Top Benefits of Drinking Water

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dasani and the Coca-Cola Company. All opinions are 100% mine

As the weather changes to colder temperatures and the nights are getting longer and longer I find myself really dogged down. Winter is a time when most people start to really feel burned out, lose energy, and fall into bad eating and drinking habits. I know that I, personally, haven’t been keeping up with my water intake as I should be!

I need to get back on track, and knowing many of you are probably in the same boat as me I thought now would be a great time to list all the great benefits of drinking more water.

Benefits of Drinking Water

According to Mind Body Green“Water intake increases energy and relieves fatigue– since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!” Energy is a huge factor in functioning properly when it comes to my day to day tasks. With four kids to chase around, and lessons to prepare for the classes I teach, I always feel like I’m low on energy. Not getting enough water is one of the culprits. My husband is constantly telling me to drink more water!

Other amazing benefits to drinking water include:

  • Healthy nails, skin, and hair
  • Lubrication of joints and muscles — I can always tell when I am getting dehydrated because my muscles in my back get really stiff!
  • Helps with digestion, flushing out bacteria and toxins and prevents constipation
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Reduces acne, dry skin, and other skin problems
  • Helps fight against the flu by boosting immune system
  • Prevents or remedies headaches and migraine

How do you take your water?!dasani

Do you like your water warm, cold, frozen, with ice, with lemon, spritzed, bubbled, flavored?! My kids love water with a lot of ice straight from the fridge door, as do I!

When I’m on the go, however, a bottle of water is a great way to stay hydrated. My favorite bottled water, Dasani, has a great new look too – a green cap that tells you the bottle is a PET plastic bottle made partly from plant materials. PlantBottle™ packaging pushes the boundaries on sustainable innovation by using groundbreaking technology to create a fully recyclable plastic bottle made from renewable plant materials!

Can you think of any other great benefits to drinking more water?
What is your favorite way to drink water? I love mine on ice!

    I am so terrible about getting my water intake when I’m not at work. Even then, I forget to drink from the bottle sitting right next to me, and it’s terrible. I really need to work on upping it-I could definitely use the help with my skin, hair, and honestly-weight loss. I’m not doing terribly well in any of those categories.

    Also I love this whole plant bottle thing. I saw a terrible documentary about how all these plastic bottles people use could go all the way around the world seven times or something like that-it’s crazy and awful. A biodegradable “plastic” would be a godsend-they should all required to be made out of plants!

    Thanks for your wonderful post. It reminded me of the benefits of water and I really should make it a point to drink at least 32 ounces of water per day! I also love Dasani. It’s my favorite brand of water. I am so glad that they are doing what they can to be socially responsible!

    I LOVE water!! Drink 2-3 Litres a day and still can’t get enough. I constantly have a very large bottle with me everywhere I go , even at the computer when I’m blogging away I have my bottle of H2O. I love that when I’m constantly hydrated I don’t get anywhere near as hungry because most of the time when we feel hungry it’s actually just that we are thirsty. Love your post…shared ion my FB Page and twitter Thanks

    Water is so important. I was drinking fruit water religiously but stopped. I need to get back on it asap. Let me put some fruit on my list right now so I can make my bottle next week. I need something in my water and I tend to get the store brands…I don’t trust my tap water too much.

    Dasani is one of my favorite brands of water. I have a really hard time drinking tap water – I absolutely hate the taste. It’s nice to see that Dasani is becoming more socially responsible. I hate the idea of the environmental affect of ALL of those bottles of water. We can’t continue at the current rate we are or we will destroy our earth – and it’s up to companies to lead the charge as they have the most impact, at least in my opinion!

    I recently started drinking more water. I find that if I do not, weight loss never will happen. It really gives me the jump start I need. I also love ice water. It is so refreshing especially after a long walk. And, I had no idea that Dasani is made from plant based materials.

    Excellent points! We drink a lot of water at my house. It took some time to really get this process going but we enjoy adding a few drops of essential oils to water in a glass to enhance the flavor!

    I absolutely love Dasani lime flavored sparkling water. I always have a glass next to me as I tend to get very bad headaches when I don’t drink enough water. I like Dasani’s regular water as well, but sparkling water is always my drink of choice!

    I have been working hard to increase my water intake the benefits of water is amazing! My favorite is how much healthier I feel. Plus with how much we travel it can really help me to feel not so out of whack with changes in climates and diets.

    I love this post! Water is one of the only things I drink. I was never really a fan of any of those sugary drinks. They always seem to make me sick, so I always stuck to water, and I’m glad I did. There are so many wonderful benefits to drinking water.
