Tip 2 for Happiness – Drink Water

The second tip on how to be happy is a small tip, that may times we ignore and we think is not related to happiness. The tip is to drink water. Start your day with a glass of water and drink 8 glasses of water throughout the day.

If you normally start your day with a cup of coffee then my tip would be to postpone the coffee till the middle of the day and drink water instead.

You may ask yourself how it is possible that drinking water will make you happier.  It will definitely make a difference.

  • Our bodies are 95% water and therefore if we do not drink water, our organs will need to work hard to oxygenate the body. Since the organs work hard, they will be tired and therefore you will get tired, so probably unhappy.
  • The body will draw water from your blood when you do not drink water. Then the blood will become dense, and you will get tired.
  • Water can cure headaches caused by dehydration. Most headaches are due to dehydration, so if you have a headache chances are you will feel miserable.
  • The brain is composed mostly by water. The brain needs water to function. If you do not drink enough water you brain will get dehydrated and will not function well. Drinking more water can increase your concentration, focus, and be more alert, therefore you will feel happier.
  • Water will make your skin look younger and will give your skin elasticity. You will therefore look more beautiful and younger.
  • Water suppresses your appetite naturally. You will lose weight by drinking water, since you will not feel so hungry and also will help flush the toxins and the bad fat in your body.

So my suggestion is to start your day with a glass of water, You will feel refreshed and energized and happier.

 

It  is also a fact that when you drink a cup of coffee you need to drink three glasses of water to rehydrate your body.

    Great topic, it’s one I’ve been focusing on a lot lately. Just, in your personal experience, have you noticed that it’s possible to drink “too much” water? I’ve noticed on days when I drink nothing but water, it almost seems to have an adverse affect. I chalked it up to may drink too much (and too much too fast?), tough I first I thought it was the lack of caffeine, almost like mini withdrawals or something, but I didn’t think I drink THAT much caffeine. Maybe a two, three tops, glasses of soda a day?

    Would love your thoughts!

    @JMattHicks To be honest the maximum amount of water I had drunk is about 4 to 5 liters a day. Just because I could not drink any more. When I drink so much water I do not drink coffee or tea. I have stopped drinking coffee since last June. I do drink herbal tea sometimes and I see when I drink tea or when I used to drink the bottled juices I did not get to drink so much water, sometimes any water. I do not drink any sodas. But I see what you mean if you drink too much water in a go, like sometimes I drink 1.5 liter in a go I can feel a funny sensation in my stomach for a while. But also the amount of water does not only come from water but from healthy food. If you eat lots of veggies and fruits the amount of water you need to drink is much less. when I eat mainly fruits and veggies I have 4 glasses of water in the morning and then I hardly drink any other water during the day. So for me there is not a hard rule as if you drink too much and too little. You need to listen to your body. Everyone is different and depends on your diet also. Thank you for visiting my blog.
