Every single living organism on this earth requires water to stay alive.

If you take a glass of water and look at it’s contents, you’ll find water is made of a small, but very powerful parcel of molecules. These molecules have a unique combination your body thirsts for every moment of every day.


 You may walk around life totally oblivious to the fact you are thirsty. You might complain of a sore back, sore throat , headache or feel tired, depressed or sick. Water is sometimes all you need to pull you out of this slump of discomfort.


The Scientific Makeup of Water


Water is composed of atoms and these tiny particles are made from awesome elements from the Periodical Chart, encompassing two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. This completes it’s elemental composition, giving it the name H20.


 The word “hydrogen” got it’s name from the Greek language, if

 you split up the word….

 “Hydro” means “water” and “gen” means “generate”.

 Interestingly enough, water generates hydro!

Water has commonly been known as the elixir of life, so there are so many good reasons to drink water!



Here are 20 reasons why drinking water is important …


  1.  Helps to moisturize skin.
  2.  Decreasing the risk of heart attack by thinning the blood.
  3. Helps to lower blood pressure.
  4. Cures a headache, one glass is sometimes all it takes.
  5. Takes away fatigue and lethargy.
  6. Relieves hunger pains and aides in weight loss by curbing appetite.
  7. Great for flushing toxins out of cells and keeping them plump.
  8. Great for reducing some risks of cancer like colon, bladder and breast.
  9. Excellent for replenishing after exercise from sweating.
  10. Helps for cell function by transporting nutrients.
  11. Excellent for lubricating and cushion joints and sometimes eliminates joint pain.
  12. Excellent for flushing the digestive system, making it easier on digestion.
  13. Great for heartburn relief.
  14. Great for hydrating your scalp and promoting hair growth.
  15. Helps to prevent constipation and the uncomfortable feelings that go along with elimination.
  16. Helps regulate body temperature.

Water matters…


If at least 70 percent of your body contains water, you need to keep hydrated! You need to pay attention to when you are thirsty, especially as you age because we tend to lose our sense of thirst.  It’s best to follow a healthy guideline of 6 to 8 cups of water daily and when exercising drink more.


The next time you are hungry, have sore joints, stomach issues, headache, stress or depression try having a glass of water!



Your body may be trying to tell you something.



A question…


What would you do if your plant was dry and wilted?


Most people would water it right away.


We humans have a similar nature, sometimes minor ailments can be cured just by simply drinking more water!


Add water to your routine by drinking water frequently throughout your day..

A few in here I did not know about. Interesting information, appreciate it. Thanks!

Thanks, Gilly, for the clever comparison with watering a plant.  I actually might think more often of rehydrating myself if I envision my roots getting dry or my leaves drooping!  😉

Yes Ashley water is such a easy thing to bring to our lives regularly and keep not just our bodies happy, but also our mind. 🙂

11 Nate March 26, 2014 at 6:26 pm

12 Gilly March 27, 2014 at 8:22 am

17 A. Lynn Jesus March 26, 2014 at 11:59 am

I learned this the hard way – I was in a show and the night before opening I tore my calf muscle. I received quite a bit of feedback that dehydration was most likely a very large contributing factor. So now I really try to drink more water. Some days are better than others, but it is now in the forefront of my mind. Thanks for all these tips too – they are great reminders why it's important to hydrate.

18 Gilly March 26, 2014 at 5:56 pm

Wow that must of really hurt! Yes it's nice to know that drinking water can prevent things like this to happen.

19 Alexandra McAllister March 26, 2014 at 10:33 am

YES! Excellent post! I can recall how much better I felt when I made it a point to drink more water, especially when working out and walking!  It is essential for healthy living! Thanks for the reminder on the importance of drinking water. 🙂

20 Gilly March 26, 2014 at 5:59 pm

You are welcome Alexandra, water always makes me feel better too!

21 Meryl Hershey Beck March 26, 2014 at 9:22 am

Great post and I couldn't agree more. Water is essential for all life and offers such value to our health and fitness.  Sometimes drinking the required amount daily can be a struggle when we live such busy lives.  Thanks for sharing. 

22 Gilly March 26, 2014 at 6:01 pm

Thank you Meryl, I know I can get really busy and completely forget about drinking water and then I have to squeeze drinking water in the evening. Not the wisest idea, but makes me feel better.

23 Heather Cameron March 26, 2014 at 8:30 am

Great blog, I've gotten out of the habit of drinking water and I need to get back into it. Off I go to get a big glass of water. 🙂

24 Gilly March 26, 2014 at 6:03 pm

Heather thank you. I go through this too and forget that I'm even thirsty! I think I'll go grab a glass of water too…
