Water is one of the elements on this planet that is great for the Earth and your body. Water is a necessity to the human body’s survival. A person can live a month without food but only about a week without water. That just goes to show how important water is for everyone. Plus, just taking in sips of water a day will ensure a healthy body for life, and you can try delicious flavored water recipes here!

Your Body will be More Comfortable
Drinking more water will help to keep your body warm in the winter and cool in the summer.Your body’s temperature-regulating system is controlled by the hypothalamus in the brain which constantly collects information that allows it to make adjustments to maintain a fairly steady core temperature. Your internal thermostat works better when you are well hydrated.
Your Skin Will Glow
Water naturally moisturizes skin to ensure proper cellular formation underneath layers of skin to give it a healthy, glowing appearance.
You will Keep Healthier
Hydration keeps your mucus membrane in top working condition—they are known as the gatekeepers to the natural defense system that helps keep out the germs such as the cold and flu virus. When these tissues dry out, the germs can become more easily to penetrate where the nasal passages and mouth meet. The severity of an illness you catch can be a lot lower if you drink plenty of water.

Help you to Lose Weight
Water is a filler, so when you drink the minimum amount of water you will feel full and will eat less. Studies have shown that those who drink water before meals consume an average of 75 fewer calories per meal. Plus when your body is working closer to maximum efficiency it enhances the digestion, muscle function and exercise.
Helps to De-Stress your Body
Just by sipping water throughout the day you can help to soothe stress-induced symptoms like headaches, tense muscles, fuzzy thinking, a pounding heart and low energy. That’s because stress pulls all of your basic body systems—and when you’re not hydrated, the effects are intensified. So keep a battle of water on you to be reminded to drink your water.
