One of the pieces of the health puzzle that is often forgotten is water. I'm as guilty of this as anyone. But if you think about it, with our bodies being about 2/3 water, it should be the first item we address on our checklist.
Many experts suggest that the amount of water you drink every day is calculated simply by dividing your current body weight in half, and drink that many ounces of water every day.
For example, if you weight 150 pounds, you should consume 75 ounces of water every day. If you weight 200 pounds, you should consume 100 ounces.
Their are a ton of benefits: less toxins in the body, better digestion, better joint health, better blood circulation, etc... essentially everything your body does will work better when it has enough water.
