I know. Believe me, I know that getting back to healthier eating after the holiday slope is not an easy one. My lunch today? Two bowls of the kids’ Santa Cereal. Shhh, don’t tell!
A lot of New Year’s resolutions call for better eating. Sugar detox, more fruits and veggies, no snacking, limit the grains. I get that, and none of it’s a bad idea. I’ll likely even hop on a temporary bandwagon or two, so knock yourself out!
The healthy habit that I encourage for all of us with a vengeance, though, is to hydrate. We don’t drink enough water, friends!
Why bother? Drinking plenty of water can…
- prevent ugly alligator skin
- make us more alert
- prevent headaches
- speed up metabolism (oh, yes it does!)
- help us absorb nutrients
- keep us um… moving
- help us get rid of toxins
So yes. Eating well is important. I’ll be trying to do more of that this year. But drinking lots of water? A must. I’m in.
How do you make sure to drink plenty of water?
