The importance of drinking water / Važnost pijenja vode



Don't forget to drink water. If you forget to drink water (or other fluids), you will become dehydrated and this usually triggers headaches (not to mention other health problems and complications). I know we all know this but it is good to be reminded sometimes. Our brains are eighteen percent water, so when our brain tissue lacks water, it literally  shrinks and this is what causes dehydration headaches. Often when someone says to me they have a headache, I asked them whether they tried drinking a glass of water. Many said this little tip of mine helped them. There are many other causes for headaches but many people do suffer from dehydration headaches and never realize that what helped them was not the pain killer they took, but the glass of water they drank while taking that pill. I'm not a health fanatic nor am I against taking painkillers, but it is better to avoid taking them when we can. These photographs that show me and my significant other enjoying a cup of coffee at hotel Mogorjelo located next to river Neretva seem to be appopriate to bring this topic to the surface. In addition, don't be suprised when you order coffee in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina and you get a glass of water with. Tourists are always asking me why this happens. A glass of water is usually served with a cup of coffee here whether or not you asked for it (normally it is tap water which is safe to drink  here and it is never charged). I for one think it is a good idea and I usually end up drinking that glass of water that comes with coffee. A glass of water is typically also served if you order cakes. If you want bottled water, you will have to order it seprately.

Nemojte zaboraviti piti vodu. Ako  zaboravite piti vodu ili druge tekućine, dogoditi će vam se dehidracija, a ona obično izaziva glavobolje (da ne spominjemo druge zdravstvene probleme i komplikacije). Znam da svi to znamo, ali dobro se podsjetiti ponekad. Naši mozgovi se sastoje osamdeset posto od vode, tako da se kada mu nedostaje vode naše moždano tkivo doslovno smanjuje i to izaziva glavobolje. Često kada mi netko kaže  da ih boli glavi, ja ih upitam jesu li pokušali popiti času vode. Puno njih mi je reklo da im je ovaj moj savjet pomogao. Postoje i drugi brojni uzroci glavobolje, ali puno ljudi doista pati od glavobolja izazvanih dehidracijom i nikada to ne shvate, ne shvaćajući da im nije pomogla tableta za glavobolju nego ona časa vode koju su popili dok su bili tu tabletu. Nisam nikakav fanatik za zdravlje,  niti sam protiv tableta za bolove, ali bolje ih je izbjegavati kada to možemo. Ove fotografije koje prikazuju mene i moju drugu polovicu dok uživamo u u kavi u hotelu Mogorjelo čine se prikladnim za otvaranje ove teme. Uz to, nemojte se iznenaditi ako kada naručite kavu u Hrvatskoj ili u BIH pa dobijete čašu vode uz nju. Turisti me uvijek pitaju zašto je tomu tako. Čaša vode obično se nervira uz kavu ovdje bez obzira jeste je ili niste tražili (obično je to voda iz slavine koja je ovdje sigurna za piće i nikada se ne naplaćuje). Ja osobno mislim da je to baš dobra ideja i obično popijem tu vodu koja dođe uz kavu. Čaša vode se obično servira i uz kolače. Želite li vodu iz boce, morate je posebno naručiti.

  12. Thanks a lot for another friendly and useful reminder dear! It is indeed extremely important to drink water and stay hydrated. Last November I was actually rushed into the hospital after I got dehydrated. It was hard for me since it was the first and hopefully the last time I was rushed in the hospital. Thank God I was able to get through that experience. Though I was also quite glad because it reminded me again of yet another important lesson to stay or keep hydrated as always.
    Happy new year btw dearest! thanks a lot! :)

    love lots,

  20. Dear Ivana, first I want to tell you that I love your green jacket so much! And I agree: it is so important to drink water and the habit in your country is very clever and especially healthy that coffee is served with a glass of water. Personally I'm always very thrusty and I drink tons of water and tea. In the winter I prefer tea in general as during this season the cold water makes me coughing. Thanks for this important post and have a wonderful start in the New Year!

  21. I do try to drink more water but I have a bad habit of drinking sodas instead of water. Sometimes I have to remind myself again and again, it's really terrible and I should make more effort in drinking more water.

  34. We almost always get a glass of water with coffee here also. My dad had that happen today at our lunch. During this recent illness, I switched from Diet Pepsi to Powerade and it really seemed to help. Now I am mostly back to pop and cannot shake the end of the plague. Insert multiple coughs in the above for reality :) Very lovely shots too, dear!! Happy New Year!! Keep wet!

    It's great that having a glass of water without asking for it is so common there! Here you can ask for it but it's not always easy to get it refilled! With it being summer and being pregnant I'm drinking loads of water and find I drink it faster than the waiter or waitress can come by to ask for a refill, haha!

    Drinking more water is a great health tip :)

    Hope you have a happy new year!

  42. It's interesting how you mentioned glasses of water are often served with coffee over there - whether wanted or not - it reminds me of my previous trips through Europe when that was often the case! Happy New Year!! :)

  45. You are so right! It's true. I know that when I have a headache, often I have not drunk enough and gone to bed far too late- a lethal combination! I really liked the fact they served a cup of water with hot drinks in Croatia, really appreciated it!x

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
