I Resolve to Drink More Water

under GiveawaysStaff

You know the drill:  you're supposed to drink eight 8 oz. glasses of water a day.  But do you?  Nah.  We'll drink coffee, soda, juice--but plain ol' water?


The thing is, not only is drinking water good for hydrating your body inside and out and helping to flush toxins out of your system, but it's also a great way to lose weight.  Drinking water helps make you feel full and so you eat less! 

So in order to help you knock out TWO resolutions for the price of one (OK, there's no "price" since we're giving stuff away here...), Fiji Water has provided us with what they call the "Fiji Enthusiast": 2 cases of 500mL bottles for 3 months + a pair of Silver Sleeves valued at $265.

How's that for refreshing?

I Resolve to Get More Sleep

Although many health professionals recommend we get 7-9 hours of sleep each night, few of us are able to follow through on that simple health tip.  Our stressful, hectic lives mean we often get to bed far later than we should and wake our weary bodies far earlier than we'd like.

While tonight is all about staying up past midnight, maybe TOMORROW night can be the start of a New Year's resolution to get more--and better--sleep.

Pacific Pillows has provided us with a $50 gift card to give away to help one lucky winner achieve some sweet dreams in 2010. Read More »

If you're like many Americans, you may not really deal with the Christmas and holiday aftermath until the new year. New presents may not have been put away, decorations might remain up to after the New Year holiday, and holiday greeting cards might line the mantle well into January.

There's no doubt the holiday aftermath can be overwhelming once the holiday glow has worn off and replaced with a healthy dose of holiday consumption guilt. Not to worry.

What follows is an easy guide to help you find the appropriate way to recycle even those unwanted gifts. Read More »
