If you didn’t know, staying hydrated is of HUGE importance.  Why:

  • Your body is made of about 60% of water.  Keeping it at that 60% keeps your other body fluids in check: like blood and blood pressure, saliva production, and food digestion.
  • It helps your muscles stay at peak performance.  Shriveled muscle cells can’t perform as well!
  • Drinking water instead of soda, juice or coffee lowers your overall calories for the day.  It’s also a healthier option! 
  • A dehydrated body means dehydrated skin.  Keep that skin young and glowing! 
  • It supports your kidney function.
  • Sometimes when you’re feeling hungry, you’re actually dehydrated.  Before every meal drink a glass of water to make sure you’re not eating unnecessary calories.

Here is your downloadable and printable PDF!  Each glass stands for 8 glasses of water a day.  Here are some tips and tricks to getting in more water: 

  • Every time you grab for a Starbucks, soda or juice replace it with water instead. 
  • Set a reminder or alarms for every two hours to remind you to drink a glass. 
  • Before any meals or snacks, grab a glass of water. 

I promise, if you stay with this you will see a difference in your skin and how you feel!

    I need to start tracking. I used to be really good about drinking water, but haven’t as much lately. When we were on vacation a couple of weeks ago, and the temps were over 100 (Arches National Park), I started to get dehydrated and felt really bad for a day or two. I started guzzling the water and it helped a lot!

    Water. Ugh. I don’t like it by itself. I drinking sparkling. I drink flavored – no calories – anything to get it down…. But flat plain water unless I am super thirsty. Not really into it.
