Sprinkles - Drinking Water for Hydration

Last Update: July 04, 2020

Dear friends here at Wealthy Affiliate,

With the advent of the hot summer months upon us or some of us ... it's vital to remember to keep well in sprinkles ... our plants, grass, trees, and yes, even us!

Most of us seem to forget about drinking water throughout the day.

Did you know that if you ever experience a sense of lightheadedness or what may be commonly termed as a 'headache' can be caused by dehydration?

Well, that's just one of the signs.

It is best to try alleviating it with simply two glasses of fresh, pristine drinking water first.

Most of the time, the 'headache' will dissipate on its own after having the water.

With a clear, strong mind, we can then, do our best work in creating quality content for our blogs.

We're also talking about this, because, Ambassador or General Jeff, posted about the hot weather he has been experiencing recently and 'forgetting' to drink water for hydration.

Water is essential for life.

We all know this.

Here's a wonderful extract on self-care and what it signifies by writer, Parker Palmer.

“Self-care is never a selfish act - it is simply good stewardship of the
only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others. Anytime
we can listen to true self and give the care it requires, we do it not
only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.”

----Parker Palmer----Author, Let Your Life Speak.

What I find helpful is to have a thermos handy with me if I'm out and about during the day ... I picked up this habit during my Master Gardening days when I'd be making presentations and conducting clinics. The work was just too interesting and the day would zip right by so I got in the habit of packing a thermos plus protein snacks along with me.

It's a good self-care and self-reliant practice.

It's truly worth the few minutes it takes to organize it the night before.

I found the mornings too jam packed in getting ready so that I'd be out the door on time.

Well, all to say, please remember to drink your 8 - 10 glasses each day to keep well-hydrated as part of your self-care plan.

Especially even more so these days of the big 'C.'

Enjoy your water with a touch of citrus! ....mmmm-mmmm so good!

Keep well, dear friends -- you're all precious! .... and stay strong!

Thanks kindly for reading this post ... and happy 4th!

A timely reminder Keisha, thank you.

Water is an absolute must if we want to operate at full capacity throughout the day.

On average, we're made up of about 60% water, so it makes sense to keep replenishing. It also aids in flushing out those miserable toxins and can help with weightloss.
I manage about eight pints a day.

Interestingly, adding 'citrus' helps to create a more balanced pH level within the stomach, which is always a good thing.
Have a wonderful day.
