Life can get pretty chaotic, juggling work, family, and self-care. But what if I told you that a simple morning routine tweak could be the key to unlocking more energy, productivity, and overall well-being? Yes, you guessed it, we're talking about water!

Let's dive right in (pun intended) and explore how a glass of water can be your secret weapon in achieving that work-life balance that you've been looking for, all with a side of mood enhancement and improved cognitive ability.


The sun is just beginning to peek over the horizon, and you've got a long day ahead. Before you reach for that coffee pot, consider reaching for a glass of water instead. Drinking water is like a gentle wake-up call for your body, kickstarting your metabolism and replenishing what you lost during those peaceful (or not-so-peaceful) night's sleep.

Tip - Put some water, in an insulated stainless steel tumbler, next to your bed so you can reach for it EASILY before even leaving the room.

Now, I'm not saying you have to give up coffee entirely – we all have our vices – but starting your day with water first can set the tone for a more balanced and productive day. And that is what we all want right? I'm assuming it is if your following my blogs.

Why Water Wins Over Coffee and Energy Drinks

Sure, caffeine might give you a quick jolt, but it's often followed by a crash that leaves you feeling more drained than before. Water, on the other hand, provides sustainable energy that doesn't come with those caffeine-induced rollercoaster feelings. It keeps you alert and focused without the jittery side effects.

Now let's not forget about sugary sodas and energy drinks, which can leave you on a sugar rush followed by a sugar crash. We're not in our teenage years anymore, right? Water won't play tricks on your blood sugar levels – it's a steady friend you can count on throughout the day.

A Mood Booster and Brain Enhancer

Here's the kicker: staying well-hydrated can be a game-changer for your mood and cognitive abilities. Dehydration can lead to irritability and brain fog, two things we could all do without. When you're properly hydrated, your brain can function at its best, helping you make those important business decisions or handle the demands of motherhood with grace and ease.

Sip it, gulp it, enjoy it, but most importantly, make it a part of your daily routine. Prioritize hydration and see the positive impact it has on your life.

Tip - Set an alarm every hour to remind yourself to drink more water. If you want to drink more, less often try taking 10 gulps of water before letting yourself put the water down.

Remember, finding that work-life balance doesn't have to be an impossible quest. Sometimes, the simplest changes, like a morning glass of water, can make a world of difference. So, keep your water bottle handy, keep hustling, and keep rocking those mompreneur dreams!

Stay hydrated, stay amazing, and keep that sparkle in your eye, because you've got this! 💧🌟

Choosing a Water Source

I'll keep this fairly short, because I could go on and on about this topic.

Filtered, Reverse Osmosis, Alkaline, Spring, or Hydrogen water? What's the best? Ask different people and you'll get a different response.

None of the above options are bad but we should all know that tap is not very good right? If you're not sure what's in your tap water, you can do a quick search at the EWG website.

I personally choose hydrogen water for its seemingly limitless array of benefits. I'll do a separate post about that on a later date but if you want my favorite reputable website to order from that has multiple certificates on their products for safety and effectiveness, click here and use the code HYDROSTOKED to get $50 off your order of $250 or more.
