I received a few queries and questions about how important water is, and how we can increase this. 

We should all aim to drink at least a litre of water a day, however the more water intake we have the better. If we break it down into small chunks it is not that much at all. 8 glassses of water is the same amount as half a litre of water in a bottle. So what does water do for us? Well the main reason is to keep us hydrated. If you think about it we lose water all the time, when we sweat, urinate, walking around , also the systems in our body uses water to help flush toxins. So as this all uses water, and it is lost this needs to be replaced. Sometimes we feel that we might not feel the need to drink water, but sometimes feeling peckish or hungry could be the misconception that we are dehydrated. So it is very important to distinguish between hunger and thirst, but also to not wait until we are thirsty to drink water and should be drinking as often as we can. 

If you are really not keen on water there is also flavoured water. They come in interesting and great flavours. However do have a look at the label as some of them contain high amounts of sugar. So it is best to go for the low sugar options per 100g. 

Finally  try and carry one in your bag as you would be more likely to drink it than not having it ready or available, and then run the risk of becoming dehydrated. 

As christmas is only days away and the possibilty of having alot of alcohol that day, maybe it would be ideal to consider that bottle of water
