As simple as it sounds, water is a great source for energy. When our bodies are low on water, dehydration becomes the reason why some people experience headaches or get tired really quickly. Concentration is also affected when you don't drink enough water. If you feel plain water isn't that interesting, try using a few pieces of citrics, strawberry or cucumber to add a bit of extra flavor to water.
