We’ve all been told to drink more water—but do you know just what water can do for your body?
Take a look at today’s blog as we explore the multifold benefits of nature’s simplest resource.
It’s an athlete’s best friend
If you spend any amount of time on athletic activities—hiking, biking, running, walking, playing soccer—you already know the refreshing benefits of a few big gulps of water. After stretches of time on the field or the hiking path, there’s nothing you want more.
But did you know that the best time to hydrate is before you even feel thirsty? Athletes and outdoor adventurers alike can benefit from staying well-hydrated before, during, and after activity. No activity is too small or tame to warrant that kind of hydration!
It keeps you focused
Your mind might start to feel the effects of minor dehydration before you actually get thirsty. To stay on top of your game at work, school, and in your daily life, water is your ticket.
It can help ease minor aches and pains
Studies have shown that staying hydrated, for some, can ward off headaches caused by fatigue and other factors. Even if it doesn’t prevent your headache altogether, water might help it go away faster.
It can make you feel fuller
Looking for ways to curb your appetite? Staying hydrated before and during your meal can help you tell when you’re full more easily.
It can prevent the buildup of toxins
Water can help cycle out toxins from your body which, when built up, can cause less-than-clear skin. Enjoy this visible benefit of staying well-hydrated!
It can wake you up
Many of us might agree that the day doesn’t officially start before a morning cup of coffee. But before you have time to make it to the coffee shop or fire up your coffee maker, try keeping a bottle of water near your bed for an instant boost right when you wake up! Around 60 percent of the human body is made of water, so it only makes sense that staying hydrated can help fuel you and keep you up and running at your best.
Hot? Tired? Just plain thirsty? Reach for a glass of water for a simple solution you can’t get enough of.
