Eat and Drink to Take Care

I think we have all heard the hydration rule, “If you wait to drink when you are thristy, you are already dehydrated….”

Well, this is my new eating rule. “If you wait until you are hungry to eat, your body is already needing energy.”

To be good at self-care we will work to feed and hydrate our bodies at regualr intervals so that our bodies trust that all is okay. We will have our water bottles with us and drink from them. We will also eat our meals on time and take breaks for snacks. If we know we have a hard work-out or long day ahead…we will pack for it. Our bodies will experience care instead of stress.

 We deserve this : )
