Thoughts, Tips, Ideas and Tricks to live your best life
A few months ago I wrote about drinking water for five minutes straight to see what would happen. I imagined it would be a positive habit to try on. I've been consistent with my idea and I like the benefit!
I simply set my timer, sit down and focus on drinking water for the entire 5 minutes. I do get a little full of water... But I have noticed that I feel more hydrated, if there was a tickle in my throat it goes away, and over the course of a week, I noticed my skin got better. I feel like I've even been sleeping better. In general I just feel better through out the day :) Yes I continue to drink water as I normally would through out the day too :) Personally I think there is more benefit to do this in the beginning of the day, but I'll do it at night as well.
I'd like to encourage you all to try it too. Or pick a new habit that you can do for 5 minutes or less. What would you pick? Always eat a fruit or vegetable before you eat anything else? Do 5 minutes or planks, sit ups and squats? Meditating? Just focus on your breathing and breath as deeply as you can for 5 minutes? This one I like to do in the car, since I'm just sitting there, lol.
E-mail me or comment below on a habit you love, picked up from someone else, or are trying out.
I'd love to see what works for you!
I'm very passionate about a lot of things, often trying to incorporate all of it into my life!
