Welcome back as the New Year has begun I would like to take a moment and thank all of those who have been here reading my content and leaving comments. Thank you very much I appreciate each and every one of you.
So lets kick of this year by firstly thanking ourselves 🙂 yes you read that corectly , I want you to thank yourself go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back and tell yourself you believi in you and you care about you because if you didn’t you would not have successful survived 2013 .
Why do I say that well because for millions around the globe 2013 did prove to be quite a challenging year on all fronts for the world. Financially economically and even the weather threw an extreme challenge up in many countries and many people lost life, limb, home and property.
So that is why I want you to pat yourself on the back and believe in you because you are here in the New Year and you have another shot at your destiny no matter how bad you are feeling. Remember every one has the potential inside of themselves to be as great as they believe they can but it all starts with you, so this year I will spend a lot of time talking about mindset as this is very crucial to your level of physical health and yes don’t worry I will be throwing in the occasional health tip along the way.
So let us all work together as a community and ensure that no one feels like they are alone during their journey towards a healthy body and mind.
I will finish this post with a quote I came across in 2013 that helped me in times of lack luster and non motivation ” The mind is like a parachute – it only works when it is open” by Frank Zappa
So my health tip to start you of for the year is this… The human body is made of a lot of water. Water is so vital for all our cells and organs to function at optimum levels and it is also vital for the longevity and youthful appearance of your skin hair and muscles. We do not drink near enough water on a daily basis and often we are running our body on half a tank or dehydration levels and by doing this our blood is dirty with the toxins that our liver and kidneys cannot dispose of properly as the water level is to shallow.
Constant low water levels are also responsible for the wrinkles appearing hair loss and sagging skin and muscle tone. So do yourself and your body a favour and make this tip a habitual one and your mind and body will thank you in the process
You must drink at least 3 litres of water over a 24 hour period and make at least 500 MLS of this water to be consumed at least 1 hour prior to bed time. Preferably try to consume good clean purified water that is not to cold as if it is to cold you will put a strain on your inner core body temperature regulator. If you don,t have access to purfied water free from fluoride and chlorine in the town supply then you will need to just go with your town tap supply, but the better the quality of water the better the effect.
Now if you are not use to drinking 3 litres of water a day you will find this quite a challenge but keep reminding yourself and keep at it until you have formed the habit of reaching for water without a second thought.
Once you have formed the habit of drinking 3 litres of water a day you will over time start to notice changes in your appearance, your skin will look younger and you will take on a better colour in your skin tone. You will not be as hungry and your energy and mental state will increase. You will be thankful you did this as you will notice a decrease in digestive problems as well.
So the tip : make drinking 3 litres of clean water a habit even when it is so cold outside the car is snowed in drink 3 litres 🙂
Until next time have a super fine day and be the best that you can be
