Love it or hate it, Los Angeles is a dry desert and most of us love to get our sweat on. Dry weather plus water-loss equals the fact that most of us are running around totally dehydrated.
Signs of being under-hydrated include having dry and lifeless skin, getting headaches, being tired all the time, and a number of other symptoms that don’t fit in with our LA wellness-based lifestyles. This isn’t an issue for just the LA folk. This is something that affects a lot of us.
I had insomnia last night. My little one seemed a bit restless as well and only stopped nursing long enough for me to sneak away for a cup of water and a bathroom visit. So, we’re probably both going to be tired today.
I’m especially concerned about my ability to mother today because yesterday my patience was tested quite a bit and I wasn’t as creative and resourceful as I could have been.
