Drinking Water is Essential, Drink Up in Style!

You’ve heard a million times that drinking water is good for you, more than half of your body is water, everyone needs at least 8 glasses a day, water is the building block of life, blah blah blah. Unfortunately, hearing this information so many times has made it seem redundant and often times, we take for granted the importance of staying hydrated. Now that the sun is coming out and the weather is finally warming up, drinking plenty of water is more important than ever! Here are some reasons to make sure you’re staying hydrated.

Drinking water is essential for keeping your skin moist, which is key to maintaining a beautiful complexion. Dehydrated skin tends to be dry and tight, making it more prone to wrinkling. We here at Pacific Place are fully behind anything that will improve our skin and if something as easy as drinking a little extra water will make our skin more resilient to aging, how can we object?

Water is essential for supporting brain function. Drinking enough water improves blood and oxygen flow to your brain so when you start to feel that 3 o’clock energy crash, try reaching for your water bottle instead of an energy drink that’s loaded with unnecessary sugars and chemicals. Staying hydrated will strengthen your cognitive function and memory and have you feeling back in tip-top shape before you can even say, “I’m thirsty.”

Hydration is key to maintaining a healthy weight as well! Water helps speed up your metabolism, and drinking ice-cold water will help you burn a few extra calories. Not only is it refreshing, but because your body needs to work harder to warm up the water to your normal body temperature, it burns extra calories. Dehydration is often mistaken for hunger, confusing your body into thinking you need those extra cookies. Staying hydrated will prevent you from consuming empty calories that your body doesn’t need.

Whether it’s soda, juice or just water, the most important part is that you stay hydrated. We found some great water bottles that will make drinking water more fun than ever. They’re so cute that you’ll think you’re getting a new accessory instead of just a plain old water bottle!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
