Helllllloo everyone, and welcome to Wellness Wednesday!! Let me know what you all think of these theme days.. if it’s lame or interesting lol
So today I wanted to talk about the benefits of drinking water. One of my New Years resolutions was too drink 8 cups a day!! Before this year I barely had ANY water during the day, but like many of us would, I had about 2-3 cups of coffee a day- which to my surprise was just dehydrating me. my ignorance aside I had no idea that water was so important. Besides the fact we’re 70% water… it would MAKE SENSE that I need to drink water.. but why! It’s so boring to drink, flavour less, I just straight up didn’t like it.
But why did I always have head aches, dry lips, Stomach aches, bloating, exceptionally dry skin that would breakout constantly. I should add I also started taking apple cider vinager around this time because I heard it was good for weight loss ,clearing up skin, PH balance and all that other good stuff. – so to take apple cider vinager you have to make sure you’re drinking a lot of water for it to work so I decided that would be in my New Years resolutions of 2018. I would drink the recommend amount of water and just seee what happens.
This small conscious decision really made a drastic difference it only took a few days for me to notice differences. Nothing major at first but slowly but surly I was feeling less bloated, my skin cleared up, and I just felt better all together. My dry chapped lips became smooth. My stomach aches started to become less frequent. And my headaches went away. At first I thought oh this must just be the apple cigar vinegar, so I decided I wanted too stop taking the apple cidar vinegar, and just try the water too see what it really was. Here’s a link to the Apple Cidar Vinegar I use. I was told it’s always best to use the one with the “mother” – I usually pick it up at the local grocery store, but I found a link Apple Cider Vinegar . Also I put about 1/4 of a shot glass of apple cider vinegar, and the rest water and just shoot it back!! I must warn you this stuff is potent. Lol
Now I’m at the point that if I don’t have 8 glasses a day I really feel it. My body is now a custom to feeling better, which is fantastic! I always carry a water bottle around with me which makes it easier for me to remember Jess drink your water. If it’s always in hand I’m way more likely to drink it. For awhile I had a 1 litre bottle that I would draw on with a sharpie and write what time of day I wanted to be done that portion of the water by – found this idea on Pinterest. It’s amazing how something so small can make a difference in how I feel.
