One of the precious tidbits of pure wisdom, I remember my mom instilling me as a child was the importance of hydration aka. DRINK WATER.
No, not juice.........WATER.
No, not soda.........WATER!
Simple but true, water is the most important ingredient to helping your body work to the best of its ability. It helps your skin look better, helps you have more energy and well is just gosh darn necessary for a healthy life!
Nestlé® Pure Life® is launching a Hydration Movement in late July, focusing on healthy hydration, while also embracing Mom’s Wisdom – sharing and discovering all of the little things that moms have shared over the generations that make our lives better.
And one thing all moms can agree on is that it’s important to keep the family healthy, hydrated and happy.
Speaking of happy families, another way my mom passed down some pure wisdom to me was by always having an open door policy when it came to friends and family that were in need.
A neighbor, or acquaintance that was going through a hard time knew that they could always swing by for a meal or a pillow to rest their head at a moment's notice.
My mom, a wonderful cook always showed me that one of the best ways to show genuine care and compassion for an individual, was simply by making them a home cooked meal.
Somehow, she's perfected her best dishes to be both delicious and packed with nutritional value (she studied nutrition in college) - a habit I hope to re-create in my own family.
Thanks, mom for the pure wisdom you've shared with me over the years. I owe you one....or two or three.
And here's some more awesome pieces of pure wisdom from Nestlé® Pure Life® on how to help keep your family happy and healthy by staying hydrated this summer.
- Did you know that 60% of an adult body is water? Keep it well hydrated by drinking enough water!
- In addition to drinking plain water every day, eating foods with high moisture content—such as fruits and vegetables—could be a good way to increase total water consumption. Water constitutes 90% of most fruits and vegetables and about 50% of meats.
- Drink water with and between your meals. Adults and children take in about 400 calories per day as beverages—drinking water can help you manage your calorie intakes.
