A Habit For Simple Health 🌱



Definition: Movement of a solvent (such as water) through a semipermeable membrane into a solution of higher solute concentration that tends to equalize the concentrations of solute on the two sides of the membrane.

There are so many drink supplements that promise miracle solutions and hyper-optimization, but we often forget how important water is to our health and the benefits it has on its own.


Water plays a key role in many of your body’s functions, including:

  • Bringing nutrients to cells

  • Getting rid of waste

  • Protecting your organs

  • Maintaining body temperature

Despite popular online advice (which is not evidence-based), most people don't need all these supplement powders.

Your body uses osmosis to ensure that essential nutrients and minerals are balanced. When you consume excess, your body excretes them.

So, unless you have a deficiency (which you should see a physician for), you’re pretty much just making expensive urine.


Here are some of the benefits of drinking water (yes, plain water) and staying sufficiently hydrated:

  • Maximize physical performance

  • Affects energy levels and brain function

  • Prevents headaches


Why habits? Your time is valuable and limited; you don’t need more complex systems. My goal is to provide you with simple, effective tools to support your physical and mental well-being and make you more efficient and conserve mental energy. (read more)

Here are some tips for staying hydrated:

Tip 1: Start your day with a glass of water

Tip 2: Carry a water bottle

Tip 3: Drink BEFORE you are thirsty

Thirst is a sign that you are already dehydrated


In every edition of Creatures of Habit, I feature a product to help you implement this week’s habit.

Get yourself a nice reusable water bottle; it’ll probably motivate you to drink more…


A lot of us don’t drink enough water (I know I’m often guilty of this). This week, try to drink more water. See how it makes you feel.
