Water, the secret of life


According to the recent investigations performed by scientists, 70% of the human being’s body mass is composed of water. Thus, we can openly state how important this liquid is for us.

You have probably read or heard somewhere these figures, it’s a natural resource that we will not be able to survive without. The longest you can survive without eating is around 21 days (3 weeks), however, when it comes to water, it is a totally different story. You can only live without drinking any water from 3 to 5 days, depending on the situation.


The importance of water for the human species:

It essential maintaining high energy levels and cleansing our bodies from toxins.

On the other hand, we tend to lose water from our bodies on a daily basis through bowel movement, respiration, and perspiration. If you exercise often, then you already know that physical effort makes you start sweating and increases respiration.

And finally, we need it to revitalize our skin because due to exposure to the sun, it gets dry.


Sometimes, you might feel lethargic, sluggish and just completely unfocused. This might happen due to you not drinking enough water. Your body is in need of water to help with fatigue, which can be of both – physical and mental nature. When you’re mentally fatigued, you have decreased attention and feel overall sleepier. On the other hand, physical fatigue will make your muscles ache. That’s why if you ever feel that your mouth (or throat) or eyes are dry, then you should definitely go drink plenty of water.


If we examine water further, then we can easily notice that it’s an essential and vital element, not only for humans and animals in general but plants as well. Without it, plants would cease to exist, which will result in a deficit of oxygen in the atmosphere, which would have led to the extinction of many species.



Furthermore, water plays many different roles other than making our planet habitable; we use water for many different purposes like cooking, showering/bathing, and washing. So we know for a fact that it is an indispensable tool that we use in our day to day life.


Next, water is not only helpful for farming and agriculture, which provides food and fuel for us, but it is also an excellent energy resource. It is clean and can be used to power up towns and villages. It is renewable, which means that it is are naturally replenished on a human timescale, unlike petrol.


Finally, water can also be used for entertainment purposes! It is used in swimming pools and water parks, which are amazing ways to have fun, unplug and unwind.


Unfortunately, we human beings adopt negative behaviors that lead to the pollution of this vital resource, we waste it and pollute it. And if we are not careful then we are going to leave a huge negative impact on the environment, which will backfire and affect us.


We must make sure that we’re installing a water-efficient system that preserves water and take conscious action to help not pollute it.


For example, you can:

  • Limit washing your car to once per week instead of multiple time.
  • Stop using the toilet as a trash basket.
  • Stop pouring fat from cooking or any other type of oil, or grease down the sink. This will result in less pollution and easier water recycling and reuse.


We must be aware of how we are using our resources, and make sure that we are not wasting them, to avoid severe consequences, like water scarcity is the lack of fresh water resources to meet water demand.

And finally, we need to understand how important it is for our planet.

How climbing mountains can change your life


 “Mountains are the beginning and the end of all natural scenery.” – John Ruskin

Adventure traveling is one of the most fulfilling experience a person can have, it consists of doing an activity that requires a leap of faith, where you try something new, something challenging, where you feel your heart racing by just thinking about it.

One of the best adventures travels you can take part in is climbing a mountain, the benefits you are going to get and the feelings you’re going to experience will change your mind and life forever.

First of all, let’s start with the obvious, climbing a mountain will make you become the fittest version of yourself. It’s a physically demanding activity that will require your body to adapt and grow. That’s why ideally you are going to start training for around 6 months before you actually climb the mountain. Having the goal of climbing a mountain will motivate you to exercise hard and give it your all during every workout.  During every workout, you will work out with a purpose, a vision that will propel you forward and help you get up when you feel like quitting.

Pay attention to the wide varieties of trees. Coquitlam based Arborist Y.B. suggested that his clients come from all corners of the planet astounded by the majestic trees in Vancouver’s nature sceneries. Here is a link to his home page: https://www.aesthetictree.ca/coquitlam-tree/.

Patience is a Virtue

The process will make you learn patience. You do not climb a mountain and reach the top quickly by running, but by taking small consistent steps while having a laser-like focus on the goal.

Your mind will start playing games, suggesting that this is incredibly hard and that you should quit. You will start questioning why you are even doing this. If you actually manage to overcome this little voice, then reaching the peak is not an idea, but a possibility. This will teach you persistence, an attribute that will benefit you in almost every area of your life… Climbing a mountain is far from easy, it is not only physically demanding but also mentally challenging.


Social Life in Nature

You will most likely meet new people who are strong, confident and positive that you can call your friends. Climbing mountains is not a solo sport. You will have other people besides you who share the same goal, the goal of wanting to see what the top looks like and seeing it with their own eyes; instead of imagining it. You will find yourself roped together as you work up the mountain not as individuals but as a team.

When you climb a mountain, you give yourself the opportunity to capture the beauty and allure of life, you find peacefulness up there, at the top.

Climbing a mountain will test your spirit. They will bring out both the best and your worst in you. You will learn that they are unforgiving, impersonal and answer to no higher authority.

Through climbing, you will become more self-reliant. You will increase your confidence. The process will also humble you, while also learning to overcome fear and push past it.

Climbing a Mountain will teach you numerous lessons, and you will be able to transfer most of them to your everyday life.



In conclusion

Climbing a mountain is not only about you, and how you are challenging yourself, it is also about meeting new people, partnering up and sharing some “that was close” and close call moments. It is also about you reaching the summit and finally seeing what has been described in the books and by people. You feel accomplished, powerful and that you are unstoppable. Finally, you actually experience the term “breathtaking”.


There are many reasons to climb a mountain, however, perhaps to answer the question of why should one climb a mountain can only be answered by yourself, because, in the end, only you can determine the answer.

“It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” —Edmund Hillary
