New Year New You – Guide to More Hydration
Now that you have bravely dove in to our New Year New You Wellness series, I applaud you for wanting to better yourself and those around you. It always seems to be this crazy ongoing journey to wellness when there is so much Ok, lets talk water! I mean, it’s a New Year New Me right? I should be loving these healthy changes, I should be embracing it with open arms. NOT! Water has become my nemesis, it is my kryptonite. I know that water will make a huge difference in the way I feel, my skin, hair, blah blah blah. So, why do I seem to be fighting it? I think it all comes down to a new routine, as with all things our body needs to get used to something new. Once we are used to it, it’s second nature.
That is exactly how my first couple weeks started in my quest to drinking more water. Not just more water, but the water that my body needed to function at its highest and best level.
How Much Water Does My Body Need?
If you google “daily water intake” you get a slew of information. It’s almost overwhelming, there are charts and graphs and studies everywhere. With all this being said, I did enjoy reading healthline.com article on Water intake:
The human body is made up of an average 60% + water. It’s important for all our organs to be well hydrated to work properly. The daily recommendation is still eight 8oz. glasses roughly. More or less depending on other factors including sex, age, activity level etc.
I’m finally Drinking the Water!!!
Now comes the fun part! Your gonna laugh, but I found myself drinking more water when I had a cute bottle to drink out of. Originally trying to count my boring water glasses at home became tedious and boring, I often loose track of how many I consumed. Enter Mami Wata Water Bottles. Not only is my bottle pretty, durable, large in size, easy to clean, and easy to carry, but my water tastes better in it! Just kidding on that last part. Really though, this bottle has helped tremendously in my quest to drinking more water a day. This gorgeous bottle holds 22oz of water. I drink 2 before noon and 2 in the afternoon/evening. If you think about it, with it being spread out through the day it’s not that bad.
For those who like more of a taste to their water Mami Wata also makes a gorgeous bottle that you can add fruit infusions to. This bottle comes with a recipe e-book with tons of amazing fruit combinations to try. Talk about perfection!
Let’s get Started…
