Self Care Sunday: Hydration

I don’t know about you, but I am really bad about taking care of myself. I’m a nanny and a wife and I tend to care for others constantly and never really put myself first. I want to work on that, work on self care more often; therefore, I decided that I would love to do a self care Sunday blog post to share what I’m adding to my self care on a weekly basis. For this blog post, I will be focusing on hydrating. I know I need to drink about half my weight in oz of water and I well I suck at doing that. I am better about drinking more water than I use too, however, I still need to be drinking more.

About 60% of our bodies are made up of water and so I want to share 10 benefits of drinking water with you:

  1. Gives you more energy.
  2. Helps you sleep better.
  3. Clears up skin.
  4. Aids in weight loss.
  5. Flushes body waste.
  6. Improves brain function.
  7. Fewer headaches.
  8. Helps digestion.
  9. Fights bloating.
  10. Maintains the balance of body fluids.

I will be challenging myself to drink AT LEAST a gallon of water a day but will try to aim for at least 145 oz of water. I would love for some of you to join me in drinking a gallon of water for a week and hopefully keep it going after that as well.
