Why You Should Drink More Water
In a world where our brain, blood, and muscles are made of over 75% water, it is difficult to ignore the importance of water in relation to our overall health. Most people may know that water is vital, but what is relatively overlooked is how beneficial water can be for our everyday living, especially if you are concerned about fitness, skincare, hair-care and numerous other facets of health.
Helping your digestion is just one of many bodily functions water assists. If you are concerned about your weight, drinking cold water each morning will speed up your metabolism. When your metabolism is fast, you are able to break down food quicker. Calories are also burned easier so, in effect you are able to shed pounds faster.
Your body has trouble distinguishing hunger from thirst, so a useful tip is if you feel hungry, drink two glasses of water and wait about 20-30 minutes and see if you are still hungry. You may find that the water fills you up just as the food would. This will keep you from eating unnecessary calories, and will cleanse the colon for easier digestion.
Skin & Haircare
One of, if not the greatest benefit of drinking extra water each day, is it will eliminate toxins from your body. These toxins are what disrupt the natural growth and reparation of your skin and hair.
Drinking water will keep your skin and hair hydrated, clean and smooth. Well, technically it keeps ALL of your cells hydrated, but for skin, water will raise elasticity and increase blood flow through the capillaries in the skin. For hair, water is the ultimate moisturizer and will even promote hair growth. Water is great at keeping all of our organs hydrated and energized. When we are dehydrated, the lack of water is felt, if not already visible…after all, the skin is our largest organ in our body!
It is proven that if a person gets just 1% dehydrated, they will suffer from fatigue and weakness. When you lack water, organs such as your heart have to work extra to pump out oxygenated blood to all cells. This will tire your other vital organs as well, making you more exhausted.
Additionally, your brain requires water to stay energized, so if you aren’t drinking enough water, your attention span is lower and you forget things easily. Water provides higher creativity and thought clarity throughout the day- something we all could use!
To determine a safe and ideal amount of water to drink each day, you convert your weight into ounces, and divide that number by 2. For example, if you weigh 150 lbs., you would do 150 ÷ 2, which would give you 75. This means that for a person who weighs 150 lbs., you should drink 75 ounces of water per day. This sounds like a lot of water, and will take some getting used to, but the rewards are almost instantly noticeable, and certainly well worth it.
Put simply, drinking water will improve every function in your body. Taking your water consumption seriously is something that will benefit you in every way possible. Remember, we are made of 70% water, and it is precisely water which keeps us healthy mentally and physically. Put down the soda, coffee, and juices, and instead pick up a glass or bottle of water…your body will thank you, and you will begin feeling better in no time!
