52 Tiny Changes Archive

Change is so huge, so big, so time-consuming. It is much easier to keep the status quo.

Does it have to be that way? How about if we change just a little at a time? We are not remaking your whole life at once. If you do one tiny change a week, by the end of the year you will have a better, more vibrant life. Another positive is with small changes, you have a much better chance at keeping your new habits.

Tiny Change #13 Begin carrying a bottle of water with you to get your 8 glasses a day

Much of our loss of energy, could simply be because of dehydration. We drink so much coffee, tea and pop that our body cries out for water.

Here are some ideas to get your water in:

  • Find a water bottle you love
  • Keep water in a pitcher in the fridge, so cold water is always easy to get
  • Drink water when you go out to eat - that saves money from the overpriced beverages, too!
  • If you are drinking bottled water, find out which brand you prefer by tasting different kinds
  • Drink lemon water first thing in the morning
  • Always bring your water bottle when you exercise
  • Keep track of glasses of water you drank in a journal or PDA
  • Try the new flavored waters if you don't like the taste of plain water
