Water

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly


I don't know about you, but I LOVE water.  It's the first thing I drink in the morning and the last thing I put in my mouth before bedtime.  I am not a juice or soda drinker and I easily drink 90+ ounces of water per day.  If I don't drink enough water I get sluggish, tired, and I get massive headaches.  (something my kids inherited from me)  I honestly can't live without water!  (I know no one can actually live without water, but I really couldn't :)

Water affects so many parts of our bodies and most people do not get enough of it!  Water makes up about 75-80% of our brains, helps carry nutrients and oxygen to cells, removes waste, protects an cushions vital organs, helps the body absorb nutrients, etc, etc!

WATER.....
  • One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pains for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University of Washington study
  • Lack of water is the number one trigger of daytime fatigue
  • A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy, short-term memory, trouble with basic math (so that's why I didn't do well in math classes)  and difficulty focusing on the computer screen
  • You lose brain cells if you are dehydrated
  • 2 glasses of water after waking up helps activate internal organs
  • 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal helps digestion and helps you eat less
  • 1 glass of water before taking a bath helps lower blood pressure
  • 1 glass of water before bed helps avoid heart attack or stroke
As you can see water is essential and all of our lives depend on it!  This month our storage goal is to store water, water and more water!  It is a hot month in Utah and if there was an earthquake many of us would become dehydrated pretty quickly.  The best item to start with in your storage is WATER!!!!  Don't wait any longer, store water in juice, detergent, and soda bottles.  Buy 24 packs of water and store some in your car.  If you have the 55-gallon drums make sure you have a pump and also a container to pump the water into.  I never really thought how I was going to get the water from my 55-gallon drum to my kitchen.  I bought a 5-gallon container to use for this purpose.


Store your water today!!!
