3 Ways Drinking Water Can Change Your Life
By Genevieve Cunningham
Water is so good for the body and mind. This isn’t news, right? Most people are aware of the incredible power of water on your health … and the negative impact that too little water can make. But what, exactly, does water do to make your health better? To change your health and your life for the better, take a look at these great reasons to drink more water every day.
It Can Clear the Skin
This may not feel like it’s change your life worthy, but anyone who suffers from severe acne will tell you that clear skin is a serious game changer. When you drink more water, the body is better able to flush toxins from the body. This means getting rid of dirt, germs, and other grime that lead to blemishes. If you’re not so comfortable with the skin you’re in, give more water a try and see what happens.
It Can Help With Weight Loss
Water helps to flush out the digestive tract, which can eventually lead to weight loss. Along with this elimination factor, it can also keep the stomach feeling full. The fuller the stomach feels, the less food you’re likely to eat, and the lower you can keep your overall calorie count. Most fitness professionals agree that when it comes to weight loss, water is a very important factor. So how can this change your life? Any time you’re able to lose weight -- especially if the amount is significant -- you’ll likely feel better about your body and entire life.
It Can Help You Focus
You know that foggy brained feeling? The one that means you forget what you’re looking for as soon as you enter a room? Believe it or not, that feeling can be exacerbated by dehydration. By drinking more water, you may be able to rehydrate the body and improve concentration. This can lead to enhanced performance at home, work, and play. It can also mean that you’re more fully aware each moment, allowing you to be present in each of life’s passing memories.
If you’re not getting enough water, it’s time to make it a priority. Count your cups, carry a water bottle, or do whatever it takes to keep yourself hydrated. Getting more H2O into your body and life can make significant changes for a happier, healthier, more productive life.
