One of the most simple but effective ways of improving your general health and well-being is by drinking more good ol’ H20. Even knowing this, many people don’t get the amount of water that they need every day.
There are plenty of ways of that you can increase your water consumption, from trying flavorings like lime water to setting regular reminders on your phone so you don’t forget to hydrate. Here are just a few of the benefits that drinking more water can provide.
Increased Feelings of Energy
If you have noticed that you always seem to feel tired and lethargic, it may simply be because you are not drinking enough water. Our brains are made up of a lot of water which we need to replace on a regular basis. If you don’t do this, you are more likely to find that you have low energy and reduced concentration. Just imagine what you could accomplish if you don’t feel tired all the time!
Promotion of Weight Loss
Many of us are trying to lose weight, but one of the reasons why you may be struggling is a lack of water. After all, water has been shown to remove some of the by-products of fat, and reduce your overall food intake simply by keeping your stomach full. As well as this, it also helps to speed up your metabolism and, of course, there are no calories to worry about!
Improved Skin Complexion
Bad skin is caused by numerous factors, but a lack of hydration in the body certainly doesn’t help at all. Like all cells in the body, skin cells are largely made up of water. Without enough of this, they will not function at their best. Dry skin is more likely to show cracks and wrinkles, which is why you should couple a good moisturizing routine with consuming plenty of water on a daily basis.
Boosting of the Immune System
Keeping your body well-hydrated has a major positive impact on your immune system. First of all, it helps to keep your blood oxygenated and also flushes toxins out of your system. We have already talked about the benefits to your metabolism, and there is also plenty of evidence that water can treat a whole host of common ailments including arthritis, insomnia and depression.
Reducing Number and Severity of Headaches
You have probably noticed that you get headaches when you have not hydrated properly – particularly after exercise or when you have been out in the hot sun. You can reduce the frequency and severity of these pains by ensuring that you drink plenty of water, especially when you are losing a lot of fluids from your body through sweating.
These five reasons are just a few of the main ones that you should make drinking water a priority in your life. After just a few days, you are likely to notice some immediate benefits, but the long-term ones are also significant.
