31 Days of Wellbeing: Day 18

Day 18 of 31 Days of Wellbeing

We are going for a physical one today…well I say physical, but actually this will really support your mental wellbeing too.

Drinking water is like washing out your insides. The water will cleanse the system, fill you up, decrease your caloric load and improve the function of all your tissues. Kevin R. StoneRead more at_.png

All I ask of you today is that you drink…although the following quote from NHS is from 2011, it still stands:

NHS Choices’ page on Water and drinks says: Your body needs water or other fluids to work properly and to avoid dehydration. That’s why it’s important to drink enough fluids. In climates such as the UK’s, we should drink about 1.2 litres (six to eight glasses) of fluid every day to stop us getting dehydrated. (13 Jul 2011)

Please spend today avoiding all those sugary drinks. Stay away from diet versions as well which are laden with additives. If you don’t like drinking plain water, try flavouring it with lemon, orange, lime, cucumber etc. At the worst, have a little squash to give it some flavour. Tea and coffee – limit yourself to one cup today. Replace it with water and I promise it is increasing your physical and mental wellbeing…
