Benefits…. Yes, you can find benefits in almost anything you want. And there is always 3 benefits of this and 5 benefits of that.
I have a series of three "10 Benefits".
My first series... WATER...
You have to decide what do you want to focus on...
Do you want to change or do you want to stay where you are? Looking at something that you know is good for you, but you don’t really want to make a change – you can see or hear ten thousand benefits about it but if you are not willing to make the change, the benefits means nothing.
We all know that drinking water is good for us. But why is it so difficult to drink enough water?
Is it the taste? Or have we just developed a taste for sugary drinks instead?
Like any food or drink, you have to develop a taste for it. You can train your brain to develop a liking for certain tastes. And the more you drink water, the more likely you are to develop a taste for it.
When you are ready to make a change, your brain is ready. And when you see and read good things like all the benefits, your brain is more likely to accept the change you are wanting to make.
The 10 benefits of drinking water:
1. Boost energy
Did I hear you say, more energy?
Dehydration can deplete your energy and is one of the main reasons you feel tired and exhausted, especially towards the end of the day. But drinking more water will give you…
2. Weight loss
Yes, you have heard me. Weight loss!
Drinking more water is a key to losing weight. Not only does it have zero calories, but it also is a natural appetite suppressant, reduces eating intake if consumed before meals, and also helps boost your metabolism – especially if your glass is icy cold. Because of this, your body must work extra hard to warm the water up, meaning….
Burning a few extra calories in the process! Awesome!!!
3. Stress relief
Stressed? Me? Almost all the time!
Approximately 70% to 80% of your brain is made up of water. If you’re dehydrated, your body and your mind are stressed. Also, the body is functioning at its best when properly hydrated, which helps you…
feel great and contributes to your happiness.
4. Improved fitness
Fitness doesn't come easy, so every little bit helps.
Drinking water helps prevent muscle cramps and lubricates the body’s joints. When you’re well hydrated, you can…
exercise for extended periods of time at optimum performance.
5. Better skin
Drinking water hydrates skin cells and nourishes them.
It is making your face look younger. It also flushes out toxins and improves circulation and blood flow, helping your skin glow.
Dehydration brings out the fine lines and wrinkles in your face!
So, keeping hydrated will do wonders to making your skin look its best! Making you look young and beautiful.
6. Regular digestion
Water helps break up particles of waste in your body and helps pass them smoothly through your digestive tract. Dehydration leaves your colon dry, making it difficult to pass waste.
7. Gets rid of impurities
Drinking plenty of water gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections). Specifically it dilutes the impurities in your urine that can build up to create kidney stones.
8. Boost immunity
Regularly drinking enough water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks. Also, a well hydrated body is one that is put in a position to operate at its best!
9. Headache remedy
A lot of headaches and body pains are as a result of being dehydrated. Hydrate your body well to either prevent or get rid of these aches.
The most important one of all?
10. SAVE MONEY!
Water is readily available and in most cases, free! Even bottled water and filtered water is cheaper than sugary drinks and sodas.
