Why You Should Be Drinking More

You’ve always heard that drinking water is essential. But do you know why?

First of all your body is sixty percent of water, and your blood is ninety percent water. So, your body contains a lot of water in it. Water should be an essential part of your daily routine.

If you’ve ever woke up one morning and found out you’ve gained five pounds in one night, don’t panic.

You’ve probably gained water weight. That means either you probably ate food with a lot of sodium and you didn’t drink enough water.

The only way to lose that water weight is to drink water.

Water flushes your body and the only way for that to happen is to drink more water.

Other benefits of drinking water are:

-It delivers oxygen throughout your body

-It lubricates your joints

-It regulates body temperature

-It makes sure your digestive system works

-It prevents kidney damage

Being healthy is not only about losing weight. Although losing weight puts you on the right track to becoming a healthier you, it is only a part of the process.

Staying active, eating a healthy and balanced meal, sleeping, controlling your stress levels and drinking water all essential to keeping you healthy and helping you to live a long healthy life!

You’re probably asking yourself how much water should I drink? Well, you should drink half of your body weight in ounces.

If you’re 300lbs then you should drink 150 oz per day.

I know this may sound like a lot. Especially if you’re not someone who hasn’t really drunk a lot of water before.

But if you’re having trouble drinking water try drinking mineral water, sparkling water, or by even adding flavor into your waters until you can actually start to drink plain old water.

Remember the first step is trying and the next step is not giving up when things get hard!

Keep going! If no one else believes in you know that I do. You’ve got this!
