I like to set challenges for myself to do each month. In May I did, “No TF2 May“, in June, “Junk Food Free June” and they’ve all been difficult challenges in their own way. They’ve actually spilled over past the months, so while I don’t totally abstain I’ve found myself not playing TF2 and not eating junk food as much.
This month I’ve set myself the biggest challenge of just drinking water. I’ve broken it three time already (derp) by forgetting and having a sip of something flavoured. But I’m glad I’m doing it! It’s actually helped me realise just how much of what I drink consists of sugary drinks, how little water I drink, and actually how little I’ve been drinking to keep myself properly hydrated. Months ago I bought a Brita filter water bottle to help me stay hydrated, but I neglected it in favour of green tea and high juice.
I’ve known for a long time that my skin is dehydrated and I’d been dealing with it from the outside in with products, instead of inside in by staying more hydrated. So while it’s tough, I’m enjoying the challenge, it’s prompting me to pay attention to hydration which is really important especially as the summer heat is unreal right now.
Do you set yourself challenges?
I wonder what I’m going to do for August..
