If you are starting a new wellness program, the first thing to focus on is the water that you drink. Make sure your water source is pure, and drink plenty of water every day.
Your Cells Float In Water
All of your cells float in water. As a matter of fact, they reproduce in a watery base.
If there is insufficient water in your body, your cells have difficulty duplicating. This can cause a string of problems and can accelerate aging.
Water provides the liquid medium for the health of your blood, your digestive juices, and for your elimination of waste. Water is critical for the regulation of your body temperature, too.
These are just some of the reasons you should drink water more than any other liquid, especially after meals to aid in digestion.
Are You Dehydrated?
Do you drink enough water? Here’s a way to determine if you need to drink more water every day:
Rub your hands together, and if the palms of your hands get moist or wet within a matter of seconds, you are properly hydrated. But if it takes a few minutes to create moist palms, then you need to drink more water.
Your food and drinks shouldn’t be complicated, but if your eating routine is a pain, simply go back to the simplicity of eating, like during your grandparents’ time.
When you drink plenty of water each day and eat basic, whole foods, you can begin enjoying your food again – get ready to start feeling better, having more energy, and experiencing less stress.
And this is all from drinking good water!
Are You Salty?
What’s really interesting is that you are a salt water being – you are salty but you have to drink fresh water – this is why it is very important to drink ample amounts of fresh water every day.
You don’t want to get crusty ….
Water keeps your body’s salt concentrations low, easing stress on your kidneys and preventing dehydration.
Plus, the average adult eliminates approximately 8 cups of water a day by sweating, urinating, crying, and creating saliva. It is essential to replace what is lost.
Water is important to keep your body healthy and strong.
Drink Water, Not Soda
Instead of drinking sodas throughout day, get into the habit of walking around with a bottle of water – all day long. You’ll have more energy, you’ll feel better, be less hungry, and flush out toxins through urination.
Many people complain that when they drink a lot of water they have to go to the bathroom all of the time.
Well, that’s ok. This is healthy!
This is an issue with many public school teachers. Did you know that teachers have more bladder and kidney infections than anyone in other careers?
That said, you should welcome going to the bathroom often because it is a way for your heart to keep your bloodstream clean, take stress off of your heart, and a way to keep toxins out of your bladder and kidneys.
Never Eat And Drink
Never drink water, or any other liquid, while eating.
Your mouth contains digestive juices necessary to begin the digestive process, and washing down your food with liquids washes away the digestive enzymes in your saliva.
Drink after you have finished your meal.
Drinking enough water every day to keep your body totally hydrated is just like eating highly nutritious foods to maintain good health. You can achieve a feeling of general wellbeing and increased energy by just drinking plenty of fresh water.
When you begin a new wellness program – start with making sure you are drinking plenty of quality water every day.
Bottom’s up – with fresh water, that is.
