Our bodies are roughly 60% water, so it’s not surprising that we don’t feel our best when we haven't drank enough of the stuff! It helps to balance your fluid levels, regulate your body temperature and transports nutrients around your body! But with all the other options available to us, many of us would much rather choose tea, coffee or a fizzy drink over simply turning on the tap. Here are just some of the amazing benefits you could gain from swapping your diet coke habit for a glass of H2O...
Struggling to get through your mounting inbox? The reason might be dehydration! Drinking more water will get you feeling focused and back on the top of your game.
Helps Aid Weight Loss
Not only can water reduce hunger and keep you feeling fuller for longer, but it's also been shown to help raise your metabolism! Of course, it's also calorie-free, which cannot be said for your average Frappuccino order!
Helps Fight Tiredness
If you’re not keeping yourself properly hydrated, don’t be surprised if you’re ready to fall asleep at your desk by mid-afternoon. Before you reach for yet another cup of coffee, try grabbing a glass of water to help fight that mid-afternoon tiredness.
Our skin is the largest organ in our body, so it’s unsurprising that drinking more water can improve both the colour and texture of your skin. This is because it helps your skin to build new cells and also helps regulate the body’s temperature through sweat. It might not sound glamorous, but it will certainly do wonders for making you glow!
Flushes Out Toxins
There’s a reason that when you get sick people always advise you to drink lots of water! Water gets everything in your body moving and helps to flood out any pesky toxins that are causing you to feel under the weather.
Prevents Headaches & Cramps
A long day at the office drinking several cups of coffee and not enough water combined with spending hours staring at your laptop screen is the recipe for a pounding head. Often these headaches are caused by dehydration, so drinking more water can alleviate this irritating pain. Drank a few too many G&T’s last night? It’s great for getting rid of that lingering hangover too!
Keeps You Regular!
If you’ve been having trouble with your digestion or suffer from constipation, one of the first things to try is drinking more water. Upping your hydration adds more water to the colon, keeping things… running smoothly!
The cost of sneaking out of the office to grab a fizzy drink or a fancy juice might not seem like much, but it soon adds up. Be kind to your bank balance and your body by heading to the tap instead of the corner shop!
