Get Healthy: Staying Hydrated And It Feels So Good!

Rainbow colored umbrellas line our sandy beaches. The wind carries the fruity aroma of suntan lotion, and there are no shortage of entertainment and activities to partake in Jacksonville. Our schedules calm down a bit, and we relax. But with this heat index on the rise, we must remember to do something daily. What is the single most important ingredient we humans need after oxygen?

Water. We must remember to drink it. Drinking water allows for miracles to occur in our body. Hydration promotes a strong immune system. Our sleep is more peaceful, waking up feeling refreshed. Hydration keeps our soft tissue and muscles pliable versus cramping during the night. We improve our cognitive capacity to think more clearly. Our minds are sharp and agile instead of feeling bogged down like an old computer with too many windows open. Drinking water restores our energy and keeps us alert.

Hydration is necessary in maintaining normalized blood pressure which leads to decreased rate of falls, soft tissue injuries, and decreased headaches.

Hydration makes us happy. Drinking water creates a more normal gastrointestinal environment which allows natural serotonin, dopamine, and melatonin to be created. These are the feel good chemicals. Hydration naturally stimulates the production of these feel good chemicals so that we can be more happy and think more happy thoughts.

It’s easy to become hydrated. Establish a new schedule of water consumption. Chug three glasses right when you wake up. Drink one more before you leave for work.

Set up alerts on your smartphone. Carry your canteen with you. Eat more fruits and veggies like melons, grapes, celery, cucumber, and broccoli. Water and hydration, simply, put, gives quality of life by allowing every cell in the our body to perform at its highest capacity.

About Veronica Nabizadeh

Introducing Healing Health Coach Veronica Nabizadeh For your Personal Restart Our military life exposed me to many deeply rooted cultures and traditions, which cultivated our family values. I experienced life in various cities in Germany, Korea and Italy before living in the U.S. At an early age, I learned how to pack up and restart somewhere new. It was refreshing to re-invent myself, always hoping to do things better and with more ease. I was born in a scantily populated German town called Landstuhl. My father became an American citizen by enlisting in the Army and we lived in Europe for most of my young adult life. I am the second of four children and am proud to be a first-generation American of Mexican heritage. Today, I'm a devoted wife of 18 years and mom to my seven year-old-princess. While I am a Florida licensed attorney, I have always had the privilege of working with my husband in our medical practice. I've had the opportunity to study life and relationship coaching with Tony Robbins and Strategic Intervention and am a Master Certified Health and Wellness Coach through the Catalyst Coaching Institute. It's easy to renew oneself with the added benefit of youth, change of environment, living under the roof of one's parents and without the bumps and bruises suffered due to life's lessons. We were invincible, indestructible as young individuals. Getting old, feeling old was off the radar. As an adult however, It's so easy to find oneself in a rut. We've paid our dumb taxes (not related to IRS) and suffered through the lessons that life has presented to us. Some of those lessons, being repeats. In a non-sustainable way, we fixed our ideas, shaped our viewpoints, limited our beliefs and all of this negatively impacted the health of our bodies. We start feeling old before our time. Well, on one fine day, I found myself in the fast lane of a downward spiral. I had inadvertently and unequivocally formed a very nice rut for myself and I decided I needed to get out. Pronto. This is the basis for the creation of Personal Restart, a lifestyle and medical wellness practice that helps people do exactly that: Restart. We help people restart their lives through the use of cutting edge coaching practices and state of the art medical science. I have had a personal restart and feel that my life is spiraling up. I believe that everyone has the ability to look and feel their best through self-love, self-healing and self-reliance. Everyone deserves to have their hormones balanced, their energy restored and their limited beliefs replaced by the truth. I'm a self-taught herbalist and aromatherapist, practicing kitchen witchery at home for my family and friends. My kitchen is my favorite place in my home. I love making my own infusions, tinctures and body lotions and filling my medicine cabinet with workable natural products that I've created. Cooking for my family gives me so much joy. I've learned how to prepare healthy noninflammatory meals by fusing Persian and Mexican cuisines. My dream is to gently awaken the powerful spirit in all of us, helping us heal from the inside out, and experience the gift of living through health, gratitude, and forgiveness. It is an honor to write health and wellness articles for EU Jacksonville and it is my hope to share and spread my knowledge of how to do and be your best because it can be done if you so desire.
