Why Drinking water is important

Drinking water has so many benefits:

  • Increases brain power and gives you energy.  Our brains are made up of over 70% water so drinking it will help you keep focused, increase your concentration and stay alert so you will have more energy.
  • Promotes healthy weight management – water can aid as an appetite suppressant and improve metabolism.
  • Flush out toxins.
  • It improves your skin and complexion. If you are not drinking enough water your skin will look dry and dull.
  • Helps with constipation – drinking water will keep you regular.
  • Prevents headaches.
  • Prevents cramps and sprains.
  • Hangovers can be limited by drinking a glass of water with each alcoholic drink.  Also,  keep yourself hydrated the day you are going out and of course the day after.

Tips to drink more water

  • If you don’t like the taste or find it boring try adding mint, lemon, cucumber or orange slices to your water.
  • If you prefer sparkling – drink it.
  • If it is a case that you just keep forgetting just fill a large 2-liter jug or water bottle and aim to get through it each day.
  • Bring a glass of water with you to bed and make yourself drink the full glass before you get out of bed the next morning.
  • Drink herbal tea instead of coffee or tea.
  • Another tip if you enjoy a glass of wine why not pour your water into a wine glass so while watching TV  sip on the water in the wine glass it tricks the brain into thinking you are enjoying a glass of wine.

Maybe at the start, you will be making a few trips to the toilet but soon your body will get used to this and it will subside.
