- Be less cranky.
Research says dehydration can affect your mood and make you grumpy and confused, drinking water can allow you to think clearer and be happier by drinking more water.
- Perform better.
Proper hydration contributes to increased athletic performance. Water composes 75% of our muscle tissue. Dehydration can lead to weakness, fatigue, dizziness, and electrolyte imbalance.
- Lose weight.
Sometimes we think we are hungry, when actually we are thirsty. Our body just starts turning on all the alarms when we ignore it, staying hydrated can serve as an appetite suppressant and help with weight loss.
- Have less joint pain.
Drinking water can reduce pain in your joints by keeping the cartilage soft and hydrated. This is actually how glucosamine helps reduce joint pain, by aiding in cartilage’s absorption of water.
- Make your skin glow.
Our skin is the largest organ in our body. Regular and plentiful water consumption can improve the colour and texture of your skin by keeping it building new cells properly. Drinking water also helps the skin do its job of regulating the body’s temperature through sweating.
Few rules to make sure you stay hydrated
- Drink half your bodyweight in ounces of water (if you weight 160lbs, drink 80oz of water each day).
- Carry a bottle everywhere with you as a reminder to keep drinking.
- Eat raw fruits and vegetables – they are dense in water. You can get water from food, not just from beverages.
