Foundational Habit# 3: Drink More Water
Lesson 3 Module 1
3 Easy Steps To Stay Hydrated!
We know that we need water to survive and thrive but why is it so hard? In this lesson I want to talk about three ways on how you can start drinking more water right now.
Step 1: Start by drinking a glass of water as soon as you get up by having it on your bedside table. The easiest way to attain this is by bringing a glass of water to bed and drinking it as soon as you wake up.
Why is this important? Because it gets your body into a good state by flushing out toxins and kickstarting your internal organs. Did you know? People who drank half a liter of water before each meal lost more weight than those who didn’t drink water before eating.
Step 2: Carry a water jug with you all day with a straw. This will share with you how much you are actually drinking and can challenge yourself to finish it by the time you go to bed!
Step 3: Flavour your water! One of my favourite tools of all time is using a citrus squeezer! This has made my routines so much easier using this tool and the best part is that you do not have to worry about seeds!
One of my favourite blends was at St. Anne’s Spa in Grafton!!
Strawberry, Basil and Lemon:
Makes 4 servings
5 cups of water
½ cup of strawberries stemmed and sliced (Fresh or frozen)
5 large fresh basil leaves
1 lemon thinly sliced
Infused water is best 2 to 4 hours after you’ve made it. Or, you can let it infuse overnight in the refrigerator.

This graphic is to remind you to drink more water. So put it on your fridge because you're hungry, it might be that you're actually thirsty!
Remember: Drinking Water Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids, Digestion, Absorption, Circulation, Creation of Saliva, Transportation of Nutrients, and Maintenance of body temperature. Pretty much the circle of life!
