“If your dry on the outside, then your dry on the inside”
Someone told me that a long time ago and it really suck out in my head, “Dry on the outside, dry on the INSIDE”
It made me start thinking…could there be something to that? Then I started noticing things about myself…that when I looked down at my skin and it was dryer than I wanted it to be, I had not drank enough water that day. Sometimes I didn’t remember drinking water at all some days…oops.
Did you know that you are supposed to drink at least 2 liters of liquids, preferably water, a day? How much is that and how can you drink that much water?
Some tricks I use:
- Drink a big glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning. Maybe even add some lemon or apple cider vinegar for extra detoxing.
- Carry a water bottle with you, if you have it with you its hard to say ‘out of sight, out of mind’. A glass water bottle is best for your health and the plant (see blog)
- Drink a large glass before dinner, it might even make you eat less dinner thus get fewer calories right before bed.
These are some helpful hints to keep you hydrated and looking good.
Did you know the skin a good mirror of the health on the inside our bodies…if your skin looks healthy and vibrant then your insides probably look good. But if your skin is dull in color, dry, wrinkly, not soft, smooth and full of life then your insides probably look the same.
Your gut health is responsible for your overall health. We take our guts for granted as humans and throw whatever we want at it, whatever tastes good at the moment. But are we just satisfying our tongues and not actually fueling our bodies? What is that soda doing for your health?
This is one thing I focus on when working with clients is to fix their relationship to food. Food and water are things that should be enjoyed with love, not hated or resented. Most importantly food should be eaten for a reason, to nourish and help heal the body and not just to subside that hunger feeling. Water should be drank to keep us hydrated and help the body rid itself of toxins.
🙂 as the quote says “stay thirsty my friends”…and drink more water.
