Looking for Improved Health? Try Water!
By Donna Stark
After describing how you have been dealing with certain health problems, such as headaches, indigestion, and heartburn, your doctor will almost always ask, "Are you drinking enough water?" And for good reason too! From the very top of your head to the tips of your toes, water is one of the main things that keep your body healthy. Unfortunately, many people find that drinking the recommended amount of water is hard to do, and if you are anything like them, you are probably walking around more dehydrated than you thought. Fortunately, that's an easy fix. Take a look at the following suggestions on how you can include more water in your daily lifestyle.
Add Fun Flavors
Sometimes, the only thing stopping us from drinking water isn't the flavor, but rather the lack of flavor, right? A great way to start including more water into your diet is to infuse some flavor by adding fruits and vegetables to your pitcher. With endless possibilities and choices of what you can add to your water, consuming a healthy amount will come naturally.
Drink Water Between Meals
It sounds simple, right? Drinking a glass of water in between meals and snacks is a great way to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day, but that's not all! Drinking water between meals can help your body absorb more nutrients and digest your food easier. Also, by creating a routine of drinking water, you are more likely to establish it as a lifelong habit.
Make More Soups For Dinner
You certainly don't need cold, snowy weather, or a high fever and runny nose to enjoy a hot bowl of soup! Soup is a perfect option for every month of the year. In addition to being a quick and easy meal, and providing tons of vitamins and nutrients, soup will also help to keep you hydrated.
Increase Fruit Intake
Having plenty of fruit in the house ready to snack on is one of the best decisions you can make for your overall health and wellness. Rich in water, fruit such as watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, and peaches can help to rehydrate you as well as provide your body with the vitamins it needs to keep going.
More Water, Better Health
Drinking the recommended amount of water every day will increase energy, help alleviate pain, and improve your overall health and wellness. And with some simple changes to your daily routine, it's easier than you think to start adding more of it into your life. So, start making those changes today and the next time your doctor asks, "Are you drinking enough water?", get ready to respond with a resounding "Yes!"
