Welcome to Day 5 of the 7-Days of Healthy Habits

Today is all about hydration.

Increased hydration leads to decrease weight...and clearer skin.

Welcome to day 5 of the challenge!


Today, we’re addressing a common topic because I think it’s not easy to always remember to do – Drink enough water.


Does your morning typically start with a latte or cappuccino? Do you find yourself reaching for a Diet Coke to help you snap out of a mid-afternoon slump?


While sweet drinks may give you a temporary energy boost, they can also cause your energy levels to crash shortly after. The more sugar you consume, the more you crave it, leading to a never-ending roller coaster ride of sugar highs followed by crashes. The only way to break the cycle is to eliminate (or drastically reduce) your sugar consumption.


Try trading out sugar-laden or artificially-sweetened drinks for water, or unsweetened iced tea. This will help you stay hydrated without adding unnecessary calories. If you are really craving some flavor, try infused water. You can infuse your water with fruits or vegetables to improve the taste without sacrificing your health, and it’s super refreshing!


Here is a great post about 14 different ways you can infuse water to make it deeelish.
