This post about wisdom from mothers was brought to you by Nestlé® Pure Life®. All opinions are mine.
I have been so blessed with older women in my life to guide me along the way. My mother, two grandmothers, lovely ladies from church, as well as women in my husband's family. I think it's essential for young girls and women to have those kind of women to look up to and gain wisdom from. A few pieces of wisdom that stand out are these:
- "Always wear sunscreen."
- "Never use cruise control in the rain."
- "Leave your dishes to soak so you won't be scrubbing them later."
- "Brush your teeth before bed and in the morning."
- "Save your jars for easy food storage."
- "Eat protein before bed for the best rest."
- "You're not going to a fashion show." (my personal favorite…said when I could "never" find anything to wear. haha!)
The great advice doesn't end there. Some things I've learned by watching my mother and other women. It's in the way they act and talk and it has been passed on to me not by words, but by my observing them, and I am truly blessed.
I have also learned a lot about proper nutrition and how to stay healthy from my mother. She sweetly sends me information she has read online or seen on TV shows that I probably have missed about new health information. I first learned about the health benefits of chia seeds from my mother. She has also always encouraged me to drink enough water and the benefits of keeping kids hydrated. Water on the go, especially during the hot summer months, like Nestlé® Pure Life® purified water offers a number of hydration options and is committed to helping families live healthy, active lifestyles. Nestlé® Pure Life® water never has any artificial colors or flavors, no calories, no sugar, consistent taste nationwide, and guaranteed safety and quality in every bottle. It's something Mom would recommend. How do I know….because it's the brand she prefers!
Nestlé® Pure Life’s® Facebook page is powered by almost 400,000 fans! Last year, over 100,000 fans joined the Nestlé® Pure Life® Hydration Movement by pledging to swap one sugary beverage a day with water for a year to cut 50,000 calories from their diet, and then share their family’s story of healthy hydration on the Facebook page mosaic. This year, Nestlé® Pure Life® is asking fans to take a simple online pledge to drink more water. They can also enter a sweepstakes for a chance to win prizes and share their own wisdom through the Facebook mosaic.
Become a fan of Nestlé® Pure Life® on Facebook and stay tuned for the launch of this year’s Hydration Movement in late July! Nestlé® Pure Life® will continue to focus on healthy hydration, while also embracing Mom’s Wisdom – sharing and discovering all of the little things that moms have shared over the generations that make our lives better. And one thing all moms can agree on is that it’s important to keep the family healthy, hydrated and happy.
Pure wisdom should be shared with others. Visit the Nestlé® Pure Life® Facebook wall and leave a comment with the hashtag #momswisdom sharing what your mother told you and how it has made you a better person.
