Here are three things you can do that don't require a trip to the grocery store or gym and still WIN the day.
Any day that we get close to the recommended half our body weight in ounces, it's a win!! So, if you weigh 150 pounds, shoot for 75 ounces.
Hydrating is essential care for skin, kidneys, digestion, our nervous system, and so much more, but so few of us actually do it. Why? Water is boring.
So, what can we do:
Sparkling: My favorite is Gerolsteiner.
Spike it: Add some lemon juice or a wedge of orange (fresh squeezed - not those plastic lemon things).
Herbs: Add a sprig of fresh thyme or rosemary.
Heat it up: Try drinking water at "tea heat" no tea needed. This is especially great for cleansing our bowls and lymphatic system. (sorry, tea and coffee count against hydration not toward it)
2.) Does COZY = food?
So many of equate down time/"us time"/cozy time/snow day time with EATING.
What else can we use here?
Wrap up in blankets
Light some candles
Sip on hot tea
Take a hot bath
Give yourself a foot rub
Jump into a project. Tidying up, anyone?
3.) Plate EVERYTHING you eat.
It's so easy to lie on the couch, eat straight out of the box/bag, and totally lose track of how much we're eating and WHY (see #2).
One of the best mindful eating hacks around is to simply put everything on a plate first.
One pretzel, a scoop of peanut butter, whatever it is, if it's not on a plate, don't eat it.
If you feel too lazy to put it on a plate or don't want to get a plate dirty, then chances are you either aren't really hungry or whatever it is isn't really worth it.
Sometimes the best techniques are the simplest ones :)
