challenge by downloading the app today at Hello Sunday Morning or search HSM on the App store.
