Many clients of mine seem to battle to drink enough water. Why is it so important to keep drinking?
What does water actually do inside your body?
- Water flushes out toxins and helps move waste
- Water helps maintain body termperature, cooling you down
- Water makes up a lot of the blood and carries oxygen to your cells
- Water helps to maintain healthy weight levels
Try to drink up 8-10 glasses of water a day. More if you do exercise, or are feverish. Urinary tract or bladder problems are often noticeable if you do not drink enough. If you feel hungry it is often a sign that you need water, not food. So drink water first.
I always make sure my children drink a glass of water before breakfast. Personally, I try to start the day with one pint or warm water, that is easy to drink. Then I know I am off to a good start.
How to up your intake:
Always have a water bottle
Add lemon or lime to give flavour, bottled flavour water does not count
Eat water rich fruits like cumcumber, and watermelon.
