Try the 30-Day Water Challenge

Monday, December 18, 2017

When it comes to liquids, water is the champion! It offers an abundance of benefits like increasing energy, promoting weight loss, flushing out toxins, and boosting the immune system. Water is also free of calories and sugar.

Most people are aware of this; however, we’re still not drinking enough H2O.

To help jump start your new healthy habit, we created a 30-Day Water Challenge worksheet. Print and keep it at your desk, on your fridge, or in another highly visible space this month.

It is recommended that an individual consume at least 64 ounces of water per day. If you want to get more specific, divide your body weight in half, then aim to drink that many ounces of water per day. For example, a person who weighs 150 pounds would have a goal to drink 75 ounces. You can calculate your number, and write it at the top of your worksheet.

It seems like a simple thing, but you might be surprised at how much better it feels to have plenty of clean water running through your veins.

Tips for the challenge:

  1. Tell a friend to join in the water challenge with you. Accountability goes a long way in reaching healthy living goals.

  2. Buy a new water bottle with the ounces listed on the side.

  3. Commit to drinking a full glass of water before eating every meal.

Okay, let’s get started. Go fill up your water cup. Cheers to a healthier you!
