Mindful Monday: Drink More Water

Something I really don’t do enough of us drinking water. The amount I am still nursing Sister-Bug should have me drinking more than I usually do. But I lose track during the business of each day, often slugging a quick glass at bedtime, in hopes of re-hydrating a little bit. This is not good for me.

I aim to change that.


Who: Me
What: Drink 2 quarts of water a day.
Why: For better health!
How: I started working on this last week, and I think I found a system that will help me track what enough water looks like. First thing in the morning, when I am thirsty anyway, I fill up two quart canning jars with my days water. If they are full I can sip at them all day without thinking about it. The two jars also show me how much I have been drinking and how much more I have to go. If I empty both, I fill up another and keep sipping.

Bottoms up!

  1. You can also get a head start. When I get up in the morning, first thing I do is down a pint of water. Really wakes me up!

  2. Ditto to antsaint.I've been doing that for years now and it helps with the rest of the days water intake.Also, I leave a quart jar full of water in a common place so each time I walk by it's there for me to slurp on.
