Keep it Flowin’


Today is totally a sluggish, slow Monday for me. I wish I could say I am exploding with energy, but alas, that is not the case.

In an attempt to power my body and wake up my mind, I keep sipping on some ice cold H2O out of this!

I love my Camelbak bottle. I take it with me everywhere I go. Everywhere!

Well, almost.

The best part is the flip and sip cap that requires you to bite down to sip your water out. You’re actually supposed to bite the top! This is great news for me, because I always got lectured as a kid to “stop bitting the straw!” I could never resist and now I don’t have to. Ha!

You may be wondering why I am looking to water to help get me through my day. After all, it offers no caffeine.

Well, did you know that water helps flush out toxins and waste from your body that otherwise can take a while to work themselves out? This can help relieve fatigue and give you a lighter, more energetic feeling inside, as you allow your body to rid itself of the junk.

Water can also reduce headaches due to dehydration, improve your metabolism, help your digestive system function (and flow) properly, and can even help with your mental health and the functioning of your brain. Crazy, huh? You can read how water helps fight depression, sleep disorders, and attention deficit here. Water is such a pure and perfectly natural substance; how can it not do wonders for our body?

It’s recommended that men get about 3 liters, or 13 cups of water a day, and women get about 2.2 liters or 8-9 cups. Ladies, if you have a water bottle that is .75 L (like mine above), then you should be filling it atleast 3 times a day…and drinking it.

Many people are dehydrated most of the time and don’t even know it. Try purposefully adding more water to your day and see if you notice an overall difference to how your body feels. You might even find that you no longer desire as much soda or coffee in your day.

Did she really just say that?

Yep, I did.

I think that the more water ya drink, the more ya want it. And the more you’ll have to stop by the bathroom.

But hey, it’s exercise, right?
