Do you want to lose weight, look better, have more energy, be healthier and improve your memory?
Join the “Clear Nation”.
Have a drink of water.
You don’t necessarily have to follow the “eight glasses a day” rule, but you do want to drink enough water to keep your body well hydrated. You can tell you’re well hydrated when you don’t feel thirsty and your urine is light-colored. You are drinking enough once your “pee is clear.” Start the day with a glass of water and then get to the fridge or water cooler for a refill every couple hours.
Here are ten of the major benefits you’ll reap if you stay well-hydrated…
1. Weight Loss
Drinking water instead of soda or sugary juices will quench your thirst—minus the excess calories and plus all the benefits of helping your body flush out the byproducts of the fat and other toxins
2. Skin Elasticity
Drinking water keeps your skin moist, supple, and elastic—thus lessening your risk of developing dry issues like dermatitis, aging skin, and infection.
3. Muscle Efficiency
Being hydrated is essential for keeping those muscles strong, lubricated, and energized. Why? Because H20 aids the transport oxygen to your muscles so they are prepared when exerted.
4. Balancing Mood
Because water aids in body regulation and brain function, it’s also closely related to balancing mood and emotions
5. Temperature Control
When you overheat; you sweat. And the evaporation of sweat on your skin is the way the body cools itself down and maintains a healthy temperature. Understandably, drinking enough fluids is essential for sweating and replenishing your water supply.
6. Memory Function
Proper hydration will improve the blood flow and oxygen flow to your brain, strengthening cognitive function and memory.
7. Joint Lubrication
Your joints, spinal cord, eyes, and brain are surrounded and protected by water. Remaining hydrated is vital to their well being.
8. Healthy Bowel Function
Water aids the elimination of waste material, making bowel movements and urination possible and comfortable, and excreting waste products that would otherwise poisoned the body and cause disease.
9. Aids Digestion
Water provides the ability for your body to eat and digest food—via the water is in your saliva and within your digestive tract.
10. Better Immune Health
Think of drinking water as your secret weapon to fighting off illnesses, improving lymph fluid within the immune system and preventing headaches, joint pain, muscle weakness, fatigue, and lightheadedness.
Training in the Martial Arts is a life style. Health, happiness, safety, balance and strength are some of the many benefits. Maintaining a well conditioned body starts with good hydration.
