This weekend I was visiting my parents to celebrate Father’s day and my mom reminded me how important it is for me to get my eyes checked when I mentioned to her that I had to postpone my recent appointment. I had to laugh because I am middle-aged and my mom is still reminding me how to take care of myself. This post is sponsored by Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water.
My mom has taught me many things about staying heathy while grown up. Heck, she knows what she is doing at age 84 so who can disagree? Every day, she would set a multivitamin with my breakfast so that I would get all of my vitamins. Breakfast was a meal that I never skipped and she made sure of that. It was usually cereal, a banana and some juice. It must have worked because I still eat a banana every day.
She also would remind me how important it was to stay active. I walked home from school every day and met her at the corner of our street. My elementary school was really close to my house, so it was not so bad, but my middle school was farther away. I love that she did this, because I really do enjoy walking.
One of the most important pieces of health advice that she gave me was to always ensure that I drank plenty of water. She said that this not only helped me keep hydrated, but that it would also help my skin and energy level. I always have water with me and even keep some by my bed when I go to sleep at night.
I have encouraged my own kids to do all of these things and shared the importance of hydration with them. With summer coming up here in California it is more important than ever to do our best in keeping kids hydrated.
