Drinking water is one of the best things humans can do for themselves. Why? Well, we need water. And when we don’t get water, a whole stew of problems can arise. I’m getting thirsty just thinking about the health benefits.
Water helps every part of the body, from your head down to your feet. So, let’s start with the head. Firstly, water can prevent headaches. When people get dehydrated, they can often get a splitting pain in their heads. So, drink water to prevent headaches or if you are prone to headaches.
Water also gives your brain energy. If you are feeling tired or groggy, drinking that H2O can wake you up and help you focus on whatever you are doing. Finally, water is also good for your complexion. If you want to get rid of acne or dry skin, drink more water and your face will glow!
Let’s move down to the torso. Water flushes out toxins and keeps your gut regular, so that your system can work properly. It also helps you maintain a healthy and consistent weight. Water can even lead to weight loss if you don’t drink it regularly and you suddenly start to do so.
Last but not least, water is great for your extremities as well. It can prevent your muscles from cramping up, and even keep your joints from spraining.
It can be hard to remember to drink water, but if you keep a water bottle with you all the time then you are more likely to drink. Try putting a straw in your water bottle to encourage you- there is something fun about drinking out of a straw that makes people want to hydrate.
