Ever since I was a child, I loved drinking water. I remember my mom telling me to drink lots and lots of it every day. I try to drink at least 2 liters of water in the office. That’s the thing with going to work and sitting in front of the computer daily, you tend to forget to drink.
Why is it important to drink water? First, it helps in the digestion process of the body. Our body is made up of 2/3 water. Our body needs a certain amount of water combined with enzymes to churn food.
Second, it helps lubricate our joints. We need to hydrate our bodies so that we avoid aching muscles and joints. Dehydration may be the cause of arthritis.
Third, water helps in weight loss. It helps metabolize fat. This is the most important benefit for me (lol!). It also keeps my tummy full before a meal, which in turn does not make me over eat.
I started a chart in my Belle de Jour journal for keeping track of my water intake in the office. You might want to do the same and track it in your diaries. This is just a friendly reminder from moi!
