Reaching the goal of 64 ounces of water each day (more if you workout and drink caffeinated beverages), is no easy feat for most of us. Perhaps understanding the reasons why we need more water in our diets will encourage us to chug and refill…
From sun up to sun down, water is vital for our overall health. Many studies have shown that drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning boosts your energy, as well as your metabolism. Burn more calories and feel more awake? Yes, please!

Over time, staying properly hydrated, can prevent the signs of aging, aid in weight loss, combat depression, improve sleep, and boost your immunity among many other benefits.
