Water! So important for life! Do you drink enough of it? I think we all realize it is important for our health and well being, but I thought it would be great to write up a post with some of the many reasons why we should be drinking plenty of water everyday!

If you are part of my 2016 THM Accountability Group, this is our second week challenge! Setting a goal and drinking your water each day! Great habit to get in to!

Benefits of Drinking Water
Promotes Glowing Skin
Helps our bodies absorb nutrients
Keeps our system flowing (yes, it is a visible affect in our blood, have you ever had a blood draw when dehydrated? BAD!)
Helps energize our muscles
Helps our kidneys
Helps…ahem…keep our elimination system moving..a very good thing!
Has a positive affect on our mood
Helps us lose weight
Can lessen joint pain when properly hydrated
Can help prevent headaches
These are just a few of the MANY benefits of water in our system. Look around, life grows, flourishes and multiplies with water, the trees and plants show their beauty when well hydrate and cared for. We too need that care, nourishment to our system with plenty of water.

How much water? From my little bit of research I found a variety of opinions. Some recommend the old standby, 8-8oz glasses of water a day. Some say drink have your body weight in ounces per day. Whatever way you decide to determine how much is enough for you, set a goal and drink that much everyday!

I have actually downloaded an app on my phone that sends me a little reminder to drink my water! I do count my GGMS and tea as water too.

Do you know of more wonderful benefits of water?

John 7:38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'”
