Are you drinking 8 glasses of water a day?

I know we’re all ripping and running trying to reach our daily goals but drinking 8 glasses of water a day should be one of them. I have 4 reasons you should be drinking 8 glasses of water a day below. Oh, and to make it easier for you I incorporated a tracker for your water intake in the 2018 Purpose Planner.

Grab your water and check out the benefits below.

1.Drinking More Water Can Help With Weight Loss: This is due to the fact that water can increase satiety and boost your metabolic rate.In two studies, drinking half a liter (17 ounces) of water was shown to increase metabolism by 24-30% for up to 1.5 hours.This means that drinking 2 liters of water every day can increase your total energy expenditure by up to 96 calories per day.

2.Keeps your mind sharp: Our brains are mostly water.  Drinking it keeps your mind “hydrated” – it helps you think, improves concentration, and keeps you alert. 

3.Moisturizes skin: Forget expensive and chemical-laden skin moisturizers.  Let nature do its work.  Water keeps your skin soft and supple, and reduces wrinkles.  Need we say more

4.Improves digestion:  Perhaps most important is the role that water plays in digestion.  Good health is dependent on good digestion.  Water is critical to food digestion and absorption.  Water also helps to prevent constipation, which can inhibit good digestion and elimination.
