Hello Water Friend,

It is a well-known fact that the underlying cause of almost all illnesses and disease conditions in the body is stress, especially chronic stress.

What most people don’t know is that dehydration is the number one cause of stress in the human body. And stress can cause further dehydration. It's a vicious cycle.

The reason that dehydration has this effect on the body is complex, but suffice it to say that water is essential to every aspect of brain and nervous system function.

Thus, one of the simplest and most effective ways to minimize the effects of holiday stress on your body is to drink more water on a daily basis.

Drinking enough water daily can also help prevent anxiety, depression, as well as some mood and sleep disorders.

If you are experiencing more stress this holiday season or just want to minimize it, check out our feature article on 6 simple ways to prevent stress.

Avoiding stressors and taking action to prevent stress is usually more effective than trying to get stress "relief" when you're in the middle of it.

Last but not least, if you've ever considered purchasing a drinking water filter or a whole house filtration system, now is a good time to get the best deals.

If interested, you might want to check out the December water filter specials with a few of our favorite brands. Note: Most of the water filter sales will start this coming weekend.

We hear a lot about ways to relieve stress, such as enjoying a hot bath after work, going for a walk, or drinking a calming herbal tea such as chamomile.

What is not talked about much though is how to prevent the stress response in the body and how to avoid stressful situations that leave us upset, scatterbrained or tense.

It makes sense that we should try to stay away from the things that cause us to be upset, but sometimes it is not that easy. Whether it is the difficult boss, spouse, child or situation, sometimes we just can’t wish a problem away.

The following are 6 simple ways to prevent and/or avoid the everyday stressors.
