These are the simplest pieces of wisdom in this whole collection, and they are amazingly powerful.
Oh, how I wish I could relive those days in my 20’s, 30’s, 40’s (days?…actually years) of chronic weariness, when I was heroically trying to “do it all” and muddling through on way too little sleep.
I was also ignorant of the most basic of my body’s needs, including water!
- Get enough sleep (for me that’s at least eight hours, often nine…and, yes, I am an adult. Kids need even more)
- Drink enough water (if you’ve had several cups of coffee and you still feel dull, that’s your cue to grab a big glass of water; I’ve been amazed at the quick energy boost)
- Don’t sit for too long (I am standing as I write this; using a standing desk took some getting used to, but I now feel so much sharper and invigorated).
It’s just so incredible to actually feel good…every day!
