At Oxygen Yoga and Fitness we like to sweat and we like to make you sweat! With an increased body temperature you sweat a heck of a lot more. The average human sweats approximately 20-24oz of water during an hour of fitness according to active.com . We wanted to talk about how important it is to hydrate as well as how simply being well hydrated can help improve some areas of your life and health. Karoline Fortin is a strong believer that starting with proper hydration is the key to maintaining energy flow, helps to keep your chakras open and improves life force vibration.
Maintaining Energy Flow Through Proper Hydration
Your personal health is one of the most vital components to keeping your energy flow healthy and balanced. Despite this, 78% of Canadians agree that they don’t drink enough water. Letting yourself reach even a minor dehydration can negatively affect you in a variety of ways, whereas proper hydration helps with detoxification, weight loss, pain relief, skin purification, and much more. Consider these important factors to staying hydrated, so you and your spirit can both happily say, “I honour my body.”
Staying hydrated helps you with your daily meditations. Staying hydrated will help with focus, energy regulation, and thoughtfulness. These factors will help massively to let your meditations leave you feeling powerful and refreshed, rather than tired and unfocused. Without proper hydration, your meditation will be unfocused and draining, defeating the whole purpose of meditating in the first place.
Some believe that because water is a core ingredient in soft drinks or caffeinated beverages, you’ll achieve proper hydration through them. However, it’s important to consider the correct elements of pure, fresh drinking water. As well as the elements, you should consider the qualities of the water, such as electrolytes and purity. This will be key to staying hydrated, allowing your brain to function at its highest capacity and keep your body running well. Hydration is one of the most important factors of your health, so ensure that the water you’re enriching your mind and body with is of a proper quality.
Keeping Your Chakras Open
Hydration affects each chakra, as it affects your overall health. Improper hydration can leave you with headaches, increased blood pressure, and an irritated or sore throat. Just the same, blocked or hindered pathways of the Crown, Heart, and Throat chakras can leave you with the same symptoms. Remaining hydrated at the correct levels will help you to keep these energy paths open, allowing you to remain balanced and healthy.
Improve Your Life Force Vibration
From a spiritual point of view, water is a form of life energy. The vast majority of life is dependent on water to thrive and live, and humans are no different. Failing to hydrate properly will leave your life force vibration failing, whereas proper hydration will help to energize your body and mind.
There are many reasons it’s important to remain hydrated, extending to body, mind, and spirit. Failing to hydrate properly will leave you unhealthy, even if you’re doing everything else perfectly. Similarly, if you maintain your chakras flawlessly in every way except for proper hydration, you will find yourself falling short. The most important part of balance is ensuring that every part of you works perfectly. Giving your body the proper hydration is the most important way to honour your body by far.”
