Recently, I have become somewhat obsessed with water. I get it whenever I go out to a restaurant and I carry my (eco-friendly) refillable water bottle with me everywhere I go.  As an athlete, I know the importance of staying properly hydrated. Water keeps your body functioning properly and allows for peak physical performance. I almost never drink soda or sugary drinks anymore because I simply no longer crave them. I have become so accustomed to drinking water regularly that I crave it more than I crave any other kind of drink.  I have been pretty much only drinking water for about three months now and have noticed a big difference in my life. 

One of the benefits is I have noticed a slight improvement in the quality of my skin and I get fewer breakouts. It’s not magic, I still breakout just not as much. I also feel like I have more energy throughout the day since I started drinking more water. I think this is because for me, drinking a lot of water motivates me to eat healthier too. I eat less junk food and more natural foods that fuel my body and give me more energy. These are just some of the benefits that I have reeked from increasing my water intake. Water is incredibly beneficial to the body. Here are a few of water’s benefits:

  1. More energy - Water has the power to combat the fatigue you may be feeling (or even the occasional hangover) and provides you with the energy you need to take on the day.
  2. Weight Loss - Water can also be an aid in weight loss. Drink a glass of water before you eat a meal and you will become full faster.
  3. Bodily Functions - Water is an extremely important part of the functioning of your body. Cells use water to conduct the activities that keep your body functioning properly
  4. Skin Complexion - Water acts as a purifier for our bodies. It rids our bodies of toxins and cleans out our system.
  5. Makes You Happier - Water can make you an overall happier person. With a healthy body, a clear complexion, and a lot of energy, what is there to be sad about?

Water is a miracle worker for the human body. We all know what it feels like to be dehydrated; it’s not a great feeling. Water improves our quality of life by keeping us happy and healthy.
