Drink More Water; Solve 5+ Problems

With one simple change, you can solve scores of problems! Including…

  • dry mouth
  • fatigue
  • headaches
  • dry skin
  • dizziness

If you have any of the above problems, you are probably not drinking enough water. Water will help you more than you know! Take me for example. For a long time, I had a lot of headaches that were pretty painful, and sometimes they got bad enough that I couldn’t do my usual activities of the day. Formerly, I tried to cure them with medicine or caffeine, but I have a found a much better answer. About two weeks ago, I started trying to drink about 10 cups of water every day, and since then, I have seen so many benefits.

A lot of the water you take in is from the food you eat, but that does not eliminate the necessity of drinking water. Experiment with the volume of water, and see what is right for you. Here are some signs to look for that might pop up when you are properly hydrated:

  • -You will be more energized.
  • -You will be more mentally fit.
  • -Your “output” should be very light.
  • -You will need to use the restroom often. (as much as once every hour, sometimes more)
  • -Migraines will go away (only those caused by dehydration, of course).
  • -Your skin will start to clear. (There was an article going around on FaceBook awhile back specifically about this type of thing.)
  • -You will feel little to no urge to snack.
  • -You will eat less at meals.
  • -You will not want pop/soda as much.
  • -You will start to like drinking water.

Don’t worry if you don’t experience all of these; they are just things that happened to me as I drank more water, and correlation does not necessarily equal causation.

How You Start

Now that I have told you that you should drink more water and most of the side effects that I’ve listed above are very motivating, you might wonder how to go about doing this. Here’s what I do: Each morning I fill my gallon jug with water and throughout the day I keep it nearby. This at least doubles my water intake without really trying, and it cuts the preparation time- yes, there is a prep time for filling a glass of water- in half.

Hope it helps!

  1. Great post! Many people don’t realize how dehydrated their bodies are, including me at one point. Headaches, lethargy, dizziness etc. … Yup, that was me.

    I soon realized that I wasn’t drinking enough water … Once I started drinking more, I automatically started feeling better … it’s amazing how water really does re-energize your body, mood included. Just like a car can’t run without gas, our bodies can’t run properly without water.

    So since those time, I’ve been pushing myself to drink my 8 glasses a day. The great thing is that once you get into the habit it doesn’t seem like so much of a chore after a while

    I also try and make sure I fill my body with the cleanest water possible – water filters are great for reducing tap water contaminants such as chlorine, heavy metals such as lead and copper, bacteria and pesticides that may end up in your local water supply :).

    1. That’s great! Lately I’ve been staying hydrated by drinking about two cups of water three or four times a day.

      We have a well, so the clean water thing isn’t really an issue for me. I’m also just not a huge health nut. (nothing wrong with being one, of course.)

      Thanks for reading this article and commenting! (how did you find it??)

  2. For me, it definitely wasn’t easy. As much as I hate to admit it I was addicted to Diet Coke and drank that for everything. I knew it wasn’t doing me any favors and my co-workers were often remarking on how tired I looked. I took baby steps to get here. I first had to really know myself to put me in the best position to succeed. For example, I tracked exactly how much I drank and that helped motivate me. I’m also more likely to drink water when it’s as cold as I can possibly get it. I bought 3 one liter bottles so that I could monitor my progress for the day and I always have 2 chilled in the fridge. I added flavor to the water to get me started and then I began replacing the bottle flavor to slices of lemon or slices of oranges. The one liter bottles were a convenient size to put in my purse or workout bag. Which reminds me, starting off with drinking more water led me to other healthy behaviors such as diet and exercise. I am very much surprised at how much this one thing has been so beneficial to me. Coworkers are now commenting on how “refreshed” I looked and that was when I was only drinking more water. I hadn’t changed anything else at that time though I am now exercising and choosing healthier eating options. 🙂

  3. I recently committed to drinking 3 liters of water a day. Within a month I believe it’s improved my mood, I have less headaches and my skin looks much better. For example the dark circles under my eyes are definitely going away. I can’t wait to see what other positive things come from this as I continue to do this.
