Why It's Important to Drink Enough Water

Water is essential for doing a body good.

How many times have you heard how important it is to drink more water? It helps cleanse your body and keep it hydrated for overall better health.  But if you drink only bottled water, which is expensive, you may be missing out on something good.  Drinking tap water provides flouride to help prevent tooth decay.

Yet, do you know how much water you drink a day?  If you're like me, then you probably can take a rough guess--at least, you think so.  However, if you want to know exactly how to drink more, then you need a plan.  

I'll share a little trick to get more of that precious fluid into you.  The easiest way I have found is to save one of the portable size bottles that came when you  purchased bottled water.  Clean it out, refill it from your sink, and throw it in your handbag.  You can measure the amount of water now since knowing how many bottles you'll drink by every refill.
