Did you know that headaches are sometimes brought on by insufficient water intake? You simply cannot be healthy without drinking enough water. Water helps cleanse your body and is necessary for fat loss. Water can help your complexion and even boost your mood. Your goal would be about 64 ounces of water for the average-sized person, more if you are bigger or when engaging in physical exercise. Remember, progressive change is the name of the game. If you haven’t been drinking any water, start with 2 glasses a day. If you’ve been drinking 2 glasses, increase to 4, and so on.
Sometimes it’s very difficult to find time to fill up and drink 8 glasses of water. Here’s a tip that really makes it easier for me. I keep a couple of 33-ounce water bottles in the fridge. Somehow it seems really easy to guzzle down 2 of those a day. It’s also a good idea to keep a water bottle in the car, next to your computer at work, in the kitchen, on your nightstand, and anywhere else you find yourself throughout the day. That way, you’ll have a water bottle handy all day as you sip your way to 64 ounces.
