Hydrate {A Fresh Start}

Posted By Amy On January 3, 2013 @ 11:54 pm In Healthy Habits,Intentional Living | 11 Comments

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. [3]  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?
