With up to 60% of the human body being made up of water, there is no way to overstate the importance of good hydration! You are constantly losing water throughout the day, as you move around, as you sleep and even while you sit behind your desk at work. Water is absolutely essential for:
- Optimum brain function
- Improved concentration
- Healthy skin and hair
- Healthy metabolism
- Headache management
- Toxin removal
- Weight loss
These are just some of the many benefits of water. Water has even been attributed to reducing the risks of bladder and colorectal cancers. The recommended amount is 8 glasses a day but it’s always a little more manageable to use a large bottle and sip on it consistently throughout the day. Our H2GO Water Filter Flask is the perfect on the go water companion.
Is the thought of sipping endlessly on water a little mundane for you? There are plenty of ways to spruce up the taste of your water by adding lemon, berries, pineapples or cucumber. There are endless ways to make your water more interesting.
Take a look at our 2 in 1 Whole House Saltless Water Softener & Filter if you are looking for pure, soft, readily available water in your home and business.

This may be one of the more daunting tasks that requires the most effort, but it shouldn’t have to! When it comes to exercise, try finding an activity you enjoy. Some people like to pump iron at the gym and sweat on a wattbike, others don’t. We have included some ideas below for a more immersive experience:
- Boxing or boxercise
- Join a running or cycling club
- Walk the dogs before work
- Hike on weekends
- Rock Climbing
- Hire a professional trainer ( this is strongly recommended if you are new to the world of training as bad technique and form will get you nowhere)
- Dance around your room or join a studio
- Sign up for a short race then train for it
Full-time job? Motivate yourself to wake up early enough to get in a session before work. It may seem tough, but the first week is always the hardest and in no time you will find yourself in a healthy routine with substantially more energy to get you through the day.
Truly stuck behind your desks? Well, this is not healthy. In fact, sitting long hours behind a desk has been called “the new smoking”! Sitting for extended periods of time can do irreversible damage that even exercise cannot fix. Get up, move around and look for exercises you can do from the comfort of your own desk or invest in a standing desk. Your job should not be the reason you let your body deteriorate and if it is, you may have some soul searching to do.
Our 2 in 1 Saltless Water Softener and Filter produces hydrogenated water which is proven to increase recovery times after workouts and increase your resistance to illness.
Diet constitutes over 80% of the battle when it comes to losing and maintaining your weight. Whether your diet is mixed or plant-based, your eating habits will affect your mood, weight, health and more. The basics are simple:
- Eat Fresh fruit and veg daily.
- Eat healthy fats like avocado, coconut and almond oil.
- Eat good carbs – vegetables, whole fruit, legumes and whole grains.
- Avoid any overly processed foods – fresh is better.
- Keep deep fried, fast foods to a minimum.
- Avoid added sugars as much as possible.
- Diets are short-term solutions, rather make a consistent, sustainable life change.
Most importantly, listen to your body, everyone is different and your nutritional needs may differ to the next person. Some people eat meat, some don’t. Some are lactose intolerant while others are diabetic. Find what works for your body and your needs and stick to it.
Remember, it is always easier to fall off the wagon than to get back on!
