With the prevalence of Super Foods and diet pills and other mainstream fads overtaking the media, it can seem overwhelming to achieve a healthy and radiant body. Inside and out, beauty is becoming more detailed, more specific and more painful to achieve. This is only an appearance, however, as the steps to beauty are always found most easily in simplicity.
If you want to feel better, have more energy, and cleanse your body, all you need is one simple and cheap ingredient. Water. A huge portion of your body is made of water, and when you get even the slightest bit dehydrated it can have a huge effect on your cellular health as well as your general physical wellbeing.
Drinking enough water can seem almost impossible, but don’t over-think it. Just increase how much water you drink each day by a little bit, and you will start feeling the positive effects of it within a day. Your body will feel cleaner, you will end up retaining less water, and your skin and hair will start to clear up very quickly.
A good rule of thumb for determining how much water you need to drink each day is one ounces of water per two pounds of body weight. So someone who weighs around 140 pounds should be drinking 70 ounces of water each day, which adds up to 8.75 cups of water. That may seem like a lot, but consider how much you drink in each glass of water? The average drinking glass holds 1.5-2 cups of water. So if you’re drinking four or five of those each day, you’re on track!
Staying hydrated isn’t a matter of drinking just when you’re thirsty. Minor dehydration is not felt through the sense of thirst; it affects your body’s energy level and fatigue first. Keep sipping your water even if you don’t actively feel thirsty to keep off the major effects of minor dehydration.
The world today seems complex and crazy with a huge dose of too busy in the mix. Simplify your life and your health by just drinking more water. This is the number one easiest way to feel better, have more energy and look radiant. Not to mention that it’s virtually free! Relax your body, and take a sip. Your health, appearance, and energy levels will thank you.
