Pebbles or Pearl Logo_FinI’m thinking maybe I have taken too much information in on drinking water and have reached overload. We have so many decisions to make, some of which are:

  1. Bottle vs. Tap (which could be one and the same by the way)
  2. Drinking from BPA free plastic vs. glass vs. stainless steel
  3. Filtered vs unfiltered
  4. Alkaline vs. regular water
  5. 64 ounces a day vs. half your weight in ounces
  6. Drink 30 minutes before (or after) a meal vs. drinking with meal
  7. Room temperature vs. cold

On average the human body is made up of approximately 65% water.  I’m sure, like me, you’ve read or heard about multiple benefits and reasons for drinking water from prettier skin, to better organ and overall health.  We know we should and must, but all the decisions we face in just downing a glass of water is daunting and can lead to where I am today, information overload. Am I the only one who feels like I’ve failed when I don’t reach the minimum amount of water per day? Or who gives public fountains the side eye when it’s time to refill my water bottle.

So what do I do now that I have reached information overload? In my post entitled I Don’t Trust You I talked about equipping yourself with tools to reach your health and self-care goals. One of the tools was to create a plan. I have gone back to my plan and rewritten my water goal to simply state I will track my water intake for this week and calculate my average and beat that average the next week. For the decisions I’ve already made I added my answers as they stand now:

  • I prefer a glass water bottle
  • I will drink both room temperature and cold
  • I will drink either 30 mins before or after a meal

The rest is to be determined after I recover from water information overload.  Let me know what you do to reach your water intake goals. Please share what works for you and what you’ve tried that didn’t work for you. Remember, one person’s pebble could be another person’s pearl.
