The Importance of Healthy Hydration and Why You Should Create a Daily "Water-Habit"

H20. Water, we simply can't live without it. Our body is mostly composed of water, in fact 60-70% of our bodyweight is water. So why do so many of us not drink enough water? It’s important to establish a daily “water-habit” to ensure proper hydration for well-being.

What proper hydration does for the body:

  • Helps to digest food and deliver nutrients on cellular level
  • Flushes out unhealthy toxins and waste within the body
  • Key in regulating and controlling body temperature
  • Provides hydration to muscles and lubricates joints
  • Helps prevent premature aging
  • Alleviates Pain
  • Aids in weight loss
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Promotes better sleep

The best thing you can do for yourself to create a healthy water habit is have a glass of water by your bedside. As soon as you wake up, even before you use the bathroom—drink your glass of water.

TIP: Room temperature water really is the best choice as drinking cold water actually shrinks blood vessels and that causes a restriction in digestion.

If drinking plain water through out the day is a struggle for you, try to flavor it with your favorite fruits and vegetables.

A great and simple recipe or technique is to diffuse the fruits or vegetables overnight in the refrigerator. Early in the day before work our going out pour some in a water bottle and bring it with you throughout the day.
