Drink 8-10 Glasses of H20 ( Water ) Each Day
Water helps transport vital nutrients, regulates body temperature, eases digestion, keeps joints supple, cleans out your body, keeps skin healthy and young. Not drinking enough leads to dehydration, resulting in headaches, fatigue, dizziness, constipation, and foggy memory.
So drink plenty of fluids and the mind will be sharp, focused and accurate like a precision time piece.
Not drinking enough water can lead also to excess water weight, because our bodies will store water outside our cells. That’s where you feel bloated, overweight and heavy. Water helps the liver do its job more efficiently, namely in metabolizing fat efficiently.
If you’re not consuming enough water, your liver has to work overtime with its other primary function: detoxifying the body so drinking sufficient fluid is a no brainer really.
Water helps maximizes the liver’s efficiency of both jobs, so you keep your insides clean, your weight healthy, and get rid of unwanted excess fat.

That doesn’t mean you have to “lie down and play dead.” What can you do better to make your life MORE perfect? Know that you can create your dreams, no matter how difficult life can be at times.
Feel the Fear, Do it Anyway
Helen Keller once said,
Life is either a series of adventures, or it is nothing.
We all have this shield of armor that protects us from some aspect of life. This shield is your comfort zone.
And that comfort zone is a haven for disintegration. When you take off this armor, the only thing you’re risking is GROWTH, a wonderful life, high energy, and a leaner body.
