Today’s October Health Challenge is to drink 8 glasses of water, but we’re hoping you extend this challenge to an everyday thing. Being hydrated has tons of benefits for your skin, hair, and overall well being. Let’s take a look at a few of the many benefits to being well hydrated.
- You’ll feel less foggy. Are you having a hard time focusing or are feeling sluggish? Being dehydrated can lead to fatigue, so drinking a glass of water can help you refocus and gain energy to get you through the rest of the day.
- You’ll have less headaches. Dehydration is one major culprit for headaches. If you’re feeling a headache coming on, drink a glass of water. A study done earlier this year at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands found that the patients who suffered from major headaches, even migraines, felt better overall when they drank seven glasses of water a day. So drink up!
