Entry # 1, Getting started...

Everyone knows that humans need water to live. We learn at a young age that we need eight cups of water a day to be healthy. But is that true? For many years I have been trying to get into a better habit of drinking water throughout my day. For some reason, I have not been able to get this good habit going! When I asked the students to practice their self control to end a bad habit and start a healthy one, I knew this would be a great chance for me to finally start drinking more water. I am trying to start a healthy habit of staying more hydrated.

I believe that my challenge will be taking the time to prepare a bottle of water in the morning and fill it throughout the day. My first strategy will be to select a bottle I think will work well for me. My second strategy will be to fill the bottle the night before the next day while I am making my lunch. I already have the healthy habit of making my lunch for the next day each night. I will use this established habit to help support my new one! The picture shows which water bottle I selected. I selected this one because I like the size, it is easy to drink from and has a top that I like. I do not like the squirt kind of water bottles because it makes me feel like I'm on the field, and I do not like the the tops that are attached because you have to hold them back while you drink. I think this will be a good water bottle for me. Here is a video explaining the benefits of drinking water from HealthiNation, an accredited health content provider:
