How to Drink More Water: tips, water tracker, free printable and phone wallpapers to help remind you to hydrate! | Thyme is Honey
Words can not describe how important this is to our health! I know some of you say water is boring and tasteless besides I'm getting some every time I drink my pop or coffee or juice. I was just like you until recently.

I knew that coffee and pop took as must water out of my system as it put in but still I figured I'm not dead yet so I must be doing something right. Turns out I was wrong.

A lot of studies show that we live in a constant state of dehydration because of that thinking.

Our bodies use water to keep our body healthy and mobile and keep our brains thinking. Sounds incredible but it's true! Second only to air it is the most precious thing you can put into your body on a daily basis to live.

Thyme is Honey where I got the image has a lot of information about making water part of your daily life and I'd like to share some of her tips here.

1) Start small. She has a handy chart here that can help you increase your water intake in just four days.

2) Set a morning goal, ie I will drink 24oz tumbler of water before I have my morning coffee.

3) Add drinking water to your daily todo list. The one you actually do.

4) Instead of pop or coffee drink water with your meals. This will aid digestion and curb heartburn

5) Remember how much you have drank can be difficult so track it somewhere

6) Have to have a glass of wine or a pop during the evening? Don't allow yourself to unless you drink a glass of water for each other beverage you drink. Helps prevent hangovers too.

7) Try some of these flavoured waters to make it a little less boring.

8) Trick yourself. If you are having a hard time kicking the pop habit switch to Sparkling water you get the carbon hit & the water you need.

9) Make iced tea, the herbal tea's from David's Tea is great for this, as a treat.

Remember we are made mostly of water so take care to keep your body and mind hydrated.

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
