Our bodies are made up of 60% to 70% water, which is a fair amount of water. But that is what keeps us healthy, happy humans.
Used in various formats, of which I'll give you some examples.
Water has an amazing ability to relax, cleanse, stimulate, lubricate, revive, balance, satiate, exercise, decongest, suspend and mix. How does this relate to our bodies?
Relax - think of a warm bath and how soothing that is.
Cleansing - well, besides the obvious of keeping our bodies free of dirt, there is the whole internal cleansing part too. Ever been sick and had that horrible ache in your body ... try drinking more water and flush your system out, getting rid of those nasty toxins roaming around.
Stimulate - constipated?? drinking water will stimulate your bowels to release - yay for pooping!
Lubricate - between your joints there is fluid. Besides some fancy other cools things the body makes as part of this fluid, it needs water. Lubricate your joints well by drinking water.
Revive - tired, hungry and need a break? Your body is telling you it needs something. Water is the best way to revive those tired, hungry feelings (remember you do need food too.)
Exercise - go for a swim.
Decongest - keep those sticky, snotty like things moving right along. Flush them out with tools made for that ... like a nettie pot (not my personal favorite) or any of the other nasal douches out there. I like the Neil Med one.
Suspend - I use plenty of products suspended with water. Lotions and creams use water as a dispersal method for nutrients to our skin. I have my hands in some pretty cool suspended concoctions.
Mix - whisky and water, oh wait, not that! Our saliva helps to masticate our foods which aides in absorption of the nutrients obtained from our foods. This is a vital part of healthy living, so yeah, go ahead and masticate your foods and mix it with saliva.
Here's the bottom line, we need water in our system. It's good for us, it helps us in numerous different ways.
So here's to you my friends! Drink up.
This is a super simple gauge for how much your individual body needs per day.
Take your body weight, divide that in half. Take that amount and put it into ounces....that's how much water to drink daily.
It is always important to increase your water intake before and after receiving a massage and any form of exercise.
