Drinking water improves your concentration, skin, energizes your muscles, and helps your internal system, but despite knowing that water is good for us, most people don’t drink enough of it. In the grand scheme, looking at your entire life, drinking lots of water doesn’t seem to be something people should be overly concerned about. Drinking water, however, is a way of taking care of yourself. People feel miserable depending on a multitude of factors; one variable that is underestimated is our physical well-being. Often times, we forget to take care of ourselves and it ends up affecting how we live the rest of our day.
There are absolutely times when we are both hungry and angry, but the truth is that mental state is more dependent on our physical state than we like to admit. Are you really furious at someone, or are you just too tired to deal with someone talking? Are you overwhelmed or do you need a nap? The slang “Hangry” exists because so many people get confused between whether or not they are angry or hungry.
Drinking water isn’t going to cure depression. Excercise doesn’t make people not have an anxiety disorder. Eating healthy meals isn’t going to make people suddenly not schizophrenic. However, doing all these little things does make a difference, and for the better. No matter how you are feeling, it is good to take care of your body. While we like to separate ourselves from it, our bodies are ourselves. You need maintenance, you need to recharge, you need some time to sleep, and you need fuel. So drink lots of water, eat good food, and get some sleep! It may not seem like much, but it makes a difference.
