Steps to increase water

I now drink a glass of water before I have my first cup of coffee. Then I went & got a watch that I could set an alarm to go off every hour. It reminds me to get up and get a glass of water. And if I haven't been drinking it reminds me to get busy, It has really helped me get my water in.

Vitamin C

Did you know?
Most mammals can make their own vitamin C; we humans are on a very short list – which also includes fruit bats, guinea pigs, and apes – that can’t.
So, don't forget to get your daily dose of vitamin C.

Enjoy the Blue Sky to Relieve Stress

No kidding, it's as easy as sitting and gazing up at that beautiful azure sky of ours! A study found that those about to tackle a difficult task who gazed at the color blue felt half as anxious as those who didn't. Let's start gazing, my friends. (and how about those clouds as well!)
