Many of us do not realise how dehydrated we could be.

Many of us do not realise how dehydrated we could be.

According to Water Logic, people in the UK are only drinking 53% of their optimal level of water consumption every day. Considering 60% of our body weight is water and our key organs need to stay hydrated to be at optimal performance, this can drastically impact an individual’s physical and mental wellbeing state.

It seems like a simple thing, but we know that water is truly the nectar of the heavens. It has been associated with being the healing liquid to both energetically and physically support our wellbeing by several cultures around the world.

Water acts as a building block, a solvent for chemical reactions, and a transport material for nutrients and waste.

Water also helps maintain blood volume and allows proper circulation, helps regulate our body temperature, and acts as a shock absorber for our joints and our brain. There are still more health benefits of water: it helps lubricate the linings of our inner organs and maintains healthy kidney function.

Here are some ways water influences mood and body:

1)     Wakes you up. Feeling sluggish, grumpy or tired? Drink up, as you require between 2 to 3 litres of water per day to allow your body and brain to function at optimal level. Water acts as a shock absorber for our brains (and our joints)

2)     Help you to lose weight. Wanting to slim down? Water helps to flush out toxins from the body and help to lose those extra pounds as it allows proper circulation.

3)     Tranforms your thinking? According to Dr. Emoto who was a pioneer in the study of water, water is shaped by environment, thoughts and emotions. His work raises the question: if water is affected by the words, intentions, and energies, what about human beings, who are made of mostly water? If we transform the water and thoughts we are made of, what else is possible?

4)     Prevention of disease as it lubricates the linings of our inner organs and maintains healthy kidney function which helps to rid the body of toxins.
