The more hydrated you are, the more you are able to sweat! This is so beneficial because sweat contributes to detoxification and temperature regulation. Drinking enough water gives you more energy as it allows oxygen to flow to your brain and allows your heart to pump oxygen throughout your body efficiently. Without proper hydration the digestive process becomes more difficult, and contributed to bloating and heartburn, as well as water retention. Drinking more water throughout the day contributes to weightloss and weight management as it curves the cravings of foods filled with sugar, cholesterol, sodium, and saturated fats.
Pilates and Lagree are ideal workouts for joint care as stress is not placed on them, so proper hydration takes this to the next level, allowing the joints to stay lubricated. Benefits on the brain include fewer headaches, as dehydration causes the brain to shrink slightly, as well as improved brain performance in relation to cognition, stable emotions, and reducing feelings of anxiety.
It is recommended that men drink 3.7 Liters of water per day and that women drink 2.7 Liters. This includes water that is consumed in fruits, vegetables, and other vegetables as well. Keep in mind that caffeinated beverages are fine but tend to contain a lot of sugar which should be avoided. Additionally, the more you are sweating, the more water you need to be drinking!
If you have a hard time drinking enough water try implementing one glass of water before every meal and in-between meals, before, during, and after exercise, and anytime you feel thirsty.
