Hunger and Thirst Mechanisms are So Close
Here we are at the fourth posting of our topic of Emotional Eating. This one will be a help for all of us. It addresses a habit that is really easy to do, and really easy not to do. Most people don’t. For myself many years back, when I became aware of the importance of drinking water throughout the day; I wasn’t drinking any planned water at all. It took some time to develop this habit for me.
At first the habit was too weak to be felt, and then it became too strong to be broken
The habit becomes even more important the older we get. Recently, my 94 year old mom was hospitalized because she was severely dehydrated. Oh my goodness, the symptoms it can cause…………… dizziness, confusion, weakness. I could list on and on, but this is enough.We want all of our habits to become as strong as ropes. Did you know that sometimes in the Bible, the word “rope” is translated “hope”. Hope becomes a rope to our future. Without hope, there is no future.

Drinking pure water throughout the day will not only keep you from any dehydration, which cause the digestive system to work at a much lower capacity; it will keep you feeling satisfied. When you develop that focus on remembering to drink your water, that focus on wanting to emotionally eat begins to lessen.
1/2 your body weight in ounces of pure water daily is ideal.
Premeasure your water.
Drink throughout the day and not at meals as this dilutes your digestive juices.
