Here are 10 ways to drink more water each day!
Some think that drinking a diet soda “counts” toward their recommended daily intake of liquids.
The truth is, artificially sweetened drinks offer little to no nutritional value, and they actually increase your body’s NEED for water.
Furthermore, caffeinated soft drinks draw water FROM the body, making your struggle to take in enough water even more difficult.
And, soft drinks that contain sodium also cause your body to retain water, resulting in bloating, rather than the healthy flushing of your system that your body needs.
C’mon, we all know that there are plenty of reasons to drink a lot of water regularly.
Besides being good for you, water also:
- Quenches your thirst!
- Makes you feel full!
- Contains no calories!
Professionally, I pursued my Masters Degree in Family Therapy at Texas Tech — where I obtained invaluable expertise and experience helping people with a wide variety of physical and emotional health issues. Personally, I think it's useful when people realize that they're not the only one going through a difficult time. So any time that I think my personal health experiences would be helpful to someone else going through the same thing, I will share my story here. With health issues that I've personally experienced (like Endometriosis, Lyme Disease, Hysterectomy, Skin Cancer, Ganglion Cysts, Autism, and other topics that very few people enjoy talking about) and health products that I've found beneficial (like sleep aids, essential oils, and medications)… I do my best to provide my own raw and honest firsthand experiences that I think others would appreciate hearing about and (hopefully) find helpful. I'm grateful that I have a number of friends who have also been willing to share their very personal stories here — regarding their own physical and emotional health. When I'm not writing about health topics, you will find me sharing Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
