Your Body With and Without Enough Water

By Alexis Mills

We have all experienced what it feels like when we don't drink enough water. The hard part is that people don't always know they are feeling dehydrated. Just take a look at the difference between our body when we are properly hydrated and not drinking enough water.

Our Body Without Enough Water

If you feel groggy, off, and hungry, that could mean that you need to drink more water. It's not a secret that we need to drink water every day because it's essential for our whole body to function properly. But when we don't get enough, the effects are drastic on our body.

  • Bad skin - This could mean you see signs of acne, dry skin, under-eye bags, and more apparent wrinkles. Keeping yourself hydrated keeps yourself having a healthy, youthful glow.
  • Muscle cramps -When your body is giving you spasm muscle cramps, part of it is a sign to stay hydrated.
  • Trouble focusing - Your brain is made of about 80 percent water, so when it doesn't have enough it takes a lot longer to get things done. Since you don't have what it needs to function at its best, without sufficient water your brain function suffers.
  • Feeling lethargic - While there are many reasons you are feeling more tired than usual, not drinking adequate water is definitely one of them. It makes the body work even harder to break down food, making your energy low.
  • More susceptible to injuries-Fluid is essential for keeping your body temperature regulated and is used as lubrication for joints and organs.

Our Body With Enough Water

Staying hydrated is so important and if you don't believe me after reading how it negatively effects your body, see below for the benefits your body gets from being hydrated. The above symptoms from being dehydrated will be reversed and you will feel the difference.

  • Reliable digestion - Drinking water regularly keeps your digestive system working properly. If you are feeling bloated, you probably really need to drink some water as soon as possible.
  • Healthy skin, hair, and nails - Water keeps the skin looking smooth and wrinkle-free.
  • Weight loss - Commonly people mistake thirst for hunger and will snack instead of drinking some fluids. Proper hydration works as an appetite suppressant and help your body manage a healthy weight.
  • Improved memory - Since your brain is very dependent on water, when hydrated, your brain function increases. Your focus, memory and ability to get tasks done efficiently will significantly improve.

If you do your own research you will find countless more benefits for your body such as being in a better mood, needing to eat fewer calories to be full, and functioning stronger and faster. Water is the most important element you can incorporate into your health, so don't forget this simple task in your daily routine.
