47141946_MMake no mistake about it — drinking water is one of the greatest things you can do for your body. So many of your body processes rely on your consumption of the recommended amount of water per day.

But, we get that water isn’t the easiest beverage to consume, especially if you are used to drinking coffee to get through the workday or fueling up with a large soda for lunch. And, short of putting fresh fruit in your water, there aren’t too many things you can do to make it exciting.

Know that the more you drink water, the more your body will crave water, and the less you’ll care how plain your water is. Just like any other habit, the important thing is to just begin. The rest is easy. When you experience these benefits, you’ll never go back to an unknowingly dehydrated state again.

Benefit #1: Rid yourself of pain.
Water is a natural lubricant. If you’re experiencing stiff joints or even a stomachache, water can work to get your body back to normal. Water will also get rid of the headache caused by dehydration. Water and chiropractic care together can make a big difference in the way your body feels.

Benefit #2: Improve your skin.
When water is able to properly hydrate your skin, you’ll experience a more supple, youthful glow. The reason for this is that dehydration can contribute to dry skin and wrinkles.

Benefit #3: Change your mood.
Without water, your body goes into a slight haywire mode where it’s trying to figure out what’s going on and how it can get back to equilibrium. Even mild dehydration has proven to affect mood and can contribute to feelings of stress, anxiety and fatigue.

Even though our bodies are composed of about 60% water, it’s still not enough. Form a new habit of drinking your recommended glasses of water per day and experience what proper hydration can provide to you.
