The Benefits of Drinking Water for Anxiety, Mood, and More 0

Your body is mostly water. If you don't get enough water, you don't feel as good as you could physically or mentally. 

I spent 4 years researching and writing a book about the impact of diet on anxiety and specific anti-anxiety foods and supplements. The number one recommendation on my list of anti-anxiety foods is . . . water.
