The social impact of quitting drinking is a challenge for anybody getting sober curious. In this episode, Ruby talks to Daybreaker founder Radha Agwaral about finding a sense of true belonging on the other side of booze.
How quitting or cutting back on drinking will impact your social life is the number one concern of many people when getting Sober Curious, and my guest this week has been a pioneer in de-stigmatizing sober socializing. Radha Agwaral is the founder of Daybreaker, the early morning sober dance parties that have become a global phenomenon since her first event in New York in 2015—now catering to a tribe of 500,000 booze-free hedonists all around the world!
Radha is also a lifelong community-builder, and her 2018 book Belong: Find Your People, Create Community & Live a More Connected Life, is a master-class in aligning your social connections with the highest vision for your life. In this episode we discuss:
-How to create sober social meet-ups, parties, and events.
-Radha's definition of "sober," meaning to life a life of clarity, passion, and purpose.
-The exact exercise Radha used to change up her social life when she was getting Sober Curious at age 30.
-Why partying sober is a natural way to get a D.O.S.E (!) of Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin, and Endorphins.
-How labels like "introvert" and "extrovert" can be limiting—as we are all "ambiverts" in the right social setting.
-The true meaning of the words "community" and "belonging"—and why we need these more than ever!
