Hydration, relaxation, meditation


A new addition as I get through day 5 of my experiment.

Hydration with coconut water.  I admit to having purchased this Goya coconut water container about a month ago.  It’s been sitting in my pantry waiting patiently for me to try.

I don’t know if it’s been the coconut oil that I’m getting used to, or just reading the benefits that got me to bust it open today to try it.  It’s sweet, which I’m not thrilled with.  It’s chock full of potassium, carbs and natural sugar, but no fat.  In my reading some have stated its the closest thing to human plasma.  I have no clue if that’s true, but it’s my experiment, what the heck, I’ll give it a twirl.

It might just have to be small doses, and steady as we go with regular mineral water.  The coconut stuff leaves a funky aftertaste.  That might be the sugar, or maybe the thought of plasma has me turning up my nose.

I had a bunch of credits at my local Massage place, so I booked an hour.  When the gal started working on me It was everything I could do not to cry myself into a puddle.  As the stress was worked out of my body, I realized that it was that same stress holding me upright.

So I broke into meditating on Psalm 23, and visualized myself in a grassy, lush pasture having a lovely picnic and relaxing in the sunshine.  It kept the tears at bay, and let me fully let go of the toxic yuck of stress.

Listening to the “massage music”, I wondered what it would be like to work in a spot like it.  Maybe I should get my estititian’s license and do facials?  That’s a thought.  I could totally take myself in a different direction.

Today I’m especially grateful for new blogs to follow, encouraging comments, and new friends.  

I know this transition will take time, but today was a very nice day.  I’m so thankful.

  1. Awesome Wendy. You have such a positive attitude.
    Coconut water is a great hydrator. Full of electrolytes. I can drink it fresh out of the coconut here. Yummmm.

      • I guess you could say it’s a little sweet. But not sickening sweet, or like something’s been added. It’s best when it’s cold.
        I love living in Brazil. It’s my home now (after 13 years).
