I love September. It seems like a new beginning. Everyone gets back into their routine which hopefully includes taking good care of yourselves. Taking stock in yourselves as a New Year approaches. Following along in the personal wellness list tradition I want to remind everyone about the importance of staying hydrated!!!
I can't stress enough how important it is to drink enough water everyday. The general rule is that you should drink your body weight in ounces of water daily. If you also drink beverages with caffeine or alcohol that are dehydrating then you need to drink extra water. I find too that if you eat a lot of sugary snacks that day that extra water helps to flush out your system.
Remember our bodies are 70% water and we need to keep them hydrated, healthy and happy. Simply a glass of water will help relieve stress, back pain, headaches and remember too; our bodies sometimes confuse thirst for hunger so drinking a glass of water can help keep your favorite jeans fitting just the way you like!
As the fall approaches I know things get busy with a new school year beginning for you or your children and frequently many other changes. Use this time to get organized and think about 1 thing you can do to stay healthy and REALLY IMPORTANT HERE... Stay HAPPY! Start your day with a glass of water and keep your water bottle with you as the day goes on. That's what I do. You'll surprise yourself. It's easier than it sounds once you get into the habit of staying hydrated.
Good Luck and Happy September 1st!
