Are You Drinking Enough Water?

Are you drinking enough water?

Are you drinking enough water on a daily basis? Most of us are not.  It is important to know and understand just how valuable drinking water is to the body.   Nearly every living creature needs water: humans, plants, animals, insects…but I’m going to focus on the human for now.

It is said that the human brain consist of between 75 and 80 percent water. In order for our brain to function properly it needs proper hydration. When you are not getting enough water your brain tends to lose it’s efficiency.water

Some people don’t realize when they are dehydrated. But if you seem forgetful a lot and things seem fuzzy at time, you may need to ask your self how much water have you drank because when you are not getting enough water it can effect short and long term memory.

If you work out, you need even more water then normal.  Working out causes the body to sweat and therefore you lose fluids that need to be replaced as soon as possible.

My experience with not drinking enough came all too close to me having to go get checked out for something I didn’t realize had anything to do with drinking water.  I while back my right wrist had swollen as if I had sprang it or something, but I hadn’t.  I thought it over and over and I could not remember lifting anything or doing anything that would have caused my wrist to swell.

The next day, I went to get a massage as he began,  he asked a series of questions to make sure that he would give me the right massage treatment.  I told him about my wrist, he touched and immediately got on my case and asked me when the last time I had drank water was.  I looked at him and told him it had been about a days because I had been so busy.  He then explained to me that it was not healthy to go without water at any point, and that lack of water can do more than cause swelling.  Since then water is my best friend.

Below are 8 Reasons to drink water:

  1. it helps the body maintain it’s proper fluids and keep the brain functioning properly.
  2. It helps with weight loss
  3. It helps keeps your muscles energized.
  4. It helps your skin to clear up
  5. Helps the bowels stay open
  6. Helps keep your kidneys working properly
  7. helps with mental clarity
  8. It’s also known to help with aching joints

So make sure you are getting enough water every day.  How much you need depends on your individual body and activities you participate in.

New Year’s Resolution: If you believe it, you can achieve it

It’s the beginning of a new year.  Many of us have made New Year’s resolutions and set goals.

Each year some of us tend to go through the motions of setting goals, making resolutions, and making promises.  But how many of us actually follow through with them?  How many of us really have the drive and motivation to carry them out?  Surprisingly there are a lot of people who lose motivation with in the first week of the new year.

The beginning of the year is not necessarily the best time to making resolutions because this is the time of year that most see it as “tradition”. There are two main ways to ensure yourself of carrying out your plans and goals.  1.  Change  your mental attitude.  2.  Write them down.

Changing your mental attitude

The first step in accomplishing what you set out to do is getting your mind right and believe in yourself.  No person had ever achieved their dreams or accomplished their goals by not believing in themselves.  You must believe with all of your mind and heart that you can do what it is that you want to do.  Remove all debris from your mind.  To do this you can go for a quiet walk and practice thinking about what it is you want.  Ask God to help you have a clearer thinking.  Clear your mind of all doubts and disbelief and you can obtain anything you want to do in life.  Your only limitations are the ones in your mind.

Many people give up prematurely because they fail to believe in themselves.  You must realize that we are all born with the ability to believe and the ability to make choices.

Napoleon Hill talks about taking possession of your own mind.   He states ” Whatever the mind can believe the mind can achieve”.

Get a clear picture in your mind of what you really want and then as I talk about in my next section….Write it down.

If you believe it I can happen for you.

Write it down

A goal is not a goal unless it is written.  Once you have decided what you really want , write it down in a notebook or better yet make a vision board and put them in a place where you can see it consistently.

Read over your desires at least 3 to 5 times daily.  Look at your vision board as often as possible  at least 3 to 5 times daily as well.

Develop this habit by doing this everyday until it becomes a part of you, until it becomes second nature.  You will eventually see a change in the way you see yourself.  Do it until it seems automatic.

The main  key is Don’t give up!
