AU CONTRAIRE
MY GRANDMA GOT ALL A’S IN “ETIQUETTE” (YES THAT WAS AN ACTUAL CLASS IN HER HIGH SCHOOL) AND SHE TOLD ME, “DEAR,” SHE SAID,
“YOU NEVER CROSS YOUR LEGS, YOU CROSS YOUR ANKLES. BUT THE GREAT THING ABOUT YOU LIVING IN THIS GENERATION IS YOU DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW MY GENERATION’S RULES. SIT THE WAY YOU WANT. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UP YOUR SKIRT, JUST TELL THEM YOUR AUNT MARY WILL KILL THEM.”WHICH IS TRUE
MY AUNT MARY HAD A SWITCHBLADE IN A SPECIAL POCKET OF HER NIGHTGOWN UNTIL THE DAY SHE DIED
the moral of this story is
1. Sit the way you want.
2. My great aunt Mary was a fucking badass.

Aunt Mary is my new hero

Recently I’ve been struggling to drink more water, I’m not sure why but I’ve finally found a way of making sure I’m getting enough water and I guess I seem to forget that every system and function that goes on in my body needs water.
Did you know though? One in 5 women drink less than the recommended daily intake of water.
I’ve started to up my intake of water, I’ve increased my intake up to 3 litres a day, because as it is getting hotter and I’m working out in the heat, I need to make sure that my body is able to function properly. 
So I decided to make sure that when I get up in the morning, I make sure I’ve finished at least 1/2 of a one litre bottle (especially as I don’t tend to wake up in the night and my body is probably dying of thirst) and then  I will eat my breakfast. And that rule I find applies for both lunch and dinner. I find that when I drink my water before I have breakfast, I tend to control my portions better, and I don’t end up with a giant mountain for breakfast. I’m making sure eat enough, including snacks, but if I’m hungry I tend to cook more for breakfast. 
Top tips for increasing your intake: 
I’ve started stocking my fridge full of fruit infused water, making sure there are a variety of combinations to make sure that I don’t get bored. Currently my favourite is frozen watermelon chunks, they add the greatest flavour in the world!
If you like spicy food, then this can be another way of increasing your water intake, because if you’re eating spicy food, you tend to reach for the water a lot. And spicy food helps your metabolism! 
Apps. Yes there are actually apps for your phone that remind you to drink water. Apps like waterlogged and water your body allow you set alerts for your phone. 
Water filters, you don’t need these, however I know some of my family do prefer to drink their water filtered. It’s not essential but it’s an option for you. 
Take water with you, so if you’re at work, have water on your desk, I take a bottle in my handbag literally everywhere I go, keep a bottle beside your bed, next to your computer, anywhere you’re likely to go on a day to day basis. It then stops you from reaching for the soda or fizzy drinks. (Everything in moderation though, I’m not say don’t drink fizzy drinks, every once in a while though)
When you work out, take a huge bottle, I usually have a 2 litre bottle of water with me when I work out, however if you’re running outside, there are specific bottles that can help you when you’re running.
When you go out for dinner, drink water, it will not only reduce your bill in the end, but there is nothing wrong with having one drink of lemonade or fizzy drink, but then having a pitcher of water on the table!
Eating foods that are filled with water, so things like cucumber, melon, celery, lettuce, all of those are high in water, so that another way of increasing your intake of water. 
Take baby steps, if you’re struggling to drink even one glass of water and you try to drink 2 litres of water straight off, then it can end up making you feel bad for not being able to drink all that water. So gradually increase it, so if you’re drinking one small glass a day, increase that to 2, and so on. You can do it!
Make it a habit, when I first started drinking water I hated the taste of it, but changing up the water and giving it a bit of flavour at least to start off with can really help you! Now I drink water straight from the tap, but it just takes time.
