The Power of Water

Power of Water - Letting Go CafeWe have all heard about the incredibly strong undercurrents of rivers and lakes. My guess is that you have seen (or heard about) the many cruise liners, holding thousands of people, that have disappeared in the ocean, never to be seen again. That is water power. Water, the combination of hydrogen and oxygen, is a powerful force to be reckoned with on all levels, including in your body.

I recently read about someone in the UK who decided to put the power of water to the test for one month. Power of Water - Letting Go CafeShe did not change her diet, she did not increase her exercise activity, and she did not spend a bunch of money on some diet plan. She simply replaced all of her liquid intake with one gallon of water daily. The results were amazing.

When people find out that I am a vegan, one of the first conversations after learning more about it, is inevitably related to how they can begin to adopt healthier habits into their eating and exercise lifestyle. I encourage people to take baby steps. I certainly did not show up as a vegan. Becoming vegan evolved over the years from eating any and everything, to eliminating meat and the seven deadly whites, to integrating raw fruits and veggies each day. Along the way, I also learned the power of water in and on the body.

The first baby step is to integrate drinking more water into your daily regiment. Replace the coffee, tea, shakes, soda pop, and those pseudo electrolyte replacement drinks – with filtered water. If you drink bottled water, be very selective and use a glass drinking bottle. This step alone will change the way you feel and look. Just ask the lady from the UK who drank a gallon of water each day for a month. It changed her entire outlook on life.

Try drinking one gallon of water daily for one month and see what happens. What do you have to lose?
If you think about it, one month is just a small dot on the long lifeline.

You deserve it!! Go for it!!

10 Tips For Turning Dreams Into Reality

Dreams – the big and small stuff you want to accomplish in your life – are often not perceived as urgent, yet they are very important.

Do you dream?

So many of us don’t treat our own dreams with respect – like we honor and support the dreams of others.

Why is that?

Here are 10 simple tips for turning YOUR dreams into reality:

  1. Make time each day to write down your dreams.
  2. Break down those dreams in to steps, place dates on these steps and turn (or integrate) those steps in to individual business plans.
  3. Read your dreams/goals at least once a day with passion and belief in their realization
  4. Connect and share your dreams with someone – a buddy – who has your best interest at heart. Ask them to hold you accountable – in a loving way – for succeeding.
  5. Read at least 10 pages of your favorite personal development book every day.
  6. Exercise at least three times each week. Exercising allows fresh oxygen to your body feeds your inner desire to be better
  7. Become informed about dieting and develop healthy eating habits

  9. Don’t be afraid to fail for it is through trial and error that you will find your greatness.
  10. Finally, live YOUR dreams – not those of others. Your dreams deserve to be realized as much as anyone.
