Developing a healthy lifestyle is a daunting task when you think of all the aspects involved. Start small and pick one task to start with, my personal favorite is drinking more water.  Our bodies are made of 60% water and we regularly lose water when we use the restroom and sweat. 20% of our water intake comes from the food we eat and the other 80% comes from the beverages we consume. The Institute of Medicine suggests that men drink 13 glasses of water and women 9 glasses. One of the best ways to determine hydration is by examining the color of your urine. Light colored or clear urine means you are hydrated and your body has the right amount of water.



Why should you drink more water?

Drinking water regulates our body temperature and assists our kidneys to eliminate waste. As you get older your joints start to hurt, at least I know mine do, and water lubricates those joints and can help reduce pain. These are benefits that you may not notice right away but there are some benefits that will make everyone happy! Water can help brighten dull skin, help keep your weight in check and one glass of water before bed curbs your midnight snacking temptation. 37% of Americans think they are hungry when in reality they are thirsty. This causes overeating and weight gain.

When should you drink more water than recommended?
  • Exercise: When you exercise you sweat more and therefore you need
         to drink more water to replenish the water lost in your sweat. 
  • Illness: If you run a fever, have been vomiting or diarrhea you lose more water than normal. 
  • Pregnancy: You are drinking water for two. 

What happens when you don’t drink enough water?

Evidence suggests that inadequate water intake can increase the risk of disease. Sodas, coffee and alcohol make you urinate more, losing additional water. Fatigue, headaches, irritability, mental lag, sagging skin, weight gain, dry mouth, constipation and dizziness are all symptoms of dehydration.


Moral of the story… drink more water. Start with a little at a time, one glass after your cup of coffee and one glass before bed. Once you meet that goal then add to it. Drink a glass with lunch and a glass with dinner, that’s 4 glasses of water. I have tumblers that will remind you to drink 4 glasses of water every day.

Have a wonderful and blessed week!

Thank you for this informative post. I just realized how important water is in our body. Usually I just take 4-6 glasses a day. Sometimes I've got to experience the symptoms of dehydration. I've got to learn a lot in your post. I am looking forward for more of your posts.

I got scared after reading your article. Well, not because of the content, but the facts of not drinking water. I usually work in the office 9 hours a day and because of the busy task, I never had a time to drink water. Sometimes I can go home without drinking any. But, because you mentioned that water lubricates joint, it shocked me because I am feeling something weird with my knee and ankle, maybe that is the reason why. Since I do not have much exercise because of my busy schedule. I think I should drink a lot of water from now on. Thank you so much for this article. Awesome!

Water is a natural gift given to us by nature. Drinking water regularly in daily basis is the best way we can give to our bodies. Some of us drink it when we are thirsty and some of us drink it when we are fully hydrated. The surprising thing is that there are some people who don’t like drinking water at all. In fact, we need water to keep our health no matter who we are. I am glad you shared this reminders. I will surely take note of this matter.

Drinking water is excellent for your skin and it acts a natural anti aging supplement because water plumps up the pores and skin, inflicting wrinkles and pores to get filled in. Being a beautician in bodyclinic, I always recommend drinking at least 8 glass of water daily.
