Healthy Tip Of the Day: Get that H20

These days, none of us seem to be getting enough water. The other day, my sister taught swim lessons, then had to lifeguard all day in the treacherous sun, with little to no water in her system at all! 

This could be detrimental to our overall health and digestive system. It's not just a lack of food that can cause these terrible side effects, like indigestion, bloating and headaches. (Yuck!)

My advice for you is to guzzle down a large glass of of water or bottle of water upon waking up, first thing in the morning. Make it a habit so that when you wake up, your body and mind know to go for the H20 stat. Then, a rule to go by the rest of the day is a glass of water with each meal, as well as several throughout the day to keep you replenished. Trust me: you'll feel much better and your body will thank you later.
