7 Reasons To Drink More Water During The Holidays

As your family and friends gather to celebrate the holidays, you typically offer something to quench their thirst. Water often takes a backseat to cold brews and sweet beverages, but science backs it - those extra trips to the faucet, or Culligan water dispenser, can prevent dehydration that can interfere with brain function and mood. Culligan Lake of the Ozarks wants to help you stay happily hydrated during the holidays with these creative reasons to keep your glass full of filtered, better-tasting water.

1. Relieve Fatigue

Feeling exhausted after cooking, cleaning, entertaining and running around after children? The holidays are a wonderful time of the year but for many, inviting friends and family into your home can leave you dragging in the evening, or even by mid-day. Fatigue is one of the first signs of dehydration and even a small drop in your body's water levels can hurt you. The Institute of Medicine recommends approximately 2 to 3 liters of water per day.   

2. Improve Mood

If your household is like so many others around the holidays, there are lots of personalities, demanding lots of attention. You may find yourself overwhelmed and feeling a bit crabby. If so, take time to make more stops at the water cooler. Even mild dehydration can negatively affect your mood and ability to think - and you need to be your best, especially during the holidays!

3. Treat A Headache

If a dull ache creeps up in your head this holiday, the first thing that you can do to get some relief is drink plenty of water. To prevent a headache, drink filtered Culligan water frequently. Dehydration has been found to play a major role in the development of headaches, especially migraines. 

4. Help In Digestion 

Nearly 30 percent of indigestion is a result of dehydration. The body requires copious amounts of water to digest an average meal, and let's be honest, meals around the holidays tend to be a little larger than the average day. 

5. Flush Toxins

Water is an excellent detoxifier. If you're serving several beverage options at your holiday event, make water one of them! Drinking water works as a simple yet effective way to flush toxins from your body.

6. Fluid Replenishment

Water is an efficient replacement for lost fluids. Coffee, tea, cola, and alcoholic beverages have a diuretic effect that can actually impede your body from absorbing water. Avoid a negative water balance and drink plenty of water.

7. Aids In Weight Loss

Did you sample the cookies a few too many times or over indulge on the delicious dishes found on the holiday menu? If you need to shed some extra weight after the holidays, water can support you! When you drink water, it fills your stomach and reduces the tendency to eat more, so have a glass before your meal. Substitute water for high-calorie drinks like sodas.  

With all of the festivities surrounding the holidays, it can be easy to forget to drink the appropriate amount of water. With benefits like these, we know you'll want to contact Culligan Lake of the Ozarks and schedule an install for your own Culligan bottled water dispenser or bottle-free water cooler. Don't forget, as you're busy enjoying this holiday season, we'll bring the water to you! Your friends, family, and especially, your health will thank you!
