It’s easy to take water for granted.
I spend most of my life working with water, delivering it to your taps and toilets and working on blocked drains that won’t allow waste water to run away.
My entire family’s leisure time is spent scuba diving and snorkeling, surfing and sailing, swimming and socialising on and in the water. Water is a major part of our life, and when we’ve finished having fun in the water we all shower off!
But drinking water is something I must make part of my life as middle age sneaks up on me, I know to be with the ones I love and do the things I love, I must have good health.
And, I usually say if I can do it, then it’s pretty easy to do!
So here’s my top 8 good reasons why I should drink more water
Lose weight: Drinking water helps you lose weight because it flushes out the by-products of fat breakdown. Drinking water reduces hunger, it’s an effective appetite suppressant so you’ll eat less. Plus, water has zero calories.
A Natural Remedy for Headache: Helps relieve headache and back pain usually caused by dehydration. Although many reasons contribute to headache, dehydration is the common one. This is a big one for me.
Better Productivity at Work: Your brain is mostly made up of water, so drinking water helps you think better and be more alert, cause we need more lerts!
Better Exercise: Drinking water regulates your body temperature. So you should feel more energetic when doing exercises. Water helps fuel your muscles and I need that.
Helps with Digestion and Constipation: Drinking water raises your metabolism because it helps with digestion. Fibre and water should go hand in hand so that you can have your daily bowel movement. Good for the personal plumbing and the house plumbing.
Reduce Sickness: Drinking plenty of water helps fight against flu and things like kidney stones and heart attack. I fill the water jug and roughly cut 2 or 3 lemons, leave it to sit for a while. It apparently helps intestinal problems? Plus it can improve your immune system.
Improve your Mood: Your body feels very good and that’s why you feel happy. Helps with Furking (Having fun…….. while you’re working).
Reduce the Risk of Cancer: Some studies of the digestive system show that drinking a healthy amount of water may reduce the risks of bladder cancer and colon cancer. Water dilutes the concentration of cancer-causing agents in the urine and shortens the time in which they are in contact with your bladder lining. Now, that sounds good to me!
