I don’t follow the trend of making New Year’s resolutions; not because I agree with Calvin…
…but possibly because I know that for the major part, they won’t be followed through (Ha! Such optimism!) . This year, however, I decided to make one. Not a big list with lots of high hopes written down, but a single, simple resolution.
My New Year’s resolution was this - to drink more water daily.
Yes, that was it! My water intake was shamefully less, and I thought if I had just a single item on my resolutions list, I’d stick to it.
So did I?
After 2/3 of the year has passed and we’re closer to the end of the year than the beginning, I’m finally making a reassessment of my water intake - and I realize that I haven’t been sticking to my resolution completely. Yes, I have noticed an improvement in my water intake, but sometimes, I go through extreme dry spells.
One thing which helps remind me to hydrate myself more often is keeping a jug of water on the table through the day. It serves as a visual reminder, while at the same time helping me keep track of the amount I drink. The prettier the jug, the better!
Having a jug of water and a glass beside me while blogging works wonders; that’s when I drink like a camel!
Now please excuse me while I go fill ‘er up.
Have you kept up with your New Year’s resolutions?
