Staying Hydrated

Are you drinking enough water?

Doctors recommend that most people drink at least 6-8 eight-ounce glasses of water per day. This can be a struggle, but it is essential for your body to function properly. Not only does water help your body function, but it also provides many other benefits. I’m going to explain a few reasons why drinking water is so important and helpful.

Increases Weight Loss

Drinking water helps you feel fuller, which causes you to eat less. This will help increase your weight loss.

Gets rid of Toxins

Making sure you get enough water each day is important as it helps rid your body of wastes and toxins.

Boosts Immune System

This point is especially essential since it is cold and flu season! Getting your daily water intake can help you fight off illness.

Better Skin

Staying hydrated can help your skin and prevent dryness. It can also help heal chapped lips, which are commonly caused by dehydration.

Reduces Fatigue

It’s not just coffee that can give you that extra energy boost! One of the most common causes of fatigue is dehydration. Making sure your body gets enough water each day is essential to maintaining your energy level.

Now that we have discussed the benefits of drinking water, let’s talk about some easy steps you can take to increase your daily water intake. This is something I have struggled with, and I still have to remind myself to drink more water. The best idea I have come up with for myself is keeping a water bottle with me throughout the day. This strategy helps because carrying a water bottle around is a constant reminder that you should be drinking water. I also try to take a sip and refill if needed every time I pass a water fountain. For some people, it might be a good idea to get a head start by drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning before starting the day or having coffee.

If you don’t like water, drinking 6-8 eight-ounce glasses of it each day might seem very challenging. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t find a way to accomplish this. You can find flavored water packets at almost any drugstore that will give your water a different flavor. Although water is the best choice of beverage to hydrate with, others can be used to keep yourself hydrated if need be. Overall, taking these small steps can help you make sure you are getting enough water each day. Drinking water can be quite easy and has a lot of overall health benefits. I hope this will help motivate you to stay hydrated!
