Drink More Water

Every now and then I fall off the water drinking wagon and hop over to Coca-Cola {I really try to resist but sometimes you just need an ice cold coke…} but for the most part I make an effort to drink a healthy amount of water. During summer months I feel like drinking water on a regular basis is key, especially if you are spending the day by they water or taking part in an outdoor activity. Below are just a few reasons to drink more water

1.      Drinking water can improve your complexion// water can moisturize the skin and increase skin elasticity
2.    Helps control calories// choosing water over a coke or alcoholic beverage can make all the difference. Water rich foods also fill you up more since your body takes a little bit longer to absorb the water.
3.    Energize muscles// when you don’t have a decent amount of water in your system your muscles don’t function as well and can even suffer from the lack of water
4.    Improves your mood// even very mild dehydration can affect your mood in a negative way. More water = a happier you
5.    Cures Headaches// Headaches are often caused by dehydration. Drinking more water helps reduce the intensity and frequency of headaches.
