Aligning and connecting with your body is so important for overall health vitality, bliss and abundance. So much of this relationship begins within and making sure you fuel your body with everything it needs. Our body is made of up of about 60% water so above all, remaining hydrated is our #1 health goal in life.
In January, I challenged myself and took on Flow’s 30 Day Alkaline Challenge where I drank up to 3L of Flow Naturally Alkaline Spring Water erry’ day! Flow made it so easy to enjoy more water throughout my day. They have fun flavors and are 100% recyclable, making me feel even better about sipping on them! My favorite was the lemon + ginger flavor, very refreshing.
Breastfeeding is SO dehydrating and at 7 months, Noa and I are still beautifully in this flow. It’s said that producing breast milk takes approximately 25% of the body’s energy. It makes so much sense that it makes you thirsty! I always drink a LARGE glass of water whenever I breastfeed. Rather than making dramatic changes and trying to control this aspect of our relationship I’ve decided to make a simple change for myself by taking on #TheFlow30 and support my body in staying well-hydrated! Staying hydrated when you breastfeed provides natural minerals and electrolytes for not only your body but also your little one's daily meals.
Throughout the challenge, I noticed changes in how I breathe and move every day. I felt lighter, abundant and had more vibrant energy. I noticed a major shift in my skin, which is usually the first sign of dehydration.
Some of the other major benefits I noticed are -
- A major shift in positive, increased energy (so needed for long work days)
- An increased sense of focus
- Better digestion
- Stronger immunity (this is an absolute MUST during the cold season)
- Glowing, soft skin
- A deeper and more restful sleep
Challenging yourself to up your water intake and add more superfoods into your diet are very simple changes you can make right now! They don’t require you to dramatically change or modify your routine. It’s about supporting the journey + transformation you’re already on by making it easier!
The second you wake up grab a Flow water and drink it as you ease into your morning routine. Warm water with lemon is great for digestion while a cold glass of water can wake you up.
