Feeling Thirsty, Drink Water Not Tea

Mar 17, 2008
Many people in the mornings do not know that drinking a glass of water first thing will help flush out all the toxins that your body was processing the night before. This is also a kick-start to your day, waking you up, giving you energy and hydrating your body. Unbelievably, because you dehydrate the whole night when sleeping, your body will feel weaker and it would take much more effort to begin your day promptly.

Very often people mistake their thirst for hunger and increase their food consumption considerably. Others prefer to drink bottled water or use water filters to drink water from believing that the water system will harm them. The bottom line is whatever the means; one must consistently hydrate themselves in order to continue on with their day. Drinking caffeinated beverages such as tea or coffee is not necessarily the way forward for hydration or for keeping warm. This only dehydrates us more.

Our body is made up of 80 percent water. Our blood is approximately of eighty-three percent water, so when we are only slightly dehydrated our blood is thicker and our body finds it harder to circulate blood around our body. As a result we feel more tired, suffer from headaches and dizziness, your brain finds it harder to concentrate and you just feel lazy.

Water is readily available in the UK so there is no worry over gathering water to survive upon. Drinking tap water is much safer than they perhaps were in the past; however, many people install water filters in order to safeguard them from the chemicals used to keep the water bacteria and pathogen free. The minimum requirement for drinking water is eight large glasses a day, this can be difficult to follow if you are not at home all the time.

Most people are not at home at all times, so when at work you can take a bottle of water or buy portable water filters to drink from your works tap water system. These make for a cheaper alternative to buying bottled water all the time. However, for those who forget and want to change their lifestyle by incorporating more water in their system may benefit in using a timer to remind them of when to go for a drink of water.

Those who drink more water are less likely to fall ill. It is proven that drinking more water flushes out all of the bacteria and toxins in your systems, especially in your throat and lungs. Your immune system is better protected when it your body is hydrated. Furthermore, you are also more likely to lose weight. Fatty acid cells tend to be more rubbery when you are dehydrated, therefore making it harder to burn off when you exercise.

In addition, drinking more water regularly will help suppress the appetite more, as you are less likely to over eat or snack in between meals. This will also help in keeping your skin clear and glowing, which is a great thing for people looking to find the secret to youthful looking skin. Water is no big secret and it is your ticket to a younger looking body.
