Have you ever wondered how water brings so many delightful feelings?
I would like to take you with me, on an inner reflection to appreciate and recognize some daily situations where water plays a fundamental/fun/cultural role in our lives...
You can name it a sweet cup of cinammon and apple tea when you are sick, a hot cup of coffee to start the day or a cold glass of water as a relief from exercising, talking or even just before sleeping. Drinking water has become a habit. For some it might be just a requirement to stay healthy and fit, but the truth is that water is a diet survival need.
The fact that drinking water is one of the most desirable and vital actions we do IS REAL, and let's recognize it!
Pool parties, water parks and water guns... was there anything more exciting when you were a kid?
Relaxing in a bathtub every once in a while is about pampering our body and soul. And the daily shower we are used to take in the mornings or nights can bring us to life again! It can be a 5 - 10 minutes ritual, indeed a pleasure we are used to take for granted.
So next time you shower, be aware of your action and feel lucky! Not everybody in the planet can take hot showers whenever they need or wish to.
What do you feel when you swim in the sea?
You can feel the wet sand surrounding your body, the passing waves going up and down with a special rythm... and sometimes you can even taste the salty environment.
Sunrises, sunsets. Days and Nights...
Is there anything more beautiful that the sight and sound of these natural wonders? I would doubt there are many things as grandiose and magnificent as the ones I just mentioned. Water in it's natural environment can be powerful and calmed. It can be the most beautiful thing on Earth, as well as the most destructive.
Can you think of any other pleasure water brings us in our daily lives? Remember that the simple things, those we sometimes take for granted, do count a lot!
TH!NK ABOUT IT!
