An Amazing Person Called Mom #MomsWisdom

This article is sponsored by Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water

I am already staying for half a year here in San Jose and I can say I miss my mom terribly, most especially now that we have moved into a new home. She is in every essence a homemaker, and in the deep part of me I wanted to be like her, a super mom who knows how to do everything-almost anything.

My mom had been a stay at home one and so I spent each and every day of my childhood with her beside me all the time. This is maybe one reason I chose to stay at home now. While growing up, she taught/trained me how to do the different household chores, one thing I didn’t understand that time but greatly appreciate now.

“A woman should know how to do things inside the house, so that when she gets marry and have kids, she will be able to raise a good and orderly home…”


Mom is a good cook and always prepares hearty and healthy meals for us. She instilled the importance of eating vegetables and that is why we never grew up as picky eaters. Aside from that, she imposed a “no soda” policy at home, only water (or juice) for Healthy Family Hydration. We rarely have soda, only if we dine out or maybe during special occasions one thing that I still carry til now. I still follow these these things and have actually passed it on to my daughter.

This is reason why I miss her now, most especially that summer is here, I can almost hear her, relaying to me the Importance of Hydration. Mom’s wisdom never really runs out of time, my only wish is that I can be like her.

What about you, what are your mom’s pure wisdom advice for a healthy life  that you still carry until now?


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.

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.

Here are some Hydration Tips for the Whole Family :

  • Did you know that 60% of an adult body is water? Keep it well hydrated by drinking enough water!
  • In addition to drinking plain water every day, eating foods with high moisture content—such as fruits and vegetables—could be a good way to increase total water consumption. Water constitutes 90% of most fruits and vegetables and about 50% of meats.
  • Drink water instead of sugary drinks when you’re thirsty. Regular soda, energy or sports drinks, and other sweet drinks usually contain added sugar. To manage your daily calorie intake, sip water or other drinks with few or no calories.
  • Drink water with and between your meals. Adults and children take in about 400 calories per day as beverages—drinking water can help you manage your calorie intakes.
  • Water is a great choice when it comes to daily hydration. Have ready-to-go containers filled with water available in the refrigerator. Place them in lunch boxes or backpacks for easy access when kids are away from home.

    Sounds like a great mom! Hydration is so important. I live in the desert so there is no lack of hydration in our home!

    Mom does know best, she taught me so many life lessons that I still use today. And of course, drinking lots of water was one of those lessons!

    My mom always told me to drink tons of water – it keeps your skin glowing and you feeling great! Moms have the best advice!

    Awww…aren’t moms the best? Of course, I’m slightly biased because I am a mom, but it just seems that my mom can do everything (and way better than I ever could). She always taught us to work hard and make sure that we could support ourselves…and sure enough, she helped put me through law school and my sister through a graduate program. Then she got her Ph.D. at nearly 60 years old. I hope to be half as inspiring to my own kids!

    That’s a good one because I watched my brother get so sick from being dehydrated as a child all the time! He just seemed to really, really need a lot of water to keep him going, more than the average kid. I try to drink continuously, not just when thirsty. Great advice here!
