1 Week 1 Goal: Drink Water
Studies show that about 75% of the population is seriously dehydrated! So why is this a bad thing? Well dehydration can cause numerous problems including decrease in memory, body temp, metabolism, blood pressure and so much more! Our bodies need to have water! It is essential, however many people tend to forget the importance and they stick to flavored sugary drinks instead!
With this challenge, you agree that for 1 week you will try your best to drink half your body weight in ounces of water…or more! :) So here’s the plan:
- Buy a water bottle! If you already have one, great! Reusable ones are super convince and great for the environment!
- Try drinking out of a straw! I know this sounds strange, but personally…I drink way more water when it’s through a straw!
- Flavor your water naturally! Throw in some fresh fruit and let it sit in the fridge for a while and before you know it it…you’ll have natural flavored water! No need for artificial flavorings or food dyes! :)
- Remind Yourself! Write a little sign on your hand that keeps you reminded, that way when you see it…you remember to drink up! Maybe a water droplet, a wave, the letters H2O…anything! Do something that keeps you reminded, because sometimes we forget! *Post a picture of what symbol you’ll be using to remind you!
So try it out! For just 1 week, focus on fueling your body with enough H2O! You’ll start to see the benefits and you’ll create a habit for yourself!
So make the pact! For just 1 week! …and then make it a habit! :)
