While many of us seem to survive off of coffee and soda, no one can reasonably argue that it is a healthy way to exist. Although the caffeine is often extremely welcome to our systems when we need to get up early for work, it doesn’t actually do our bodies any favors. Even for things like waking up, water is going to be your best bet. Focusing on getting enough water in your system should be priority number one if you are trying to be healthy and happy.
Water does a great many things for us, including regulating our body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, and metabolism. It also helps to flush out any waste from the body, especially from the kidneys. Although things like coffee and soda do help people to get water into their systems, they have other ingredients that the body can absorb including sugars which can be damaging in high levels. This is why water and other liquid-based foods are good to have on hand. Things like yogurt, most fruit, and salads often have a large amount of water along with other health benefits. It is important to remember that water can come from many sources, but it is best to consume in its original form.
We always hear that we should drink eight glasses of water each day, but this isn’t necessarily true. In fact, drinking too much water can be dangerous to your body as well. Instead, scientists are now saying that drinking enough water to urinate every two or three hours is a healthy amount as long as your urine is clear. While some people may be able to get away with only a couple of glasses of water each day, people who exercise often will need more due to sweating out a lot of the water that they consume. The proper amount of water to drink to stay healthy is fully dependent upon the person.
