HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WATER DAY!!!!!
With this day we honor the incredibly importance water has in our health and everyday life. Immensely important. It’s absolutely vital in order for our cells to thrive. Writing this article really opened my eyes to how to properly hydrate your body. Not sure how many of you can relate but I am often very dehydrated, super chapped lips, little bit of face acne and I carry some extra weight. So I do what everyone suggest and “drink more water” – but this was never resulted in my body turning into a magic hydrated fountain!
So the question is why?
The answer is actually very simple – I only drink pure filtered water and I learned that sometimes the body doesn’t exactly know how to handle the pure water. The water enters our bodies and go right back out, 10+ bathrooms trips a day sound familiar to anyone? But our cells are missing our on the hydration it needs.
The solution? Add a pinch of pink Himalayan salt into every glass of water before drinking it. When water has a bit of Himalayan salt in it, the body senses the minerals it contains and it absorbs them – along with the water – right into its cells. Allowing the water to be fully absorbed into the body. So if you been struggling to feel hydrated after drinking water try adding a pinch of pink salt and see if it makes a difference.
Below are some other ways to consume water and make it fun!
- Detox water
Adding fruits and vegetables (such as cucumbers, lemons, oranges, strawberries, mint) in your water doesn’t only make your drink tastier, but also aids in flushing out toxins.
- Coconut Water
Not only does this beverage hydrate you, but it also contains tons of antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, Vitamins and minerals. This low calorie drink is a great alternative to ordinary water.
There are endless options of teas you can buy at any grocery store. Teas are a great way to add some taste in your water, while many have their own beneficial properties. Green tea as an example will help speed up your metabolism, while chamomile will help you sleep better.
- Pure Filter Water
When it comes to drinking water nothing beats a pure glass of water. Adding fun things to your water is great but do your body a favor and add at least 1 pure glass of water to your every day routine.
