Bored with Water?

“Drink more water” – It’s a statement you probably hear constantly from doctors, dietcians, nutritionists, personal trainers, advertisements, the list goes on. But how much water are you really supposed to drink and how can you make doing so a bit easier?

Frankly, water isn’t everyone’s first choice in beverages, but it really should be. Water accounts for nearly 60% of your body composition and is essential for growth and regeneration of every cell in your body. Without proper hydration, your body won’t work proper! Proper hydration supports the following major health benefits:
  • Prevents dry mouth, lips, and throat
  • Keeps the body cool
  • Improves muscle and joint function
  • Helps you lose weight
  • As your body is cleansed with water, your body sheds waste which leaves you looking and feeling lighter.
  • Cleanses toxins from your body
  • Shedding toxins gives you more energy, improves mental health and functioning, and gives you better skin and hair. Bonus! You will glow!
Using certain fruits, herbs, and flowers takes the benefits of hydration to a whole new level. Infused water benefits include:
  • Heightened metabolism
  • Enhanced digestive functioning
  • Improved immune system functioning (recuperate faster from illness and workouts
  • Additional energy boosts and mood enhancements
So how much should you drink? Half your body weight in ounces. You read that right.

It’s no secret that it’s difficult for many people to drink the necessary amount of water because it can be pretty boring at times. It isn’t as sexy as drinking a glass of wine and it doesn’t have the flavour a soft and sugary drink offers. And yes, while fizzy drinks are fun, it is so important that we limit the amount of sugars and artificial ingredients we put into our bodies. Thankfully, there are easy ways to make your water more interesting, flavorful, and packed full of health benefits. Still not a believer? Read on!

My favorite way to spice up my water intake is with herbal tea bags! Herbal tea is a great alternative to normal everyday tea and much more FUN. The main difference with ordinary tea is, herbal tea is going to leave you HYDRATED!
