5 Reasons You Need to be Drinking Wine in College

1. It’s a therapy session in a bottle

College can get pretty stressful. If meditation isn’t your thing and good therapy is too expensive, look no further than to the bottle sitting on your counter. Unlike other alcoholic beverages, wine isn’t nearly as aggressive. It eases you into the loosened state, gently taking you from stressed and bothered to calm and cloudy.

2. It helps you sleep

After a long day of class and studying your body tells you you’re tired – but once you get into bed and try to fall asleep, you can’t. For times like these, pour yourself a glass of wine; it will help you drift away when your body is tired but your mind is running a late-night job with your thoughts. 

3. One glass of red wine may be equivalent to an hour at the gym

Yup, it’s true. There is a study that shows that wine contains Resveratrol. Per this study, Resveratrol has the ability to mimic exercise or improve the benefits of the modest amount of exercise that they can do. So, as long as you have a glass of red wine, you can rest easy knowing you skipped leg day.

4. Wine will never break your heart

Unlike the characters that occur in your life, wine is just a lovely beverage who will never purposely leave you hurt. It picks you back up when you’re down. Wine is always there for you when you need it the most.

5. It makes you a better writer

“Write drunk; edit sober,” like the great Ernest Hemingway said. If you actually think about it, it makes sense. Being that your thoughts are fluid and they translate easily from your mind to paper.
