Life tip #5: Drink more water
I had to get a glass of water before stating this post. Luckily, water is my favorite drink. It’s fresh, healthy, and nothing is quite as satisfying after an exhilarating exercise. I make sure to keep a glass of water next to my bed every night and often times find myself reaching for it in the middle of the night. I’m always surprised when someone tells me they don’t like the taste of water. Our bodies are made up mostly of water, it’s one of the healthiest drinks in the world, and water is in just about everything (drinks, food, plants, etc). I’m having a hard time thinking of anything that is not in some way touched by water. Yes, water is in every drink, but most of those drinks also have sweeteners and artificial flavors that do more harm than good. Drinking water helps you lose weight, fight off illness, and so much more goodness! On days that I drink more water, my body feels so much better. The next time you grab a drink, I suggest making it water. I just ask that you please do not drink water from plastic bottles unless you absolutely have to (e.g. you don’t have tap water available where you can just add a filter).
