Did you know that the recommended daily allowance of water a day is 8-12 eight ounce glasses? If you're like me, I don't have the brain cells to fit water consumption into my daily routine, so it is hit and miss how much I consume. Then I read an article about the health benefits of drinking water. Did you know it helps keep your blood the right consistency and improves heart health? It also helps lubricate your joints, which helps with arthritis symptoms. Plus, it increases blood flow to the skin, making it healthier looking and reducing wrinkles. On top of all that, It helps your whole digestive system to work more regularly and helps regulate your body temperature and fight infections.
Well, after reading all that, I thought maybe it would be worth my while to work on drinking more water. Amazingly enough, I found that when I started trying to drink enough water, my skin did look a lot better and my joints felt a lot better, too. There's just one catch. If I plan on straying too far from home, like to say take a kid to school or something, I find that I may soon end up needing something like this:
I don't want to find out where all the public restrooms between school and home are, and I don't want to go back to buying diapers anytime soon. Catch 22; either I run around wrinkly, creaky and dehydrated or I live with an overactive bladder. Kegel exercises, anyone?
