The Surprising Ways Water Affects Our Health

WATER.

We all know that water is essential for life. But did you know that it can also have a profound impact on your mental well-being? That's right! Anxiety, physical and mental fatigue, and even your mood can be improved by simply drinking more water. 

Not to mention, it is also essential for flushing toxins out of your system, regulating body temperature and keeping your skin healthy. We focus better, nutrients are carried to cells and it keeps our joints lubricated. 

Next time you are feeling stressed or run down, check your hydration! And no... juice and soda obviously are not water but.... coffee and teas also don't count just because they are made with water! ;) 

The average adult needs 8.5 cups of water daily. But stats show that most people only drink 1.5 cups!!! Say what? Can you imagine the difference in all the areas of you added in an additional 7 cups of water daily?! What a difference that might make in all areas of your health! 

Thinking points:

How much water do you drink daily? What are your tips for drinking more or even hitting your goal? Track symptoms and note what changes as you increase water intake (including water-filled foods like cucumbers and salads) and how you feel. 

Sometimes simple changes make big impact. <3
