resource-water.jpgWhat is electrolytenment? It’s the term resource® Spring Water has coined for an enlightened state of mind, body and soul. It’s a hybrid word made by combining one of the essential ingredients of resource® Spring Water, electrolytes, with enlightenment. Cute, right?

How one achieves electrolytenment is extremely personal, whether it’s from working on crossword puzzles, through meditation or by running a marathon, what works for one person won’t necessarily work for another. There are many activities that bring me joy or pleasure, but achieving an enlightened state of mind, body and soul is a rare combination.

I do yoga regularly and have experienced the “zen” feeling that comes with a great practice, particularly during shavasana, the relaxation pose that closes every yoga practice. This summer, I’ve also been making an effort to move my workout outdoors and have been working on increasing my running endurance. I’ll admit, I have never been an exercise lover, but you can’t beat the feeling of accomplishment and yes, electrolytenment, you get after completing a great workout.

Of course, when working out in the summer heat, it’s important to drink a lot of fluids. resource® Natural Spring Water is a great choice for fueling a workout since it’s 100% naturally sourced spring water and has naturally occurring electrolytes. I also appreciate that the packaging is made with 50% recycled plastic.

In the typically overscheduled and hectic lives we lead, it’s important to take the time and allow ourselves small indulgences throughout the day. Whether it’s a piece of dark chocolate after lunch, an hour of hot yoga after work, or some extra hugs from a loved one, these are the little things that give us pleasure and help keep us balanced and sane. One of my favorite indulgences is the half hour I give myself each morning to sit in a quiet room with a cup of coffee to read the day’s news and gossip before the insanity of daily life begins. On the rare occasion that my schedule won’t allow for my morning “me” time and I have to grab my coffee on the run, I really feel a difference in my mood throughout the day — I feel a little off-center and a bit more stressed.

One of the essential ingredients of my morning indulgence is my cup of coffee. I know I’m not alone in how much I look forward to this ritual. My Keurig coffee maker brings me so much pleasure, I’m almost embarrassed to admit how happy it makes me after all these years. I even have a special coffee cup reserved just for me (my husband knows to keep his hands off my cup!) and for some reason, coffee just tastes better in my cup.

Green Mountain coffees have been a favorite of mine for years, with Nantucket Blend, Breakfast Blend and Hazelnut in constant rotation. Their new collection of Café Escapes varieties has just been added to my coffee favorites. With coffee shop-inspired blends like Café Caramel, Mocha, Chai Latte, and even Dark Chocolate Hot Cocoa, they’ve managed to take my morning (and often afternoon) indulgence to a sweet new level.

How do you indulge anytime? Share a moment of relaxation with Green Mountain and enter for a chance to win a gift basket or spa weekend getaway on Facebook!
