When fascinated with methods to enhance your day-to-day, it’s seemingly there are an inevitable few that may at all times come to thoughts. I imply, how many people wish to eat higher, train extra, and drink extra water? Even these of us with the healthiest of diets (I think) will at all times say these items.

Of all, there’s nonetheless this main highway block for me in terms of one thing as useless easy consuming water. What’s it? I actually couldn’t let you know, aside from I wrestle with getting down even the minimal quantity that I ought to. It is likely to be I’m so used to feeling thirsty that I’m actually simply not bothered anymore, and most of it I chalk as much as behavior…..and outdated habits appear to die more durable the older (and more durable) we get. Oy.

The reply? I’m means forward of you.

Identical to train and getting match, we’ve acquired to stroll earlier than we will run, so what am I doing? Beginning small. Actually. What number of of you have massive glass mason jars you tote round the home which might be normally stuffed with unconsumed water? Properly in case you are something like me, you fill it up with each intention of chugging it, solely to seek out that mass of contemporary liquid to be simply too overwhelming — it sits there prefer it’s mocking you and nonetheless, you go thirsty. So I’m over it, I’m achieved – no extra mason jars for me. I’m headed again to (gasp!), cups & glasses and the perfect half? They go down straightforward and make you’re feeling good. Small efforts achieved usually are at all times higher than massive efforts achieved not often. That’s my little trick of the week, so don’t keep thirsty, simply begin small! Clear water is a present, so drink up.


Right here’s a tasty salad that’s an ode to the season: roasted native potatoes (take it from me: purchase German Butter potatoes, they’re value each cent) with backyard kale, veggies & that Glory Bowl dressing that makes every part style foolish good. Preserve it easy, and hold it small. Change occurs in increments, so don’t attempt to do it all of sudden.

Have a beautiful week everybody 🙂
