Ever wonder how the heck your supposed to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces OF WATER ( Your body weight / 2 = total number of recommended ounces of water to drink daily)
Add an 8 ounce cup of water to your daily routine with ease.
First thing in the morning your body is dehydrated & hungry! (AKA the term break-fast)
SO, raise your hand if your are a coffee or tea person!!!
-Simply pour yourself a cold glass of water with your coffee & breakfast. Drink your water FIRST, then your coffee 😉 You will be more likely to finish your glass with a treat waiting behind you! BAM 8 ounces down before your day even starts! Trust me, your body will thank you!
& if that wasn’t convincing enough… here are some AMAZING benefits to reaching your daily recommended intake of water:
1. Increases Energy & Relieves Fatigue
Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!
Removes by-products of fat, reduces eating intake (by filling up your tummy if consumed prior to meals), reduces hunger (hello natural appetite suppressant!), raises your metabolism and has zero calories!
Gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections).
4. Improves Skin Complexion
Moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. Gets rid of wrinkles. It’s the best anti-aging treatment around! <– guys, when I’m dehydrated my forehead has wrinkles of someone three times my age… NO JOKE!
Aids in digestion as water is essential to digest your food and prevents constipation.
A water guzzler is less likely to get sick. And who wouldn’t rather feel healthy the majority of the time? Drinking plenty of water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks.
7. Natural Headache Remedy
Helps relieve and prevent headaches (migraines & back pains too!) which are commonly caused by dehydration. <–so worth trying… it doesn’t hurt you to try, and could prevent over taking pain meds.
8. Prevents Cramps & Sprains
Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely.
9. Puts You In A Good Mood
When the body is functioning at its best, you will feel great and be happy!
Water is FREE! Even if you choose bottled/filtered water, it’s STILL cheaper than that high sugar and fat-filled latte!
CHEERS 😉 GLUP GLUP GLUP ahhh…. refreshing!
Smile =) we live in the USA & have access to a mind blowing amount of FRESH CLEAN WATER. Soak in the blessing & hydrate! [even our toilet water is cleaner than most countries drinking water… swallow that!]
