Good Health Monday ~ Drinking Water
"Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's." (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
We can glorify God in our body by taking care of it. We should be mindful of our health. God can use us more effectively when we are in good health. So that way we can go out and spread His good news.
With that in mind, each Monday, I will give you tips, nutrition information, and any other information that promotes good health and keeping in shape. It is God's will for us to be in good health. "Dear friend, I hope all is well with you and that you are as healthy in body as you are strong in spirit,"
(3 John 1:2)
Water is something I need to drink more. There are times I will drink at least 3 bottles of water in a day. And there are other times, when I barely get in one bottle. I am making an effort to drink more water. Drinking water has its benefits.
I read a few from Mangosteen Natural Remedies
The functions of water in human body are vital. The water:
•Transport nutrients and oxygen into cells
•Moisturizes the air in lungs
•Helps with metabolism
•Protect our vital organ
•Helps our organs to absorb nutrients better
•Regulates body temperature
•Protect and moisturizes our joints
So, as you can see, drinking water is a vital part of a balance diet. If you are not a big water drinker, try putting cucumbers and lemon in your water. That's right cucumbers. It's a fun way to add flavor to your water, as well as take advantage of all the nutrients that cucumbers and lemon have to offer in your water.
If you are always on the go, try to put a few bottles of water in a cooler and put it in your car. You can sip on water while you are driving. Even try drinking a glass a water before eating a meal. And if you are dining out, order a glass of water with your meal.
