sweet hydrated today.
small act of kindness to yourself today — drink water!
clean, pure, amazing for you water.
(if you need convinced why this is good for you – google dehydration.)
start your day with a nice big glass to help wake up your body. go to sleep with a glass of water (i read an article this summer that i wish i had saved so i could link and quote it – but my take away was that drinking a glass of water before bed can help lower the chances of a heart attack and other such issues…plus -hydration is a yes). drink water throughout the day – especially mid- afternoon.
tips and tricks :
- carry a water bottle with you. always. (my bff has one permanently attached to her at all times. she definitely does not suffer from dehydration).
- carry a water bottle with you that holds all the water you need for the day or at least most of it – to keep track and also not have to worry about refilling and refilling again — i love my life factory water bottles but hate filling them up constantly – i mostly use them in the car as they fit in the cup holder. Jon and I both have a 64oz Klean Kanteen, our favorite, which hold most of our water for the day.
- prefer drinking out of a glass – pre fill your glasses and drink up through out the day as you walk by — bonus points for setting your vitamins out too
- fancy it up – add slices of lemon, lime, cucumber, or berries – or a drop of essential oil to a glass or two – fresh mint or other herbs are nice if you have them – mix it up and get creative. cold weather nights call for a hot mug of apple cider vinegar (just a little goes a long way) or fresh sliced ginger root + honey, or a cup of nice herbal tea before bed.
i’m getting thirsty now so i’m off to hydrate — leaving you with a great article i found in my feed today — these are so true for me — particularly the one on making a decision – enjoy!
