31-Day Wellness Challenge… Are you in?
I’ve accepted a 31-day blogging challenge. Whoop, whoop!!
I’m asking that you take the journey with me. I will post a wellness tip every day. My promise… If you take the time to read the daily wellness tip and implement at least 30% (or 10) of the tips you will significantly impact your wellness.
Imagine this… in 30 days you could have more energy, feel lighter, minimize body aches, release a few unwanted pounds, and feel healthier and younger.
Are you in? Set your intention now. How many tips are you willing to implement? Yes, 31 possibilities. I will make the tips easy and straight forward.
It’s DAY ONE – let’s get started:
Stay hydrated! A bit obvious with our 110+ degree heat in Vegas.
Water is essential to your wellness. Similar to oxygen, your body requires water to sustain life. Unlike oxygen you must choose to drink water.
How much do you need? According to the Mayo Clinic the Institute of Medicine recommends women get 2.2 liters (or nine 8-ounce servings) per day and men require 3 liters (or 13 8-ounce servings) per day. Experts recommend more water if you live in a hot climate or if you exercise regularly, so consider the recommendation a minimum goal and be sure to surpass it each day.
Your body is approximately 60% water. Your organs require water. Water supports the digestive process ensuring you are flushing out toxins. It also carries vital nutrients to your organs and cells. Water supports weight loss efforts by boosting your metabolism.
Water also impacts your energy and overall feeling of wellness.
Water is not optional. Insufficient water can significantly impact your health. Without the appropriate amount of water your body must work harder to complete normal functions, leaving you feeling tired and sluggish. Severe dehydrated can have serious consequences.
Give water a try. I realize that some of you don’t necessarily like water. So make it more interesting, add a squeeze of lemon or lime, how about cucumber or a few berries? If that’s not sufficient, add a splash of 100% juice or try sparkling water.
Get started immediately by adding several ounces of water each day until you get to the minimum recommendation. Once you get to your goal give it one week. You will feel the results!
