Drink 8 Glasses Of Water Daily


This week we challenge you to do the impossible, drink 8 glasses of water everyday for an entire week. Your body is composed of roughly 60% water. That means when we are dehydrated- and most of us spend our days constantly dehydrated to some degree - we are affecting the performance of the majority of our body. Nearly all of our systems do not function as well without the proper water intake. Here's a small list of reasons why drinking water consistently is a beneficial thing:

Benefits of Drinking Water
1. Water helps to maximize physical performance
2. Hydration has a major effect on energy levels and brain function
3. Drinking water may help prevent and treat headaches
4. Drinking more water helps relieve constipation and helps in digestion
5. Drinking water helps treat kidney stones
6. Drinking more water can help with weight loss
7. Drinking water flushes out toxins in your body




To make this challenge a little easier you can include green tea, herbal teas, or fruit juices that are low in sugar to your daily intake of water. Please note that drinks that are high in caffeine do not count as water intake as it is a diuretic.
Note: Typically 1 glass of water is approximately 8 ounces.

Here are some suggestions to help you with this weeks challenge!
Adding fruits such as strawberries, oranges etc. to your water
Adding lemon slices to your water
Adding mint or spinach to your water
Herbal teas
