Drink Up

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Drinking plenty of water is important for our physical, emotional well-being and woo hoo, for our appearance. We lose water when we sweat, cry, and go potty.The water we lose must be replaced. We should be drinking 2 quarts a day. Mmm hmm, emoticon Why? Because water transports nutrients through our bodies and REMOVES WASTE. It manages our temperature, and, get this arthritis sufferers, it LUBRICATES our joints! When our body wants water it makes us feel tired or sick. So next time you feel sick and tired have some water! emoticon Be careful with coffee, tea and any drinks with caffeine. Guess what. They cause the body to lose water. emoticon What about alcohol? Yep, that too contributes to loss of water in your body. So....if you want soft and supple skin moisturizers alone isn't going to cut it. So drink up...WATER, that is. emoticon Thirsty now?

    So true. I wasn't as diligent about the water for the last few days and as a result didn't feel as well. Water is like a miracle drug.

    This is great -- I always need the reminder even though my body often tells me when I'm lacking...dry mouth, headache-y, etc.

    And, in fact, you did make me thirsty!

    I have been making a pitcher with some cucumber slices and squeezed lemon in it for flavor a couple times a week. It seems to be a refreshing break from regular, but I love it plain, too.
