What we stand for

Some people think that cutting back on drinking is all about having less. But at Sunnyside, we’re all about having more. More rested mornings, more days when you’re feeling your absolute best, more energy and positivity. We’re not here to say “don’t go out” or “never drink”. We’re here to help you to enjoy your life AND wake up ready to shine your brightest.

A proactive investment for anyone who drinks

We can all benefit from being mindful and intentional about our drinking.

Mindfulness and balance, not “all or nothing”

Unlike a lot of services out there, we’re focused on helping build healthy habits with no pressure to cut your drinking down to zero.

Friendly, approachable and judgment free

We support you 100% with positivity and encouragement on your journey, through any ups and downs.

Life happens, so we’re flexible

You’re the boss. We always allow you to adjust your weekly plans to match your lifestyle or needs.

A solution that fits into your unique lifestyle

Sunnyside adapts to your starting point, goals and progress, and adjusts your plan accordingly.

Respectful of your privacy, always

Sunnyside is a secure platform. The information you share is always confidential. Read more about our approach to privacy and security.

The Science

Sunnyside helps you reach your goals—and stick with them long term—by focusing on three key, scientifically-proven superpowers:

Each week you set an intention for the week ahead that includes a tracking goal, a drink goal, and possibly a dry day goal.

Conscious Interference

Next you'll learn the habit of tracking each drink as soon as you finish it, which creates a mindful pause before you start the next one.

We know this is a big step that can be tough at times. That's why we offer coaching through SMS and email to give you support, advice, and motivation.

“We started this company because we believe there's power in finding balance. Science tells us that becoming aware of our habits, and having a partner who can nudge us in the right direction, can make a huge difference.”
