Your body uses water in all its cells, organs, and tissues to help regulate its temperature and maintain other bodily functions. Because your body loses water through breathing, sweating, and digestion, it's important to rehydrate by drinking fluids and eating foods that contain water.
The Functions of Water
Water is a carrier, distributing essential nutrients to cells, such as minerals, vitamins and glucose.
Chemical and metabolic reactions
Water removes waste products including toxins that the organs’ cells reject, and removes them through urine and feces.
Transport of nutrients
Water participates in the biochemical break-down of what we eat.
Body temperature regulation
Water has a large heat capacity which helps limit changes in body temperature in a warm or a cold environment. Water allows the body to release heat when ambient temperature is higher than body temperature (1). The body begins to sweat, and the evaporation of water from the skin surface very efficiently cools the body.
Elimination of waste
Water is an effective lubricant around joints. It also acts as a shock absorber for eyes, brain, spinal cord and even for the foetus through amniotic fluid.

Being a little selfish can be a good thing. This is your life and not anyone else's. Why wouldn't you be an expert at knowing what you need? Pleasing everyone is not possible nor is it required. Why should you have to?
The same people who try to keep you closed in and dancing to their tune are living their lives just the way they desire to. Too many people get so caught up in what others will think of them not realizing the misery that comes along with carrying that weight.
Free yourself from opinions and live your life without fear of judgement. Yes, there is a chance you could possibly fail, but there is also a chance you will succeed. Take ownership for your happiness. It is not your job to make everyone else happy. The people who really love you rejoice when you succeed. Be aware of those who do not clap when you're winning.
Being selfish is putting yourself first, but there are times when you sacrifice for someone else and this is ok. Be sure that you do not sacrifice your own happiness long term.
Check out these four ways to make being selfish a good thing:
