As the temperatures start creeping up and the humidity rises, my consumption of water goes through the roof. Especially if you workout or work period outside – you need to be hydrating throughout the day. Water makes up approximately 70% of your body! Think about that… as most of us probably don’t drink water I wanted to pose some food for thought. Drinking more water will:
Flushes out toxins and waste through urination and sweat.
It improves your complexion – hello radiant glow!
Increases energy! Also helps you focus. Your brain is mostly water… hydrate it for better concentration.
Maintains regularity and prevents constipation.
Water removes by products of fat, reduces hunger (many times you aren’t hungry you are just thirsty) and helps boost metabolism. Always drink a nice big glass of water before you eat.
Naturally helps reduce headaches – as many are caused by dehydration.
Drinking plenty of water helps joints and muscles lubricated for less joint pain or strain.
Most people complain that water is boring but it doesn’t have to be! Adding fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices to water and refrigerating overnight can spark up your bland water making it more tempting to guzzle more throughout the day.
