As a consumer investigator, Dale has negotiated thousands of settlements between parties. Vendors have a moral responsibility to deliver the product they promised, and consumers have a moral responsibility to pay for services rendered. It's that simple. It's been his experience that about 2 percent of consumers concentrate incredible effort toward getting something for nothing. When you read bad references, take them with a grain of salt. If you don't find a pattern, you've found a 2 percent-er. Click HERE to read more from Dale's article.
|TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Easy Tips to Stay Hydrated|
- Enlist the help of a "Hydration Buddy," basically find a close friend or family member that you like, appreciate, and respect who you can use as an accountability partner for about 1 - 2 months until drinking water is a habit. This friend or family member can call, email, or text message you at agreed upon times like the afternoon and evening to remind you to drink a glass of water.
Accountability works. It works in breaking serious addictions, so it can also be used to pro-actively learn new habits that are healthy for your body and the mind. Remember drinking water is healthy for your mind because your brain is 75% water and needs it to function optimally.
- Use technology to assist you in remembering to drink water. Set a clock or a timer to go off about every hour. Use that as a cue to take a break, stand up, do some stretches, take a little walk or bathroom break, and then drink a full glass of water or refill the water from your previous hour.
At first thought, this might appear to be an interruption and a time waster. However, your brain needs the hydration to work at optimal performance levels and your body including your back and spine will thank you for taking the time to change positions and stretch it a little. You will find that you will actually be more productive, healthier, and positive when you take a stretch and water break regularly.
