You’ve heard it all your life and we want to reiterate just how important it is to drink water. Here are our 3 top reasons why drinking enough water is beneficial to your health.
- Water helps increase your energy and focus. Since our bodies are made up of roughly 60% water, our organs thrive when we’re consuming H2O, especially when it comes to the brain. When you’re hydrated, you’re able to think more clearly and concentrate with an added bonus of increasing your energy!
- Water helps promote weight loss. Often time, when we’re craving salty or sweet foods, it’s actually our bodies telling us that we’re dehydrated. By making sure you’re drinking enough water, not only will you be able to flush out by-products of fat, you’ll also significantly reduce your cravings. If you make sure to drink plenty of water before meals, you’re also less likely to overeat.
- Water helps improve your skin complexion; drinking enough water keeps your skin hydrated and helps flush out harmful toxins in your body, which can help improve eczema, dry skin, wrinkles and acne!
There are plenty more reasons to stay hydrated so always make sure to have a bottle of water near you – in your car, by your desk, in your bag, by your bed and you’ll be a lot more likely to drink throughout the day. If you’re bored of regular water, try jazzing it up with lemons, limes, oranges, mint, cucumbers or even watermelon! Yum!
