The Benefits of Drinking Water
Staying hydrated throughout the day is important for your overall health and well-being, so incorporating H2O early in the day can help ensure you're hitting your daily water quota.
Another thing to keep in mind is that certain conditions can dehydrate and require you to drink more water to replenish your body. If you find yourself experiencing any of these situations you should consider increasing the amount of water you drink that day to compensate:
- Hot climates
- You are more physically active than usual
- Running a fever
- Having diarrhea or vomiting
Alcohol can cause your body to lost water due to being a diuretic. And while caffeine doesnt cause dehydration it causes symptoms that are very similar. Supplementing your alcoholic drinks, sodas, and fruit drinks with a glass of water is a good way to stay on top of your hydration and keep your body fueled up.

Experts agree that maintaining optimal hydration is important for the body's overall health and keeps everything functioning properly.
