It is so hot outside! I was on a 4-mile walk yesterday and all I could think about was getting a tall, cool glass of water. Thankfully, when I got done, I had an amazing glass of pure water.
According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.
Crazy to think how important water is to every part of our bodies. It can affect our well being, emotions, and definitely our choices. Well hydrated people are more likely to be balanced in their body, soul and spirit thus giving rise to healthier relationships and work output.
KEY POINTS TO KNOW:
- Always drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water every day (more if you are working out and sweating)
- Cut out carbonated drinks (and replace it with something like lemon water)
- Make efforts to drink filtered water (buy a Brita or get a filtered water system at your house)
- May want to add liquid minerals to your water to replace lost electrolytes
Also, sometimes when you have food cravings, you may not be hungry… but thirsty! Next time you reach for a snack, drink a glass of water first.

“But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life….” John 4:14
