The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) is continuing her work with getting Americans healthy by creating a campaign to drink more water. In the video above, the FLOTUS mentions that our bodies are 70 percent water and she encourages everyone to choose to recharge with water.
Michelle Obama has teamed up with Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) to help spread the message. (1) PHA is a nonpartisan, nonprofit that is led by some of the nation’s most respected health and childhood obesity advocates.
The First Lady, Michele Obama is the organization’s honorary chair, and she works with honorary vice-chairmen William H. Frist (a former senator of Maryland) and Mayor Cory A. Booker of Newark.
The campaign cites drinking more water as the single best thing you can do to start a healthy lifestyle, even if you start by increasing your water intake by one glass daily.
Celebrities like Eva Longoria have also signed on to join the Drink Up campaign.
Personally, I try to drink half my body weight in ounces of water a day. I believe that drinking this amount of water helps my skin to be soft and also helps cleanse my body of toxins. Although there isn’t a set number of ounces that is necessary for the human body, I believe it is safe to say that we need more than 8 glasses.
Lack of water can you leave you with a lot of issues (constipated, thirsty, hungry, dry skin and hair, etc.).
Start your pledge of drinking more water by posting a picture of yourself drinking water on Instragram with hashtag #drinkH2O and #ChitaFit.
