It’s a very confusing time in history right now. With this self-quarantine to slow the spread of a worldwide pandemic, there is so much conflicting information bouncing around. Between fear-generated news broadcasts, business shutdowns and stores shifting hours and policies to make a safe atmosphere for shoppers, there is a lot of worry and stress placed on everyone’s shoulders. Being inside for nearly a month or more can also play on the nerves. While you build a new routine and adjust as best as possible, you are likely missing out on the single greatest thing you SHOULD be doing while in isolation.

By consuming enough clean water, you can keep your body running at optimal levels, stay healthier, concentrate better, have ample energy to get through your day and even lift your spirits. Anxiety and fear cause us to worry over things beyond our control and lose sight of the most important aspect: self-care. Take a deep breath, turn off the news. grab a glass of refreshing water and take a moment for yourself.

Just remember to take a small water break after every 8 songs!
