Thursday Thirteen #250

Thirteen reasons to drink more water. That's my New Year's Resolution: to drink more water. As we're into Month 3 of 2022, I thought it would be good to remind myself why regular intake of H2O is good for me and my --

1. Joints: It helps maintain cartilage

2. Mouth: It's important to creating saliva

3. Teeth: It contains no sugar, and sugar causes decay

4. Skin: It can help reduce premature wrinkling and sagging

5. Brain: Dehydration can cause fuzzy thinking

6. Body temperature: Water helps me sweat, and sweat keeps me cool (maybe I don't care about this right now, but I will soon)

7. Gut: More water makes constipation less likely

8. Blood pressure: Dehydration can lead to high blood pressure

9. Nose and throat: Dehydration can exacerbate asthma and sinus issues

10. Kidneys: More water makes kidney stones less likely

11. Weight: Few calories than Coke ... or just about anything else!

12. Nutrition: It helps carry vitamins, minerals and nutrients to my organs

13. Headaches: Migraine sufferers, like me, report a reduction in "frequency and severity"when we stay sufficiently hydrated

More water? YES, PLEASE!
