Dry (Wine) January: Finding Your Balance This Year

At ONEHOPE, we believe in balance. That’s why we’re kicking off the new year with a health-conscious approach to mindful sipping and mindful living.

Whether you’re going for red or white—make it a dry wine this “dry January”. These dry wines ferment for longer, leaving little to no sugar after the fermentation process. From our Vintner Collection to our Reserves, mindfully sip your way into the new year with a selection of ONEHOPE Wine.

​​Other Ways to Find Your Balance

Finding balance is an ongoing practice. Whether you’re striving to find balance in work, personal me-time, or your social circle, it’s often helpful to see these three things as interconnected and integrated. If one feels like it doesn’t quite fit or that it causes anxiety, stress, or lack of balance—it might be time to reevaluate and reconsider. Here are some other ways to help you find your balance this year and beyond!

  • Explore the world: Get outside and breathe in the fresh air. Rally your friends to join you on an adventure or take part in a solo one.
  • Disconnect to reconnect: These days, we’re increasingly more connected to our computers and our phones. Turn off your devices and connect with your internal thoughts or people you love instead.
  • Treat yourself: Little luxuries (like a pedicure or new book) are what life is all about. Go ahead and treat yourself. You deserve it!
  • Focus on relationships: Relationships, like plants, need to be tended so they can thrive. Call an old friend or set up a time for a virtual happy hour with people you miss.
  • Stretch: Take a few minutes at the beginning and end of each day to stretch and clear your mind. Light a candle, breathe deeply, and enjoy the moment. 
  • Go for a walk: Walking is not only good for your physical body but it’s an instant mood-enhancer, too. If you’d like some company, set a walk schedule for a few times a week with friends or family.
  • Be intentional: Whether that’s with your glass of wine, your yoga class, or your work task, acting with intentionality helps you stay present.
