14 Reasons Why You Should Drink More Water!

They say water is the elixir of life!

Believe it! 

There are so many good reasons to drink water. 

Water is really all we need sometimes to pull us out of a slump. Most times we walk around in life totally oblivious to the fact the we are thirsty. You might complain of a sore back or knee. Maybe you have a headache or just plain feel tired and depressed. All you need is to drink water!

I've heard some people say they never drink water. They just don't feel the need.

Water is the reason you don't age.

If you never drink water, then you are always wilting.
If you just drink little bits of water through the week. 
Your organs are suffering and you will have moments where you can't think straight. 
Then you'll have moments where you'll just feel lousy.
You might forgo your run or walk, you might say you're coming down with something.
You might even go to the doctors for a sore throat.

When all you need to do is drink water!

Look at your lips, look at your tongue, look at your skin.
If your lips are cracked, wrinkled and dry.
Your tongue grey and dry looking
Your skin rough, cracked or increasingly wrinkled.
Drink water.
Drink a little bit every 2 hours until you feel better.

6 to 8 ounce glasses daily and more if you are exercising.
