We know you know you have to
People rarely drink the right amount of water for their body each day. Most people struggle to remember to drink water, some people drink water from poor sources, and some people just don’t like drinking water. We are here to help.
First, we know you know you have to drink water. We also assume that you already know why you should be drinking your ’48 oz’ per day, but let’s go over it just in case.
-Carries nutrients and oxygen to your cells
-Flushes bacteria from your bladder
-Aids your digestion
-Levels your blood pressure
-Protects your organs and tissues
-Regulates your body’s temperature
-Cushions your joints
…and that’s just a few.
So why is it so difficult…?
Honestly, most people don’t drink water because it’s boring. Coffee tastes better, soda tastes better, and energy drinks are commonly used just to combat the 2 o’clock urge to nap (coincidentally this tends to happen due to dehydration). We don’t even realize we are dehydrated because our bodies don’t feel thirsty — why would they, they’ve had 3 cups of coffee! But all that sugar and caffeine is likely leading to weight gain, dehydration, anxiety, and even depression… and it’s not hydrating you properly.
