Our bodies are about 60% water. We are so freaking dehydrated, yet we don’t even know it. We often mistake dehydration for hunger. By the time we feel “thirsty” we are already very dehydrated. Our cells NEED water. You can tell when someone is hydrated, their skin is vibrant and glowing. For about 2 years now I have been waking up and drinking 1.5-2 liters of water just in the morning (Yes I peed a lot at first but then my body got used to it!)
When we sleep our body goes through a process of detoxing the junk we absorb from our air, food, skin, etc. The first thing you should do in the morning is scrape your tongue with a stainless steel tongue scraper (look our for this post soon!) THEN drink water. Even better, drink alkaline water because according to several scientific theories, disease cannot grow in an alkaline environment. Yet, most of our bodies especially here in the states are so flipping acidic–it’s crazy. From our sugar consumption (the highest it’s ever been), to the GMO’s in our food, pesticides, carbonated soda, meat…I could go on and on…
Did you know that Lemon Juice alkalizes our body?
I buy the organic cold pressed jars from Amazon, click here to check it out.
I thought it would make sense to include a chart of alkalinity, although I will save my detailed thoughts on that for another post 🙂

My challenge for you is to start taking a water bottle with you wherever you go and sip on it throughout the day. See how many times you can fill it up throughout the day.
These bottles on Amazon are stylish and stainless steel (better than plastic!), check them out here.
Here’s to a happy and healthy you!
