When someone drinks an adequate amount of water a day, many benefits arise with it. Water doesn’t necessarily have to be boring. For example, Helen Lee Schifter, who practices tea ceremonies, discusses how she gets her water intake through tea. Adding slices of lemon or fruit to water can make it much more enjoyable and motivating to drink.

Women should drink around 80 ounces of water a day. On the other hand, men should be drinking around 100 ounces. This keeps the body hydrated and prepared to fight off illnesses. Water can also help with digestion and weight management. It can also help with clearing millions of toxins in the body. Kidneys and livers are very important to humans because it helps us function properly. Without water, those organs, and many others, would shrivel up or stop working. Water keeps us going so it’s important that significant amounts are quenched. It may be harder than it seems in the beginning, but in the end, drinking so much water is worth the amazing health perks that follow. Even Helen Lee Schifter contended that drinking over the suggested amount is a great way to stay healthy.
