I have a myriad of priorities every single day – work, family and most importantly…self-care. If you’ve been reading my blog for at least the past six months, then you know how much I value this sacred practice. And let’s be real – the more you focus on your own wellbeing, the better wife, mother, colleague, etc. you will be.
Unfortunately, I think a lot of women really struggle with this. The guilt. So much guilt. Well it needs to stop. Because you’re amazing and deserve to put yourself as a priority.
And two of my favorite self-care practices – sleep and hydration. I honestly sleep an average of eight hours per night and I don’t even feel bad about it. I’m not up late checking my email, I don’t set my alarm for the break of dawn…and I love it. Sure I could really use that extra time to work (couldn’t we all?), but feeling tired is the WORST. And will zap my creative juices in an instant. So I sleep.
And now for the good stuff – today’s topic. Water. I aim to drink at least 60-80 ounces of water every single day. And my secret – the Zak Designs HydraTrak water bottle AND WMNutrition flavor packets which also have a major health component.
First I’ll cover the details on this water bottle! The Zak Designs HydraTrak Tumbler is the BEST when you’re trying to keep track of your water intake. It has 8 bands that you move up, one by one, each time you drink 20oz. I also love that it’s clear, so you can actually see how much you have left to drink. And the straw! I drink so much faster with a straw – you can also buy the tumbler without this feature, but this is my personal preference.
Now my other secret tip…WMNutrition! They offer a comprehensive weight loss and nutrition line available in single-serve packets, easy for on the go (or travel!) and add a little flavor to water (hence, making you drink more).
I’ve been obsessed with their PreWorkout which, when taken 15 minutes prior to a workout, focuses on muscle enhancement, endurance, boosting energy, and an increased metabolic rate. It comes in Berry, Green Apple, Sour Strawberry or a Variety Pack.
Another fave is the WMNutrition AdvantraSlim Appetite Control (available with or without caffeine). It helps curb cravings for up to 4 hours, while regulating your mood and boosting energy. It’s availalbe in Berry, Citrus, Fruit or a Party Pack. And they actually just released Hot Chocolate which I’m dying to try!
