Our bodies need certain nutrients to perform basic functions. Nutritious foods that are full of vitamins, minerals, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, and fiber are age embracing foods that promote overall health and add to the beauty of our inner & outer Goddess.
But there is one often overlooked energy source.
Drinking water or rather drinking enough water and staying hydrated is the most often discounted first rule of health and nutrition. Our bodies can last three weeks without food but will typically last only three to four days without water.
Wow. If that doesn’t put it in perspective, think about it this way. Our bodies are made up of about 70% water. When we’re deprived of H20 it affects us physically, mentally and emotionally.
So how much water should you drink a day? Doctors, researchers and different studies have produced varying results over the years but ultimately it comes down to this: Your individual water needs depend on you. How active you are and the climate you live in are the two key factors that will help estimate if you can get by on eight glasses of water per day as your mother probably told you, or if you need to drink more, or less. Tap into your awareness and keep a water bottle handy.

Emotionally speaking, water soothes our soul. It renews us in spiritual ceremonies and helps us honor life’s transitions. Our glorious lakes and oceans also nourish us with a sense of calm and oneness. Drinking from the river’s edge, we can appreciate its complete essence. One can’t say “I’ll just drink the hydrogen and not the oxygen,” or it would no longer be water. Just as in life, there is not one without the other. We cannot choose to only have happiness without sorrow, each is a necessary component of being fully alive and whole.
Time to refresh your thirst for H2O nourishment. Cheers to you!
