Find Out THIS Year What Good Health Tastes Like

Uncategorized Jan 29, 2020

Happy New Year!  Well, relatively new year.

I’m sorry.  I know I dropped the ball.  And not the “New York's Times Square-on-New Year’s Eve” ball either.  More like the “write-a-blog-for-my-favourite-peeps” kind of ball.

My excuse is that I have been writing a book.  Evidently, I’m not so good at multi-tasking.

The good news is that “the book” is close to being published.  This spring, fingers crossed.  (But you may need to be patient—spring doesn’t come that early in Northern Saskatchewan.)

The other piece of good news is that we still have 336 days remaining this year to work on our health!

We have 336 days to nurture our bodies and spirits.

We have 336 days to take the steps we need to create for ourselves the health we desire.

What new health habits are you wanting to establish this year?

If you’re not sure where to begin, I always say: Begin with water.

Drink water.  Drink lots of water.  Drink lots of pure, clean water.

Why?  Because water is wonderful!

Consider these 5 benefits:

1.Water improves brain function.  A mere 2% dehydration can reduce cognitive function by up to 30%.  (Isn't that something to think about?)

2. Water assists in weight loss efforts. Water can act as an appetite suppressant and assist in breaking down and reducing fat deposits.  Even mild dehydration can slow down metabolism.

3.Water contributes to the breakdown and absorption of nutrients. This means that in order to get maximum mileage out of the food that fuels your body, you need adequate water.

4. Water supports detoxification. Water assists in eliminating waste materials from your body, speeds up bowel transit time, and maintains a healthy lymphatic system. Together, they help to create an internal environment free of carcinogens and other toxins—an internal environment that supports health.

5. Water prevents cancer development.  Adequate hydration in the form of water can decrease your risk of colon cancer by 45%, bladder cancer by 51%, and breast cancer by up to 64%, according to recent research. (More details on that in my new upcoming book.)

 

How Much Water Should You Drink?

It depends.  Physical activity, weight, gender, toxin burden, and environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity all have a role to play.

All I can say is: Be generous with your water consumption.

And use the “two Ps of pee” as your guide—“pale” and “plenty”!

This year is still new.  Embracing new health habits now can lead to new and better health.  This year see how sweet good health can taste!

I’m cheering you on!
