Why Drink More Water?
Now you’ve made the decision to download and listen to this hypnosis there are a couple of important points to note:
Please do not listen to this hypnosis while driving or operating machinery.
WARNING: Do not listen to this Hypnosis if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, have a serious medical condition, a psychiatric or neurological disease and are on heavy medication, without medical consent. If in any doubt always consult your Doctor.
Here at Revived Living we believe in the importance of developing habits. This hypnosis if used correctly will help you develop one of the most important habits for self-care possible. By understanding the importance of the role water plays in your body, and knowing the benefits, it should help you see what it can do in a positive way if you develop this as a habit.
It takes in excess of 21 days to develop a habit. So my advice to you would be to listen to this hypnosis for at least the next 7 days, and then 2-3 times a week after that. If you think you are likely to forget, the listen to it every day anyway, either during the day or when you go to bed at night. Or set a reminder in your phone to prompt you. Be honest with yourself about what will help you get the best from this hypnosis – after all you’ve made the investment, let it work for you!
Why is water important for you?
Most of us know it would be good for us to be drinking more water. But do we really understand why?
Did you know 66% of the human body is made up of water. 75% of the human brain is made up of water.
A human needs approx 2 ½ litres of water a day through food and drink. Although you need to bear in mind that how much tea and coffee you drink will also affect how much you need.
Water is essential for the human body to function. 92% of blood is made up of water, the brain and muscles are over 70% made up of water and bones over 22% water so you can see what effect that could have on your body if you are dehydrated.
We only need to lose a very small amount of water to start to begin to suffer the effects of dehydration.
Some of the effects of dehydration are …
- feeling thirsty and lightheaded
- a dry mouth
- tiredness, lethargy
- having dark coloured, strong-smelling urine
- passing urine less often than usual
- feeling hungry when we are actually dehydrated
- sluggish digestion
- feeling ‘foggy headed’
- lower back pain
Your body needs a steady supply of water throughout the day, but there are many different schools of thought as to how much is needed. If you eat a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables you will take more water through them, but you have no way of measuring how much.
If you take lots of exercise, you will need more. I feel a good amount to aim for is between 2-21/2 litres a day unless you are below or above average height and weight.
There are other schools of thoughts that say 1 fluid oz for every pound in weight. So if I was 150lbs in weight I would drink 150 fluid oz in water – approx 4 litres. Here is where you take a view! Look for the visual clues, such as the colour of your urine and your energy levels and digestion. There is an element of you trusting your body, but if you stick to the 2-2/12 litres that is a great starting point.
What benefits will I feel of drinking more water?
Greater energy levels
Reduced aches and pains
Lighter and brighter skin, clearer and healthier looking
Weightloss (for me this is a vital starting point before you do anything else as part of a weightloss program.)
