I am aware of the importance of good hydration habits. Drinking plenty of water is essential to silky hair and smooth skin. It helps to build muscle, trim fat and resist injury. I struggle to drink sufficient water. I never developed the habit when I was growing up. My childhood home included a well on the property. The water was overrun with rust, discolored and didn’t smell very nice. It tasted awful. Now that I’m an adult, I forget to drink water. Even if I carry a water bottle around with me all day, I rarely sip from it. I have figured out one sure way to drink at least a small amount of water. I workout for 60 minutes every day. I play music during my workout and typically change up the style of exercise at the end of every song. I switch between jumping rope, abdominal crunches, lunges, squats, lifting weights and more. I make sure to take a big drink of water in-between the songs. I make it a point to drain my entire water bottle by the end of the workout. As I’ve gotten more accustomed to this practice, I often need to refill my water bottle. Being more conscientious about my hydration habits has reduced the number of headaches I suffer. I have less issues with muscle cramps, and I enjoy more energy during the day. Plus, I recover from a strenuous workout session much faster. I am trying to increase the amount of water I drink throughout the day. While I would rather reach for a cup of tea, soda or juice, I know that water is better for me. Plus, there’s no calories or sugar to worry about.
