I know that often people say that you should drink between 6–8 glasses of water a day and generally I try to do this. There are lots of things that make it important
- it helps to keep your body working at its best
- it can help to reduce cellulite
- it can help you feel fuller if you drink before a meal
- it helps your complexion
- it is low cost
- has no sugar
- won’t damage your teeth
and I could go on, but this week I really realised why it is so important. On Tuesday I was very busy and really didn’t drink much at all and certainly not my 6-8 glasses of water. By Wednesday I felt I might be getting a water infection and by Thursday I was on the phone to the doctors as it had really taken hold
If you haven’t had a water infection be pleased, as they are not that pleasant and the constant feeling of wanting to pee but then not being able to and having a burning sensation is something to be avoided.
Guess what the first advice with the dose of antibiotics was?
Yes to drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and caffeine.
I won’t be making the same mistake again if at all possible
So just think how much are you drinking each day and would you want the benefits
