We could not be down under (where it is mostly celebrated), or the UK – where Ocsober initially started – geographical location can not stop us from being a part of the Ocsober movement.
What is it? This is one huge challenge to not consume alcohol in the month of October – a cleanse of sorts.
Ocsober comes with various benefits should you think about it. Have immune and energy boosts, remove toxins from your body and reduce the risk of cancers by partaking in detox juices.
So instead of kicking it in the clubs and bars, this October make juice bars your cooler-meetup place instead.
Here are a few you can check out:
