Thank God for unimates! They are the ones that knows and accepts you for all your crap. Watching each other grow for that short 3-4 years was definitely an interesting journey for me. My life wouldn't be the same without the friends I had in my Foundation and Degree years, they just know how to brighten up a gloomy day!
I couldn't believe that it's been 7 years since we knew each other! It's crazy how much "those were the days..." we now use everytime we catch up.
"Remember, we used to karaoke every week after class?"
"I still remember we used to FIFA the whole night till morning and order the best burger nearby when we were hungry."
"We once could stay up 24-h just to finish our assignments and still can go to class the next day. Ohmygosh, those were the days when we had the energy."
Truly, it's so different now. As we grew older, of course, we are much wiser now (hopefully), we realised that we are really not that young anymore. Being in our mid-20s, sleep deprivation is a sin now and long gone the days where we could go living out unhealthy lifestyles. This includes levelling up our water intake by choosing to drink more water over any other 'party' or 'gathering' drinks especially those sweet, fizzy ones.
"Water makes up about two thirds of who we are and influences 100% of the processes in our body", says hydration expert Doug Casa, PhD. Thus, drinking enough water should naturally make us feel better. Here are a few reasons why you should choose to hydrate yourself with water:
#1 It helps with losing weight
When you drink water before a meal, it makes you feel full and possibly boost metabolism too. Plus, it's also common for us to mistake thirst for hunger. Thus, the next time when you feel fatigued or sluggish, some H2O might just help to perk you up.
#2 Good for your digestion
Put on your glasses as I'm going to be a little scientific here - in the large intestine, water binds with fibre to increase the bulk of the stools, reduce transit time and make elimination easier. When you don't drink enough water, the colon pulls water from stools, increasing your risk of constipation. #FACT
#3 May protect you from some types of cancer
It's been studied that the greater the fluid intake (results more significant with water), the lower the chances of getting bladder cancer because it's possible that urinating more frequently prevents the buildup of bladder carcinogens. Also, keeping yourself hydrated may also reduce the risk of colon cancer and breast cancer.
#4 It improves mood and alertness
Oh yes, it refreshes us and improves our state of mind! Feeling tired is one of the first signs of dehydration, thus filling up on H2O could zap the sleepiness away!
#5 Helps you look good!
Of course, being a beauty blogger, how can I not say this. Water helps to improve skin complexion. We've read so much about this. Water moisturises your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. It even helps to reduce wrinkles, it's the best anti-ageing treatment around!
