Most of us know that we should be drinking more water, but what exactly are the benefits of doing so? We take a look at our favourite incentives for visiting the office water coolers regularly.
Our looks Yes it's vain, but that morning trip to fill up a jug of water will really improve our appearance. When you drink more water, whether from a bottle or mains-fed water coolers, your eyes will look brighter, your energy levels will provide your skin with a glow. You’ll also look and feel better. This is because water supports your body's natural cleansing and detoxifying processes, and also naturally moisturises the skin. Forget expensive beauty preparations and creams, basic water will do wonders for your looks!
Our health If you have ever experienced digestive problems, take a look at your diet. If you are drinking lots of caffeine and sugary drinks, you will see immediate benefits if you switch to calming chamomile or peppermint blends. Look for herbal teas that combine a range of natural herbs, and ingredients for stomach-calming benefits. If you have ever experienced tension headaches or stress, swap your coffee habit for natural fruit teas that help hydrate and release those pains, which are caused by blood vessels constricting through dehydration, telling your nerves to jangle! And for the sake of your teeth, bones and overall health, green tea is a perfect choice, offering myriad health benefits.
Our well-being overall Tea or a cold drink can also provide a lovely ritual on a busy day. Rather than dashing around and drinking expensive commercial drinks on the run, take time to enjoy a glass of delicious filtered water in a beautiful glass, or a well brewed fruit or herbal tea in a beautiful mug. Enjoy and savour the experience and linger over it for a few minutes to feel calm, relaxed and full of well-being.
