Readers connect with Odyssey creator content because of the genuine nature of these perspectives shared.

This month, we want to take things a step further by providing our users with data to support their perspectives and enrich their articles. Odyssey recently conducted a survey of users' drinking habits during quarantine, the results of which are being made available in a simple graphic below.

Follow the steps to create a piece of content on this topic yourself.

  • NOTE: If you are discussing your own drinking habits, you must be 21 years old.

How To:

  1. Start a new post in Odyssey's CORE
  2. Submit under Community: Lifestyle for a chance to be featured on Odyssey's Facebook and Instagram
  3. Don't have an account? CREATE ONE.

When writing your article:

Step 1: Review the overall findings of the survey, and pick your article angle.

  • Go to the survey results article here: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers
  • Look for data points you identify with or feel would help support your experience with this topic.
    • For example:
      • Wine was the most popular alcoholic beverage in the millennial/GenZ age group, and you yourself have really gotten into wine as well. Write about your experience learning about or finding good wine during quarantine. A headline for this might look like:
        • This Survery Says Gen Zers Are Drinking More Wine In Quarantine, And That Checks Out
  • Be considerate of your audience when choosing a topic.

Step 2: When writing your article, make sure to include specific survey findings.

  • We recommend writing a piece based on your individual perspective or experience with alcohol consumption, as opposed to an assessment of the survey findings.
  • Mention the findings within the article where applicable.
    • For example: "A group of my friends decided to start a virtual wine club, and it seems we're not alone. In a recent survey, 43 percent of people my age prefer wine as their drink of choice during lockdown."
  • Link to the survey findings article if applicable.

Step 3: Embed the survey findings graphic into your piece using the entry editor.

  • In the CMS, use the entry editor to add an "embed" to your article.
  • Copy and paste the following embed code:
  • (everything within the quotes): "<div class="canva-embed" data-design-id="DAD6p9q7xNM" data-height-ratio="1.8235" style="padding:182.3529% 5px 5px 5px;background:rgba(0,0,0,0.03);border-radius:8px;"></div><script async src="https://sdk.canva.com/v1/embed.js"></script><a href="https://www.canva.com/design/DAD6p9q7xNM/view?utm_content=DAD6p9q7xNM&utm_campaign=designshare&utm_medium=embeds&utm_source=link" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Odyssey Drinking Survey</a> by OdysseyHQ"
  • When embedded correctly, the graphic should look like this:

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
