Long ago I realized the importance in balancing out what kind of water to drink. I discovered that drinking ionized water helped to add the extra pH (alkalinity) and antioxidants my body needed to be healthy. Since then I've fine-tuned this to a near perfect science. For instance first thing in the morning I'll make my coffee with alkaline water from my water ionizer. Later I'll fill a few bottles with hydrogen water to drink throughout the day, while working and with various food or vitamins that I consume.
Later I'll have more of a mix of alkaline ionized water or hydrogen water, about half & half. As I think about balancing my body's liquids I will usually get a sense what my body needs.
Balancing Body-Position and Exercise
Another thing I've found to be very healthy for the body is to balance out my body positions and activity-levels. Since I work on the computer a lot, I've found that setting my computer on a raised surface allows me to work while standing up. I try to do half & half of standing and sitting while on the computer each day.
Then, another way I balance myself is to try to get a variety of exercise breaks (indoors/outdoors, ropes, dancing, etc.) When I started getting older I realized that I couldn't get away with what I used to when I was younger. Without sufficient exercise daily the body simply cannot stay as healthy as it can with a nice balance of rest and exercise.
There is no substitute for trying to get balance as you go with just about everything you do. Don't wait till you develop a problem (with your health or anything else), put balance into your life now to ensure you stay healthy every single day of your life. I have found out that this is a very reasonable goal (not a lofty goal at all). See my testimonial.
