The following is a Public Service Announcement to myself:
Why is this such a hard concept?
There are two methods in which I fail at drinking water.
- Put water in a glass.
- Put glass down somewhere.
- Days later, find cloudy glass of water with cat hair floating on top. Wash glass.
- Put new water in glass. (repeat 2-4)
- Put water in a water bottle.
- Put water bottle in bag.
- Days later, find musty bottle of water. Wash it.
- Refill water bottle. (repeat 2-4)
The actual act of ingesting water is apparently very difficult for me.
I do not have this problem with food. Or chocolate. Or wine.
Do I fill a bowl with ice cream and then put it down and forget about it? No, I do not.
I remember learning that 50% of my body is made up of water. So I should probably top it off occasionally.
Do you know what happens when I do manage to drink water on a regular basis? I look younger. I feel better. I have more energy. I’m healthier. The clouds part and the sun comes out and the universe is wonderful. Most of my problems can be solved by drinking water.
And water is free.
So why is this so hard to do?
I’m sure some of you drink water regularly. You even excel in that area of your life. In which case you are probably setting goals for showers or sleep or exercise or fresh vegetables. Right?
You could just go ahead and tell me your New Year’s Resolution. You already know what mine is. Except that I don’t actually make them. But let’s pretend I do make them. For conversational purposes.
OOPS. This post was supposed to go up the first week of January. I wrote it in early December. Then I forgot to publish it. Although late, you now know the backstory of the water bottle, which I hesitate to even mention now since there are at least four people worrying that every single one of my posts from here on out will be in the “buy my crap” vein. Don’t worry, sometimes I’ll say “buy my stuff” instead. But seriously, thanks for all your support and nice words and feedback about the launch.
