March was considered the first month of the year according to the Romans, who named the month after the god of war, Mars.
I see March as the turning point between winter and spring, an opportune time to clean house and freshen up eating habits. So don’t spend those rainy evenings in front of the TV, gear up for spring and warm weather and spring-clean your eating habits! Even if you already eat healthy, there is always something new and delicious to try.
Do you know that 75% of our bodies are made of water? Eight glasses of water for good health is no myth — actually most health experts say to drink half your weight in ounces. Drinking more water could solve a health issue you’re grappling with now, in fact it could mean an end to headaches, acne, and even fatigue. Sorry — diet drinks, sports drinks, and even teas don’t hydrate the way water does. They actually pull water from the body’s supply for digestion – so go pure, drink plain water.
