For once I am not talking about the Boundary Waters, but just plain old water that your body needs.  I love to drink Diet Coke but I need to force myself to drink water.  When I alternate a bottle of water with a bottle of Diet Coke I feel much better.  Drinking water keeps me hydrated and helps both my body and my brain to perform better.  On a long drive if I drink water I will feel more awake than if I just stick with my caffeine in my Diet Coke.  So, why don’t I drink more water?  I guess I am a slow learner and need to be reminded of the many benefits of drinking good old water.

  • Water helps remove by-products created during the breakdown of fat tissue.
  • Water flushes toxins out of your system, helps relieve stress and can promote a sense of balance.
  • Water helps digestion, circulation and helps you regulate your body temperature.

These are just a few of the reasons to grab a glass or bottle of water, feel better and say, "Cheers!"
