It’s October 1st, which means it’s also the first day of the Last 90 Days! Haven’t heard of it? Well it was first started by Ms. Rachel Hollis over at The Hollis Co. and focuses on their Five to Thrive theme. Now if you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years and still have no clue what I’m talking about, don’t worry because I was only enlightened about all things Rachel last December. There’s still plenty of time to catch up!
Five to Thrive focuses on five daily habits that every goal oriented person….heck, every person who wants a healthy, happy, little less stressful life should do. Here are those five things:
- WAKE UP! – get up an hour earlier each day so that you have time to do something for yourself. This can include some of the other five to thrive habits, or it can be time spent to work on one of your goals. (Don’t have big audacious goals for yourself? Grab one of these awesome little journals to learn about setting your intentions and reaching for more.)
- MOVE IT! – get your workout on for 30 minutes every day! Not into that gym trend and the thought of a marathon is laughable? Take the dog for a walk or jump on that trampoline with your kiddos. Just make sure it’s for at least 30 minutes.
- DRINK THAT WATER! – people say you’re supposed to drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day. Who are these “people” you might be wondering? Well I heard it from Ms. Hollis and about a dozen other podcasts and articles, so don’t worry about it, just hydrate! (And no darling, that La Croix, while totally tasty doesn’t count!)
- STOP EATING OR DRINKING ONE ITEM – whether you want to give up soda, or know those darn chocolate mint cookies are none other than binge worthy, pick something to give up for each 30 day segment of this challenge.
- GRATITUDE! – every morning start the day off writing down five things you are grateful for. You can technically do this in the evening as well, I just find it’s a nice way to kick start my day.
Still confused? Need, want or crave more information? Hop over here for more details 🙂

For the water drinking, reality is that each individual person has a different need for different amounts of water. Sometimes people discount the fact that some foods contain more water than others. I.E. Watermelons, have a great amount of water. If a person eats foods that have hardly any water at all, that person probably will need to drink more water. But only a doctor(they say) really can tell a person what to do or what to intake. So listen to your trusted doctors advice for professional opinions . (note, I am not a doc nor any type of medical professional and my note is not intended to take the place of any professional or medical advice ever. This note is just a personal opinion . That’s all .
Absolutely! And who doesn’t love watermelon on a hot summer day?! There truly are few things better. Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water is merely a starting point. Many doctors will in fact tell you that if you’re working out, getting that heart rate up, you actually need closer to your full weight in ounces. For example if you weigh 150 pounds that’s 150 ounces of water! Crazy stuff!
