Day 2 - May Photo a Day Challenge

Day 2 - Morning Ritual


Today is Day 2 of the Photo a Day Challenge. Here was my post for Day 1 and here is the whole challenge.

My morning ritual involves water first thing! I cannot overstate the importance of water and I myself drink about a gallon a day. Some days its a little more, some a little less but its usually right around a gallon. I keep this water bottle with me at all times. I fill it up and keep it next to the bed at night and when I get up in the morning the first thing I do is start sipping. I drink water all day long no matter what I'm doing.

My husband and I recently stopped purchasing the disposable plastic water bottles for a few reasons. We were spending a TON of money on those because of the high volume of water we go through. We also knew that it was completely irresponsible as far as the environment was concerned. Even though we did recycle them it still just seemed like so much waste. The straw that broke the camel's back for me was when I was put into medically-induced menopause and started having bad hot flashes. I couldn't believe that one of the doctor-recommended natural remedies for hot flashes is to STOP drinking out of the disposable plastic water bottles. Apparently there is a chemical in them that is or mimics estrogen in the body! That was really scary stuff to me and I will do whatever I can to ease the hot flashes naturally, so we went to Target and I purchased this BPA-free water bottle for $8. Best purchase ever!
