HEAD OF STEAM

Mens Health (Australia) - - State Of Mind -

Be­com­ing zen needn’t be a dry pur­suit. As the late Bud­dhist mas­ter Ch­ogyam Trungpa Rin­poche once said: “Drink enough just to re­lax and help your ego go to sleep.” This guide will help you de­com­press from the day, while stay­ing sharp enough to re­mem­ber it come morn­ing.

1/ KNOW YOUR IN­TEN­TION

A ses­sion in the lo­cal should have clear goals. Set an aim for the night. Are you drink­ing to shake off a bad day? Cel­e­brate a deal? For­get your own name?

2 / BE A CON­NOIS­SEUR

Fo­cus on the flavours of your drink in­stead of neck­ing it. Four Pil­lars Rare Dry Gin packs in the botan­i­cals, from Tas­ma­nian Pep­per­berry leaf to car­damom and cin­na­mon – more than enough to keep mind and tongue sharply fo­cused.

3/ PAUSE

A glass of wa­ter af­ter each drink some­what di­lutes the fun. In­stead, take a few min­utes to ap­pre­ci­ate your friends and sur­round­ings.

4/ CALL IT A NIGHT

Half-re­mem­bered Snapchats won’t con­trib­ute to a tran­quil morningafter. Know when the night is done. Your head will thank you.
