My goal to drink more water


I know that drinking water is a huge boost to healthier living and helping loose weight. I thought maybe a little in depth researh may encourage me to do so.this is some information found:

  1. Water is absolutely essential to the human body’s survival. A person can live for about a month without food, but only about a week without water.
  2. Water helps to maintain healthy body weight by increasing metabolism and regulating appetite.
  3. Water leads to increased energy levels. The most common cause of daytime fatigue is actually mild dehydration.
  4. Drinking adequate amounts of water can decrease the risk of certain types of cancers, including colon cancer, bladder cancer, and breast cancer.
  5. For a majority of sufferers, drinking water can significantly reduce joint and/or back pain.
  6. Water leads to overall greater health by flushing out wastes and bacteria that can cause disease.
  7. Water can prevent and alleviate headaches.
  8. Water naturally moisturizes skin and ensures proper cellular formation underneath layers of skin to give it a healthy, glowing appearance.
  9. Water aids in the digestion process and prevents constipation.
  10. Water is the primary mode of transportation for all nutrients in the body and is essential for proper circulation.

Those are just a few reasons to drink up that I came across on google. ;) Im sure there is a million other reasons to drink up.  This post is making me very thirsty!!

Please do share if you have some more reasons water is good for us. I would love to hear more. The more good things I hear the more I am motivated to keep hydrated with the right thing. I am trying to say goodbye to my #1 addictions (Coffee and diet cola) , which I have yet to do...that is a whole other post...
