This Month’s resolution: Drink more water to get the Big Win. While it may not sound as the most exciting New year resolution, it can be the most rewarding.
In one drop of water is found all the secrets of the ocean
Little steps can have a great impact in achieving a healthy lifestyle.
This is our third story on this monthly series that aims to help you develop and adopt a positive lifestyle change to achieving the Big Win. We all know that drinking water is essential for us to stay alive but did you also know that-
drinking water can improve metabolism, prevent fatigue, help you detox and reduce stress.
So what is stopping us? Here is how you can embrace this habit?
Drinking 8 glasses of water is doable enough but our busy schedules make us forget, we substitute beverages for water and of course too much caffeine.

To make the infusion, you can start with cold water or, for a stronger flavor, with hot (not boiling) water, as this will help extract flavor. Set the water aside until cool and you can chill in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving, or add some ice cubes.
Here are some of my favorite combinations:

- Lemon and cucumber
- Pineapple chunks and slices of fresh ginger
- Dried rosebuds or rose petals—you can use fresh, but the dried have a more concentrated flavor
- Fresh or dried lavender
