There’s a reason you’ve heard that you should drink water a million times. Drinking enough water can have a major effect on your health and wellbeing. It keeps you feeling well, looking good and makes sure that all the processes in your body run smoothly. Here are just a few things that will happen to your body if you drink the right amount of water every day.
1. You will have more energy
Lots of people reach for coffee or energy drinks when they feel sleepy, tired, or feel the approach of that dreaded mid-afternoon slump. But the thing is, water might just do the trick. A lot of the time feeling tired goes hand in hand with dehydration, and while coffee or an energy drink will make you feel jittery for an hour or two, it won’t fix the problem. Those things will only dehydrate you further and make you feel even worse once their effect peters out. Next time you feel like reaching for coffee in the middle of the day – try a big glass of cold water.
