What if by grabbing another drink you would increase your energy levels, improve the quality of your skin, keep your muscles and joints lubricated, improve your overall health, make you look younger, and prevent you from overeating? Well take a sip of water, cause water is the magic potion that does all that. With all the technological advances no one has come up with a better liquid, but we tend to replace are water drinking with sodas, coffee, and alcohol.
Proper hydration regulates appetite, because often, when people think they are hungry, the signal is actually thirst. Being properly hydrated can also help you accomplish 25 percent more. Drink 2 cups of water first thing in the morning. This will re-hydrate you after a night of sleep and prepare your digestive juices for a yummy breakfast.
Often, during your day, if you don't have a water bottle with you, you'll not get enough to drink. Invest in a stainless steel bottle that you can refill during the day. I love my Klean Kanteen and take it everywhere. It helps me stay hydrated, and I'm also helping the environment by not using plastic bottles that add to the landfills. The bottles come in a variety of colors and sizes. You can find them at REI or buy them online at http://www.kleankanteen.com/.
So, this week, drink more. Your body will thank you!
