Water - 8 a day

Eight glasses of water is the minimum, not optional. To insure them I drink 2 at each of 3 meals and 2 with pills at bedtime. That makes 8. Anything else I drink during the day is "gravy."

deciding if your hungry

When I 'feel' hungry, I drink a glass of water. This gives me time to sort out if it is physical hunger or emotional hunger. It also helps me get enough water for the day.

Look beyond unintentional insults

Look beyond the unintentional insult and realize this is a moment to 'educate' them quietly and politely using a smile on your face. Often times they don't realize they have insulted you because this is their first experience. You're setting the stage for their next encounter so make this positive

Drinking enough Water

I found a really cool water bottle that I like to carry with me. I love it, so I don't forget it. It fits easily in the drinking fountain, so is easy to refill. By starting to carry this, I've increase my water consumption significantly, and I'm hardly ever thirsty anymore.

Water!

Instead of worrying about refilling a smaller water bottle multiple times in the day, keep a 1 liter bottle of water at your desk. It is small enough to carry, but large enough that you only need to fill it once more to get those 8 glasses!

Garden Herbs right on the deck

Growing herbs in containers on the deck/porch will enhance the aroma of the area as well as entice you to use fresh herbs in your meal and salads. No long walks to the garden

Have a Dog? Do this to ensure you get your walk in.

Tell the dog "let's go for a walk!" If he's like mine, he'll sit there and dutifully remind you to go until you snap that leash on. I did this last night, he sat and stared at me. Every time I got up, he got excited. So to please my dog, we went for a walk. BTW, he even knows what later means.
