SENIOR LIVING: Anti-aging tip: drink more water
By Mark Underwood
Here’s an anti-aging tip so obvious we shouldn’t have to mention it: Water. We’re bringing it up because water doesn’t get the credit it deserves.
Water helps us look, feel and act younger than we are -- keeping healthy and enjoying life to the fullest. If you’re not already doing it, drinking 8-12 eight ounce glasses per day is the guideline. If you prefer it bottled, four per day would do the trick.
Since it has zero calories, drinking water helps you lose weight. It’s a natural headache remedy too, and keeps skin looking healthier. It keeps you more productive, regulates body temps, helps in digestion, and wards off illness. In general, consuming enough water helps keep you in a good mood.
If you want to feel better, knock back at least 8 glasses of water a day. You can’t live without it, so drink up!
