Drink More Water + September to Remember Giveaway Hop

I am so excited to be a part of the 5th Annual September to Remember giveaway hop. I mus thank our hosts NAMES HERE for putting this hop together. While at the end there is an amazing giveaway for y’all to take part in I wanted to share with you the importance of drinking water.

I know that I don’t drink enough water on any given day. When I am working out I drink a bottle or two sometimes. Some days I don’t want any. At night though I always drink a full bottle. I have one of those stainless steel reusable bottles that I keep by my bed. I always finish it before the night is over. Just why is drinking more water important?

Water lubricates the joints

I didn’t know that water helps lubricate joints. Cartilage which is found in your joints and spine is made up of eighty percent water. Long-term dehydration can cause problems with this and thus drinking water is important.

 Skin Health and Beauty

We all know that drinking more water can help your skin look better. It helps with acne and all sorts of other skin and beauty issues. Healthy looking skin will also help your makeup go on much smoother.

 You Need It For Digestion

Water helps break down food and aids in digestion. Again long-term dehydration can cause all sorts of problems with this. Water also helps you getting rid of waste (to put things politely.) That is why whenever my mother complains about not being able to go I tell her to drink a big glass of water and see if that helps.

Those are just a few of the reasons to drink more water. Now, if I could just make myself do it. I know I can add a flavoring or something and make it taste better. I just don’t want to do that because I want to enjoy water the natural way. Like I said there are plenty of times that I drink just plain water. I need to get into a better habit of drinking while I am sitting at my desk working.

HELLO!

HELLO!

Welcome to God, Fitness, & Mental Illness. I struggled with mental illness, fitness, and faith most of my life. Not having a "voice" or outlet made it all the more difficult. Then in 2020 I decided to be somewhat anonymous and start GFMI about it all. It was so freeing because it allows me to share all the ugliness and inspire others.

    In order to drink enough water, I leave a jug full on the counter, and make sure I drink the whole thing by evening. Any more that I drink is really a bonus.

    This is such an important reminder. I used to be very good about staying hydrated but lately I’ve been drinking too much diet cola. I noticed the lethargy, dullness in my skin and I’ve developed terrible heartburn. I definitely need to get back on track with water. I used to love infusing my own water with cucumber, grapefruit and ginger mixes. I needed this boost to get myself i gear!

    I’ve been drinking quite a bit of water this past summer – no air conditioning and many 100 degree days. It makes a real difference in how I feel, sweltering hot outside or not!

    One act of kindness I have been wanting to make something for each of my nieces and nephews. I’ve been surprised how my siblings have brought up how much they like things I’ve made for them many, many years ago, that I had even forgotten about. I keep taking it for granted, that homemade things for me is mostly b/c of my budget, saving money by making, but when you make cute things for someone else, it is special to them. I’ve made things for some of my nieces and nephews, but not all, quite a few, and I ended up flat out with unexpected things to do this entire year that I haven’t been able to. It might not seem like a good deed, but I have made many things for homeless women and teens who go to the library, children in the hospitals,, mothers and babies in Haiti, troubled kids from church, et.
