A new year means new resolutions! I’m going to be honest, I am terrible at resolutions. I set them every year and fail most of the time. WHY? For me I tend to set way to many goals, so this year I am taking a different approach. One new goal for every other month with hope that it will stick the rest of the year. So why every other month? Because my good friend Google says “On average it takes more than 2 months before a new behavior becomes automatic – 66 days to be exact. And how long it takes a new habit to form can vary widely depending on the behavior, the person, and the circumstances”.
So for the months of Jan and Feb I’m going to put down the soda and drink more water. Water is so hard for me to drink because it is just so boring and flavorless. Who else agrees with me? If water is a hard one for you too, I have a few things that can make it more enjoyable. Young Living Vitality Essential Oils and YL Vitality Drops + Electrolytes have been a life saver for me the last few days. By adding a drop or two of a citrus vitality oil to your water you can transform that flavorless cup of water to a magnificent quenching liquid. And the great thing about citrus oils is that they don’t harm the enamel on your teeth. Since the oils are extracted from the peel of the fruit it’s not acidic like the juice in the fruit.
Now maybe soda isn’t your nemesis, maybe it’s coffee, energy drinks, wine, or beer. Regardless of what your drink is I want to challenge you to join me in these next few months to drink more water. Put down that sugary unhealthy drink and grab a glass of water. I’m not asking you to drink gallons each day but let’s work towards half a gallon. Now go grab your favorite water bottle and drink up you lush!
If you have questions about how to get your hands on some of these citrus vitality oils or Vitality drops hit your girl up at Courtney@PickledLemonade.com, I’d love to get some in your hands to add to your water.
Side note: When using essential oils in your water bottle be sure to use a glass bottle. Essential oils can eat the petrochemicals that are found in plastic. When using the YL Vitality Drops + electrolytes you are safe to use a plastic or glass water bottle.
