Welcome to Fruit Water Guy – a resource and blog all about fruit infused water and why I think it is important to stay healthy and hydrated through fruit infusion for a longer life.
The journey of keeping hydrated started a few years ago for me after a I had gained weight and was struggling with movement and fatigue. This was mainly due to a life of working sitting down, not drinking much water – instead I was drinking a lot of coffee and tea and not managing what I was drinking (I have a love of bitter, bourbon and wine). Of course a lack of exercise also played a part. I suffered with lower back pain from an injury years ago and also had high blood pressure.
However I also had some hereditary concerns – with my father having suffered numerous heart attacks, blood circulation problems and diabetes. Most of this was lifestyle related and was more apparent to me later in his life. Looking back I could see the route of the problems in his smoking, drinking and lack of exercise.
Now I walk a lot, drink plenty of water and watch what I eat. And though I still drink – I manage it more wisely than I did before. So my hope is that I learn to manage myself and take responsibility so that I can live longer.
