So far, so hydrated ...
Saturday, June 16, 2012
Just returned from five months in Arizona (Avondale in the Valley, just a few short miles from Phoenix) and although a good experience, I'm glad to be back. I'm just a New England person at heart (and soul, too!).
But Arizona was a time of comtemplation, reinventing and realizations. Even at 60 years of age, the time there gave me all kinds of insight. But probably my biggest confirmation was the importance of hydration! Everywhere I went, I was immediatley offered a bottle of water (as well as on the way out!) And I actually did suffer a mild dehaydration about my third week there - and it sure drove home the point - HYDRATE!
I remember taking a yoga class where the instructor gave the example of what a plant looked like when it needed fluid replenishment (her words, not mine!) so how much stronger would our performance be if we remember to do likewise ... ah yes ... lesson learned!
