Are you drinking enough water?

Are you drinking enough water on a daily basis? Most of us are not.  It is important to know and understand just how valuable drinking water is to the body.   Nearly every living creature needs water: humans, plants, animals, insects…but I’m going to focus on the human for now.

It is said that the human brain consist of between 75 and 80 percent water. In order for our brain to function properly it needs proper hydration. When you are not getting enough water your brain tends to lose it’s efficiency.water

Some people don’t realize when they are dehydrated. But if you seem forgetful a lot and things seem fuzzy at time, you may need to ask your self how much water have you drank because when you are not getting enough water it can effect short and long term memory.

If you work out, you need even more water then normal.  Working out causes the body to sweat and therefore you lose fluids that need to be replaced as soon as possible.

My experience with not drinking enough came all too close to me having to go get checked out for something I didn’t realize had anything to do with drinking water.  I while back my right wrist had swollen as if I had sprang it or something, but I hadn’t.  I thought it over and over and I could not remember lifting anything or doing anything that would have caused my wrist to swell.

The next day, I went to get a massage as he began,  he asked a series of questions to make sure that he would give me the right massage treatment.  I told him about my wrist, he touched and immediately got on my case and asked me when the last time I had drank water was.  I looked at him and told him it had been about a days because I had been so busy.  He then explained to me that it was not healthy to go without water at any point, and that lack of water can do more than cause swelling.  Since then water is my best friend.

Below are 8 Reasons to drink water:

  1. it helps the body maintain it’s proper fluids and keep the brain functioning properly.
  2. It helps with weight loss
  3. It helps keeps your muscles energized.
  4. It helps your skin to clear up
  5. Helps the bowels stay open
  6. Helps keep your kidneys working properly
  7. helps with mental clarity
  8. It’s also known to help with aching joints

So make sure you are getting enough water every day.  How much you need depends on your individual body and activities you participate in.
