Why 'Drinking more water' should be your New Year's resolution

 

Make drinking more water your New Year's resolution 

We all know that drinking water is good for us but do you really know the reasons why it is good for you, your body and your overall health?

1. Promotes increased productivity and energy

If you feel yourself getting tired, losing concentration and are unable to focus, the cause may be that you are dehydrated. Dehydration can cause you to lose brain power which impairs your performance.

Have a glass of water or bottle at your desk or with you in your bag to stop the chance of getting dehydrated during the times when you need it most.

2. Helps to rid the body of harmful toxins

Harmful toxins enter our body through what we eat and what we drink (think a night out). Drinking water can help rid your body of these toxins to prevent issues occurring such as a urinary tract infection.

3. Aids in weight loss and management

Water helps you to feel more full and acts as a natural appetite suppressant so having a few glasses before a meal or at a restaurant will reduce the risk of over-eating.

4. Better skin health

Our skin is made up of cells that require water to increase its elasticity and keep it looking hydrated. Dehydration can cause your skin to become susceptible to skins disorders and premature wrinkling...no one wants that!

5. Regulates your body temperature

Sweating is most often than not a pain and sometimes embarrassing but it is the body's natural cooling system. To be able to regulate your temperature, your body needs water to do this, without it, your body temperature can increase which can make you feel the heat more.

6. Increase in exercise performance

Our muscles are made up of over 70% of water and exercising increases your water loss. Providing your body and your muscles with the water top up they need will help increase your workout performance and allow you to exercise for longer. Remember to drink plenty of water when you have finished your workout to prevent muscle cramps.

7. Prevents bad breath

Drinking water will help keep your mouth moist and wash away bacteria and particles that cause bad breath. As soon as you feel your mouth getting dry, get in a few glasses of water but remember to keep it up throughout the whole day.

8. Say goodbye to hangovers

Alcohol causes dehydration so remembering to have a glass of water with every alcoholic beverage will help to prevent the onset of dehydration and reduce the chance of having a hangover the following day.
