5 Reasons You Should Drink Beer Today; #NationalBeerDay!

5 Reasons You Should Drink Beer Today; #NationalBeerDay!

Let's be honest, we're all looking for an excuse to indulge in the good stuff mid-week. Well, today is your lucky day! It's #NationalBeerDay (April 7th), and if that's not a good enough excuse for you, we can do one better - it's also good for your health! We know know... it sounds like a stretch. But it's official! And we've got 5 reasons to prove it.  

1. It's good for your heart

Studies have shown that, similar to red wine, beer (specifically dark ales and stouts) contains antioxidants that are great for your cardiovascular health. Sipping on the occasional brew will lower your cholesterol and decrease your risk of stroke. But remember, moderation is key. The same studies shows that risk of heart disease increased in people who consumed higher amounts of beer.

2. It can help protect against Alzheimer's Disease

Certain ingredients in beer can help protect the brain from harmful levels of aluminum, which is thought to be a major cause of Alzheimer's. Moderate beer drinkers are 23% LESS likely to suffer from this debilitating disease, so drink up!

3. It promotes bone health

Forget the milk, pass the ale! Beer has proven to help strengthen bones, and prevent diseases like Osteoporosis. Beers containing high levels of malted barley and hops are richest in silicon, which is the ingredient that builds strong bones. So reach for an IPA, why don't ya?!

4. It reduces your risk of kidney stones

Beer drinkers benefit from a reduced kidney stone risk of 41% because the alcohol acts as a diuretic. Drinking beer stimulates the kidneys to work harder to excrete the by-products of alcohol metabolism and this allows you to urinate more frequently, thus cleansing the system - so order that 2nd one!

5. It makes you happy

We know, you probable already knew that. Nothing beats sipping a cold one in the sun after a long day, but it's actually more scientific than that. That euphoric feeling isn't just because you're finally relaxing, beer releases dopamine and endorphins in your brain. Cheers to that!

Now that we've given you the facts, it's in your best interest to crack one today. You know what they say... a pint a day, keeps the doctor away. Ok, they don't say it, but we do. :) Cheers to health!

Trust No One: April Fools' Day Pranks

Trust No One: April Fools' Day Pranks

One of the most light-hearted, gag-filled days is upon us - that's right, April Fools' Day! For a full 24-hours, we're required to believe nothing and trust no one. Friends and family play harmless jokes on us, while big brands spend months figuring out the perfect prank to play on their followers.

Now while we're not playing jokes this year, we have a handful of innocent shenanigans as inspiration for this goofy holiday!

April fools day my cinema Lightbox pranks

Autocorrect Shortcuts:
Grab your bae's iPhone overnight and go to Settings > General > Keyboard > Add New Shortcut. Change simple answers that they're likely to use throughout the day (such as no, yes, okay) to wacky words phrases that will confuse not only them, but the recipient.

While you're at it with their phone, change your contact name to 'Mom' or 'Dad'. Have some fun pretending to be someone else and sending un-mom-like texts.

Wine O'Clock:
Replace your roomie's Saturday night bottle of red wine with some non-alcoholic grape juice. But remember: don't dump it down the drain. Drink up!

Condiment Toothpaste:
Yikes! Don't get angry when your roommate realizes that you swapped out their toothpaste with mayo. Buy them a new tube of toothpaste in forgiveness, but prepare for retaliation!

Relationship Status:
A classic. Shock your family and friends by changing your Facebook relationship status to 'engaged' - and to add a little bit of spice, throw in a stock photo of a ring onto your news feed.

Or... announce a pregnancy with your spouse. Make sure he's in on it, or else things could get messy! Caution: be prepared for hundreds of comments & messages, and lots of disappointment once the day is over.

Tacos, margaritas & babies. A celebration with friends & family for our baby girls!

No Coffee Beans:
It's simple - just pour their coffee into a Ziplock bag and hide it away in a safe place. Leave nothing except a single bean in the coffee bag and watch the roommate crankiness develop.

Or alternatively, swap out their coffee for decaf and watch the true #IWokeUpLikeThis moment reveal itself.

On this day of jokes and pranks, just remember...

Nothing but monkey business...
