Happy 2016! 4 years after the world was supposed to end (2012), we’re still alive and still trying to make sense of what and why we are here.
And every year, a part of the "what and why" results in a mantra of, “it’s time to get in shape, get my health back in line and then it’ll all be clear”. For most of us, it only lasts a couple months, at best. But they are a great couple months!
I’m guilty of it. Most of us are. For whatever reason, that heightened sense of well-being from our New Year’s resolution instigated clean diet and regular exercise fades into a “back of the stove” priority and the monkey-chatter of daily busy-ness takes precedent.
Yet, there is one simple every day enjoyable act that we can do, very easily, to ensure we are at least taking care of our body on a basic level.
Yes, going to the gym 4 times a week is definitely on the list. Yoga 3 times a week is on the list. Cutting back on the bad fats, bad carbs, the meat and the dairy is on the list. More quality time with your lover, on the list. Yet, ensuring that you are properly hydrating simply requires you to lift a glass to your lips and drink. Easy. But many of us forget to do it.
If you’re like me, I get bored with just drinking water throughout the day. I’m a fiend for BIG mugs (big soup bowls with handles) of our hot chocolate. When I’m in the office I probably drink about 1-2 liters of hot chocolate a day. Seriously. I get my water intake and I’m also getting lots of minerals and antioxidants with the sips. It’s actually quite filling too, so I find myself being satisfied with less food intake, but still highly energetic.
Another way I keep my palate happy and cells nourished is our Coco Hydro. I drink it when I’m exercising at the gym, on a bike ride in the hills outside of Ashland, Oregon and also while I’m sitting in my desk saddle, herding the hoards of emails.
It’s a great every day hydrator.
Our Coco Hydro is a super easy way to:
1) flavor your water intake and
2) get all your daily electrolytes, vitamin C and some trace minerals to boot.
Scoop, stir and sip. That’s it. Easy.
So why Coco Hydro? Well, here are some basic facts:
So, as we continue to move through 2016, let’s all keep ourselves to task and take one simple step to keep our bodies and minds in a healthy hydration state of being.
Happy New Year everyone and here’s to another successful rotation around the Sun!
