If pouring a glass of wine after an especially long day of work is what helps you de-stress, you’re in for some good news: The Journal of the American College of Cardiology published a new study in which researchers found light-to-moderate drinking can actually help you live longer. We can all cheers to that, right?

Those who enjoy an occasional drink are 25 percent to 30 percent less likely to die of cardiovascular disease than completely sober folks.

According to the 333,000-person, eight-year analysis, those who enjoyed an occasional drink—seven or less per week, to be exact—were 20 percent less likely to die of any cause and 25 percent to 30 percent less likely to die of cardiovascular disease than completely sober folks. But on the other end of the spectrum, heaver drinkers—AKA those who had five-plus drinks a day at least once a week—saw the opposite results and were associated with an increased risk of dying from all causes, specifically cancer.

Basically, this study proves we should all take a cue from our friend Goldilocks when it comes to drinking: Drink just the right amount, and you’ll reap the benefits. But that rosé-all-day thing could get you into trouble.

How about a nice pinot with dinner tonight? Turns out red wine can benefit your brain—via your gut. Or, check out the booze-free drinks that get Tamara Mellon ready for the day.
