A Healthier Me – Water

A Healthier me...drinking water a delightsome life

A cool glass of water – at times there’s nothing better. The moment the water passes your lips, reaches your throat and flows into your body – you begin to feel hydrated.

You know you’ve just done something very good for you.

Water is most essential to every part of our bodies. Our blood is approximately 90 percent water, our brain and muscle contains seventy-five percent water, our bones contain 22 percent water and even fat contains 20 percent water. Water is essential to our bodies; water is essential to our health.

We need water as much as we need the air we breathe

As necessary as water is to our bodies we need to make a conscious effort to drink water. We need to be selective too about the water we drink. Most municipal waters are o.k. – but some can contain too many minerals and chemicals that do more harm than good. Our bodies lose more water each day than we realize. I’ve read that we potentially lose up to 10 or more cups of water a day. The recommended eight glasses of water would then still fall short of our daily needs.

How to Incorporate More Water into our daily lives

drinking water-4

  • begin each day with a glass of water

  • drink water throughout the day 

  • infuse your water with herbs and fruits

  • eat more fresh foods

  • drink water thirty minutes before each meal

  • finish each day with a glass of water

  • eat more soups

Infused Waters


I love it when we’re out traveling and I see a large water container filled with chilled fruit infused water. This has become so popular and now so accessible. you can find water bottles with infusers, infusers to set in mason jars and pitchers fitted with infusers. 

What can one add to water:

  • lemons

  • limes

  • pineapple

  • apple

  • orange

  • cucumber

  • strawberries

  • mango

  • blueberries

  • raspberries

  • pears

  • peach

  • honeydew

  • mint

  • ginger

  • grapefruit

Mix any combination of these fruits for a wide variety of delicious infused waters. 

Sometimes, water is enough as it is.

There’s nothing better, after working hard in the garden than a large glass of chilled water. Sometimes, too, when we think we’re hungry we are actually thirsty. Drinking water before the meal helps us to curb our appetites and to fulfill our daily need for water.

Make it a Habit

Reach for water when you’re thirsty. Reach for water more often in the day – you’ll feel much better and look better – bonus!
