Happy New Year 2013! The Best Resolution For 2013

 Happy New Year 2013!

In keeping with the tradition of New Year's Resolutions, it's only appropriate to add "water" to your list of easy things to do!  We've all heard the drinking water “rules.” You probably know that you should drink between 8 and 10 glasses of water each day.  Let's examine just a few of the many benefits to drinking water every day.

Stay Slim With Water
Trying to lose weight? Water increases your metabolism and helps you feel full. Replace calorie-laden drinks with water, and drink a glass before meals to help you feel fuller. Drinking more water also helps increase your metabolism - especially if your glass is cold. Your body has to work to warm the water, in the process of burning a few extra calories.

Water in the Workplace
If you feel tired and exhausted, drink water. Dehydration makes you feel tired. Water helps the blood transport oxygen and other essential nutrients to the cells. If you get enough water, you also do not have the heart to work harder to pump blood throughout your body.

De-Stress With Water
85% of your brain tissue is water. If you are dehydrated, both body and mind will be stressed. If you feel thirsty, you're already slightly dehydrated. Keep stress levels down, carry a bottle of water with you at all times.

Water Fuels Your Muscles
Drinking water helps prevent muscle cramps and lubricate joints in the body. If you are well hydrated, you can exercise longer and stronger without "hitting the wall." In addition, drinking water regulates your body temperature. That means you’ll feel more energetic when exercising. Water also helps to fuel your muscles.

Watering Your Skin
Fine lines and wrinkles deepen when you are dehydrated. Water is your natural beauty cream. Drinking water hydrates the skin cells making your face look younger by improving circulation and blood flow,making your face clean, clear, and radiant.

Water Relieves Fatigue
Water is used by the body to help flush out toxins and waste products from the body. If your body lacks water, your heart (and all your organs) must work harder to pump out the oxygenated blood to all cells. Overworked organs spell fatigue and in some cases exhaustion.

Reduce the Risk of Cancer with Water
Related to the digestive system, some studies show that drinking a healthy amount of water may reduce the risks of bladder cancer and colon cancer. Water dilutes the concentration of cancer-causing agents in the urine and shortens the time in which they are in contact with bladder lining.
