Drinking 2 Litres of Water Every Day
September 26 - October 2
This week I challenged myself to drink 2 litres of water every day. However, before I dive into my experience and outcome, I would like to highlight the perceived benefits of drinking enough water. According to Healthline and MedicalNewsToday, drinking enough water can help with the following:
- Increased energy levels
- Better memory and focus
- Prevent and treat headaches
- Prevent and treat hangovers
- Help with weight loss
- Help maintain healthy and smooth skin.
I successfully drank 2 litres of water every day from Monday, September 26 to Sunday, October 2. I think this goal is the easiest one on my list, so I am not surprised I completed it successfully. I specifically choose to tackle it first because of this too. However, I drank the water somewhat sporadically throughout the days and sometimes ended up drinking a bunch of water at the end of the day to complete the challenge. I also took pictures every time I filled up my water bottle and finished it, which helped me stay a lot more accountable.
I’ll be honest; I did not see that much of a change in my general health or well-being at the end of the week. The only difference I noticed was that I ate fewer snacks throughout the day because I was full of water.
