If you are reading this blog that means that you are interested in the overall improvement of life. In today’s blog ill be sharing with you a big struggle that I was able to overcome.
Most times we do not understand the importance of something as simple as our Water Intake.
What I’ve learned over the years is that drinking water is very mental. You simply have to prepare your mind to start on your journey to a better life.
You may ask what inspired me to start drinking water. To be completely honest, I have to make myself drink water daily
Here is my simple formula. I am a visual. I have to create an experience for myself when it comes to my water intake process.
What does this mean? This means I purchased high-end fancy blinged-out custom insulated cups. Oddly I also prefer to drink it out of my fancy cups as well. Mentally I am telling myself ya girl is drinking in style.
Also, I have a goal of drinking a min of 64 ounces of water daily. I track this using my FlyBOSS Lifestyle Planner. Each week there are daily marks for me to mark this task as done
I usually pour 16.9oz bottles, which is only 4 bottles daily.
I have identified the many benefits of simply drinking water. On top of all of this, my family has a history of kidney failure. I lost my sister because of this illness.
My family experienced with this has made me fully aware of the road that I do not want to embark upon.
I whisper to myself daily just drink the water…..
