Benefits-of-Drinking-WaterYou should ask yourself – do you have a healthy diet? How healthy are you? Do you exercise on a regular basis? Do you get enough sleep every day? Do you drink at least eight glasses of water a day?

You should know that our body is our temple! We need to take care of our body and we need to have a healthy life. Did you know that a over 60% of Americans are overweight or obese? That is insane! You need to think of your body as your physical shell to take you during your life. And you should know that your shell will wear out quickly if you frequently abuse it with unhealthy food. Although you can look okay on the outside, but on the inside, you could have problems because your arteries are getting blocked-up with arterial plaque and cholesterol. That can be really bad!

Life is beautiful and you do not want to bog yourself down with needless health problems. Your vital organs (heart, lungs, kidney, liver, gall bladder, intestines, and stomach) can work well today, butwater they maybe won’t tomorrow. So, do not take your good health today for granted. You need to take proper care of your body.

You need to know that good health is not just about exercise and healthy eating – also, it includes having a healthy self-image, positive mental health and a healthy lifestyle. We are going to show you in this article two the most important tips to live your life healthier.

You must drink more water. A lot of us do not drink enough water every day. And water is necessary for our body to function. Did you know that over sixty percent of our body is made up of water? If you didn’t know water is needed to remove waste, perform our body functions and carry oxygen and nutrients around our body. As we lose water every day through urine, perspiration and breathing, bowel movements – we need to refill our water intake.

Additionally, drinking more water alone truly helps in losing weight. On one study they performed amongst obese/overweight people that water drinkers lose five more pounds than a control group. It is believed that because of drinking more water, it helps to fill your stomach, making you less likely to overeat and less hungry. We agree with that, and we have an added take that your body tries to maintain whatever water you take when you do not take in sufficient water, and that could lead to increase in weight. When you frequently drink water, your body knows that it is going to get its supply of fluids, so it does not try to maintain more water.

The amount of water we need is depends on a variety of factors such as our physical activity, the humidity and your weight, but usually we need eight glasses of water intake per day! As food intake contributes about twenty percent of our fluid intake, that means that we need to drink about eight to ten glasses per day! How you could know that you are hydrated – your urine has to be slightly yellow or colorless. And if it is not like that, well you are not getting enough water! Some other signs include: dry mouth, dry lips and little urination. Now, go get some water after you have read this article.
