It’s the festive season and a very busy time of the year. We are all wrapping up with work, getting ready to go on leave, shopping, spending time with your family and friends and really just enjoying the holiday spirit.
But no matter how busy you are, it’s critical to your body and mind that you’re drinking enough water.
Get your energy levels up
As already mentioned, the festive season can be a very busy time and usually when we feel tired, our first instinct is to make yourself a cup of coffee or consume a caffeinated drink. Seeing that caffeine dehydrates your body, it really will only make you feel re-energised for up to an hour.
Did you know that the most common symptom of dehydration is being tired? Why not try water instead and see how much better you will feel and the great thing is that it is not a quick fix lasting for only an hour.
The much-needed hangover help
We all know that over the festive season with all the invites to year end functions, dinner with friends and going out to enjoy the festivities, we often indulge in the cocktails and beverages slightly more because hey it’s the festive season.
To help your much-needed hangover, as the alcohol will have dehydrated you, to drink one glass of water for each alcoholic beverage you consume, keeping your body hydrate which will stop that pounding headache. It works wonders.
You will be amazed how much better you feel the next day when you stay hydrated.
Fresh breath – a must
Festive season, is the season of hugging and kissing friends, family and even co-workers, there is really nothing worse than having bad breath. According to the Mayo Clinic keeping your mouth hydrated helps wash away food particles and bacteria that causes bad breath.
Prevent catching a cold
No one wants a cold during the festive season. As you will be even more active, make sure to keep hydrated as this will help to keep your mucus membranes in tip top working order and help to prevent those germs from penetrating your throat and nose and making you sick.
The water you drink – did you know?
You would think that we naturally consume clean filtered water all day, every day. Unfortunately, this is not the case and the reason Waterways have developed a CC1 Quad Action filtration system. This system has been specifically designed to provide you with a constant source of clean, sweet tasting water.
Why is it important to consume clean water? With the increase of pollutants which are finding their way into our water supply, resulting in our water being filled with a high percentage of water toxins.
So not only is it important that you drink water, it is also essential that you and your family drink clean filtered water.
At Waterways, CC1 Quad Action Filter will filter out all of the harmful bacteria, viruses, pesticides and herbicides and reduce harmful chemicals that are found in the water you consume, providing you with a convenient, high quality filtered water and an environmentally friendly alternative to spring bottled waters, for a fraction of the cost.
Wishing you and your family a great festive season and a prosperous 2017.
