Raise your hand if you’ve ever overeaten or drank too much during Christmas Holidays (or a combination of the above).
You wake up the next day with a stomach ache or a splitting headache swearing off drinking forever.
Drinking more water is one of the safest, healthiest ways detox the body. When you drink more water, you will feel satiated, leading to weight loss from the lack of desire to over eat. Often when you feel hungry, this signal from the body is actually telling you that you need to drink more, so try a glass of water before you eat something if you are still feeling hungry! You should also never consider substitutes for water. They simply won’t hydrate you as well. Sugar and salt as well as caffeine dehydrate the body. If you cannot help yourself and enjoy one or two coffees during the day then be sure to drink a big glass of cold water alongside it to make sure you aren’t dehydrating yourself further as the day & the Christmas Holiday goes on.
4 benefits that water can bring around Christmas or anytime of the year:
1 – The Christmas Hangover
As a rule of thumb, drinking one full glass of water for every alcoholic beverage that you consume. You will likely be pleasantly surprised with how much better you feel the next day! Also, drinking a pint of water before you go to bed reduces your hangover in the morning and then drinking water throughout the day will rehydrate you.
2 – Reduces High Blood Pressure
When the body is fully hydrated, the blood is over 90% water. This helps to keep the blood moving freely through the veins and arteries, really helping to prevent high blood pressure along with other cardiovascular indispositions.
3 – Keep off the weight
When our cells lack water, they cannot create the energy we need to be at our best, and so they send a distorted signal to the brain to eat more. And this means you will indeed eat more. To avoid this, simply stay hydrated.
4 - Have a nice skin
Remember, your skin is an organ in itself, and just like the rest of your body, it needs plenty of hydration to perform at its best! Many experts believe that simply staying hydrated is one of the best things that you can do to keep your skin looking young. If you want to look your best for holiday photos this year, you should be drinking plenty of water.
You are now ready to stay hydrated this holiday season! Happy Holidays!
