World Water Day: Do you drink enough water?

Today is World Water Day so this spring we encourage you to drink more water and be more active. Your body and mind will be thankful for it!

Spring is the time of the year when nature wakes up. It’s the time when a lot of people make their resolutions to take care of their bodies because they hear Summer knocking and that means – season of bikinis is just around the corner.

We encourage you to start being more active so that you feel your absolute best this spring, summer, all throughout the year. If you’re among those who are making plans for spring detox, have in mind the importance of drinking enough water and the impact water has on your entire wellbeing.

Why?

The human body is 60% water. Hydration is one of the primary needs for human being because one can go without food for about a month, but without water only for a week.

Here are five health benefits that drinking enough water will bring you:

  • Drinking enough water maintains the body’s fluid balance and that helps transport nutrients in the body, regulate body temperature and digest food.

  • Water is important for the kidneys, ensuring that waste products, bacteria and proteins do not build up in the kidneys and the bladder. Kidneys play an important role in the daily workings of our body. Their function is to remove waste products and excess fluid from the body via urine. They regulate the level of salt, potassium and acid in the body.

  • Water affects your productivity as well. If you don’t drink enough water, you may feel tired, have headaches and not perform your best. Water will boost your immune system and make you feel more energized.

  • Water is nature’s best beauty elixir. Drinking the right amount every day will make your skin healthy and give her a natural glow. Don’t believe us? We challenge you to try it out for yourself!

  • Drinking water helps boost your metabolism and cleanse your body of waste. Drinking it before meals can make you feel fuller and reduce your food intake.

  • You can add all kinds of fruit or vegetables to your water if you want to experiment with the different flavours. Our personal favorite one is to add a little bit of lemon juice to our water. It’s so refreshing!

    Been using an app called “Plant nanny” with everyone in the office to encourage us all to drink more! We’ve all got a weakness for both stats and gamification! Def noticed fewer headaches though.

    Will the leaf track hydration levels?

      Hi Pam. The Leaf does not track hydration levels, but it is a great suggestion and we’ll let our team know about this for future consideration! 🙂

        Yeah i agree.
        It would be great to be able to measure hydration within the bellabeat app, so it is more of a one stop well-being shop.
