Benefits of Drinking Water

Just a Friendly Reminder to Drink your water! Ditch the Gatorade, soda/pop, juices and and even the flavored coffee creamer.

Benefits of Drinking Water

If you love coffee creamer, try adding spices like nutmeg or cinnamon instead! If you really need your creamer, another option is substitute with some almond milk!   I’d also like to recommend fruit infused water (I’ll share more about that a little later), but watch this quick video about staying hydrated (with tips on how to jazz up your water so it’s not so boring).

I also recommend you start your day with drinking water.  It helps me immensely!  If I don’t start my day with it, I don’t drink it throughout the day.  I find myself actually craving it if I start drinking it first thing in the morning and I love my coffee.  So, this has been a habit I’ve developed over time.  I still drink my coffee, too.

Here’s a link for you about drinking Warm Lemon Water and the health benefits of it.  Pretty crazy what it will do for our health.  I still need to commit to this one.

I hope these tips help you.   It’s normally said that we should drink 8 – 8 ounce glasses of water each day, but I’ve learned that we should be drinking half of our body weight in ounces.  So, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should be drinking 75 ounces of water each day.

Commit to drinking more water today than you did yesterday and challenge yourself.   You’ll be amazed and what you are able to do!  Clear your mind of “Can’t”!  Feel free to share your thoughts and comments.  I’d love to hear from you.

Yours in health,
