You Know You Aren't Drinking Enough Water
Drink an extra glass of water today. We all know how important water is for our health. Why is it so easy to go a whole day and not drink water?! We can figure that out another day, for now, get to your sink, your Brita filter, your water bottle stash, or the nearest water fountain and starting drinking!

...Did you do it?

Good...

Depending on your diet and how much water you consume through food, an ideal amount of water to drink every day is about ½ your weight in ounces. So if you weigh 200 lbs, you should drink 100 ounces of water per day. If you have a 12 ounce water bottle, you’d drink about 8 bottles per day. If you’re already drinking this much water, than this challenge isn’t for you (it’s possible to drink too much water). If you’re like most of us and you aren’t drinking much water at all, but you feel up for a challenge, calculate your ideal water intake and go for it! At the very least, you’re still supporting your health if you consume one extra glass of water today than you usually do. There are free apps for you device that can help you track your water intake or if you’re fairly stationary for the better part of the day, you can do it the old fashion way. Don't forget to comment below! I want to know -

  • What's your biggest challenge to consistency with drinking water?

Many of us spend years of our lives living with an all-or-nothing mentality, especially when it comes to taking care of our health and overall wellbeing. We’re either perfectly following all our health and wellness routines and feeling on top of the world or we’re not supporting our health and wellness at all, leaving ourselves feeling guilty, ashamed, and unfulfilled. Life isn’t black and white, so trying to live on an all-or-nothing roller coaster isn’t sustainable. The ReNu Challenge is a monthly reminder from Jillian, NuSpecies Executive Vice President, that everyday is a new opportunity to pursue and cultivate health, good character, and positive relationships. Nothing has a permanent state; life requires us to constantly renew, regenerate, and evolve. This challenge helps you to embrace that. Although we’re all at different places in our journey, each month the challenge is to keep moving forward.
