It is often said that where there is water there is life and yet, ironically, most people don’t bother with this abundant beverage. A study conducted in the US in 2013 showed that 43 percent of adults drink less than four cups of water a day. Among these adults, 7 percent, do not drink water at all. The amount of water, contrary to popular belief, is not always the 8 glasses that everyone talks about. The amount of water you need depends on many factors such as, temperature, activity, and how much fluid you get from other sources (food), just to name a few. While it would be hard to pin down an exact amount of water your body needs, one fact remains – YOUR BODY NEEDS TO STAY HYDRATED!
To motivate you, we have collected a few benefits that water can bring into your life.
It’s that time of the year where everyone is looking to shed a few pounds and build that beach body but as we all know, it is not that easy. According to this source, many people confuse being thirsty with being hungry. This may lead to eating too much. However, when your body is hydrated, this will not happen.
If you have dry skin, water can help smoothe and clear your skin, and improve your complexion.
