WATER IS LIFE
“Be like water.”~ Bruce Lee
Did you know that your body is composed of approximately 60% water. Have you ever felt dizzy or sleepy in the afternoon when working or at school? This is a symptom of fatigue which reduces productivity and performance. One solution to fatigue is ensuring that you are drinking adequate amounts of water.
Drinking water in the morning on an empty stomach is one way to ensure that you remain hydrated and sharp during the day. The Mayo Clinic found that optimum water per day for men should be 3 liters and for women 2.2 liters. Dehydration can decrease one’s ability to focus so make sure you drink water regularly while studying, before test taking and when you need to focus!

Water is also a symbol of fluidity. To achieve peak performance in life we must not be rigid in our habits or thinking but instead be fluid and able to adapt to our circumstances and new information. Ideally we must create a habit of experimentation and self assessment to see if our assumptions are still serving us in life or not. In this way water is a powerful teacher and symbol of how students working at life mastery can adapt a mindset conducive of growth.
For example, you might believe that you can get more done by multitasking working on something while listening to something and switching between projects. Try to complete a similar amount of work by having a singular focus on that task. Turn off any outside distractions. Work on only that task or project for a couple hours and see if you achieve as much, more or less than when you were multitasking. Then do more of what works and adapt to the results you find. Testing assumptions and making adjustments that might be contrary to them based on new evidence is being a fluid thinker. Be fluid, like water!
