Benefits of Drinking Water

There are many benefits of drinking water. Drinking water gets rid of toxins in our body, we feel better overall, and it improves our mood. I personally can attest that drinking enough water helps my muscles to not be as sore.

Since our bodies are at least 80% water, we need to keep replenishing ourselves. Most experts indicate we should drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. Sounds like a lot! Here are a few helpful tips to drink more water are:

  1. Get yourself a really cool reusable water bottle that you like. Not only will you be helping the environment by reducing plastic bottle use, but you’ll save yourself money! Just remember to wash it often and let it air dry completely before using again.
  2. If you like your water cold, put a pitcher of water in the fridge and use ice. They make some great reusable stainless steel water bottles that keep water and ice good for a long time. 
  3. If drinking plain water gets boring try adding fresh fruit to change it up. Some of my favorites include lemons, limes, berries, and cucumbers.

We would love to hear your tips on trying to drink more water or what your favorite water bottle is. Please let us know in the comments. Drink up!
