I'm not here to tell you to be out and proud and publicly sober during Christmas. It's pointless. And it won't work. It's about doing what makes you feel most comfortable. Getting the attention off you and back onto everyone else. So here's a few handy lies to tell your office drinking cronies.
Hot on the heels of why you should start drinking green juice for life-changing mojo, here's a simple way to get started with two super-easy recipes to inspire you to drink your greens.
Often the issues of identity and loss become key, especially if expats frequently relocate to different countries and settings: Who am I? Where is home? How do others perceive me? Do I want to fit it, and how can I do that, without losing aspects of my identity, which are important to me?
