Water Wednesday – Be Proactive!

Be proactive!

Do you know how much easier life can be when you get into the healthier habits that help you be your best self?

Like, for example, I’ve been a great hydrater for about 10 years now, which is of course a habit that will greatly help my pregnancy.

No, I did not always drink as much water as I do now, and to be honest, I didn’t always love plain water. But I started, and I built up to where I needed to be.

I let myself FEEL how staying hydrated was helping me in so many ways.

So now, in my pregnancy, where my water intake is crucial because it not only helps ME but my growing baby, it is much easier to be able to reach the target amount.

Being proactive in a calm manner is a lot easier than feeling the need to react in a panicky manner!

Water Wednesday

Our bodies are largely composed of water, and winter is especially prime time to be replenishing that water, because the dry winter air (and our heating sources!) can lead to winter dehydration, and since we aren’t sweating, we often don’t notice we feel dehydrated!

It’s just as important, if not more important, to stay hydrated in the winter, for a multitude of reasons.

I’m pretty good with getting my water in, but I do love that every Wednesday in my challenge group, we make it a focus to hydrate and award points for doing so – I love that so many of our challengers say it helps hold them accountable to hydrate!

Do you drink enough water? Do you know how much is recommended?
