As you know water is vital to every living being. Our bodies are made up of over 50% water so of course it is only natural to replenish this vital fluid regularly. However, through the colder months we tend to let our water intake slip. We also tend to confuse the bodies thirst signals with hunger, which can dehydrate us even more and even worse sometimes we don’t even receive those vital thirst signals all together because of other liquids that mask it such as coffee, soft drinks, milk, alcohol and so forth.

The body uses water to regulate body temperature, eliminate toxins, lubricate joints, hydrate cells, alkalise the body, keep the blood from getting to thick and to help maintain efficient circulation throughout the body.

The body looses water through sweating, breathing and going to the bathroom. It looses water at a faster rate during hot weather, exercise and sickness. Large amounts of water are lost through diarrhea and vomiting, which can lead to dehydration.

So as you can see it is vital and that is why the team at Wellwood Health have made it our number 1 tip in getting summer body ready. Without enough water going through the body then you unfortunately are not going to shed that winter coat as easily as you would like.

 

Goal for the week – Drink a glass of water every waking hour.

 

For example, if you wake up at 5am, then you must have a glass of water, then another one at 6am, 7am, 8am and so forth. Right through until you go to sleep at night. I know this seems like a lot but it is the easiest way to stay hydrated and to remember to drink. Sometimes life gets so busy that we don’t even realise we have gone all day without a glass.

What exactly is ‘a’ glass? Around the 100 – 150 ml mark is perfect. And by all means sweeten the deal by infusing your water with some fruit or perhaps a squeeze of lemon.

So increase that water and reap the benefits within days with improved energy, less fatigued, improved mood, clearer skin complexion and elasticity, boosted immunity, improved digestion and of course weight loss.
