You brain loves water so much that its highly influenced by how much water you drink in a day. Even mild dehydration can affect many aspects of brain function. 

In a study of young women, fluid loss of 1.36% after exercise impaired both mood and concentration, and increased the frequency of headaches.

Another similar study, this time in young men, showed that fluid loss of 1.59% was detrimental to working memory and increased feelings of anxiety and fatigue.

Sometimes we mistake thirst for hunger and eat something instead of having a glass of water. Drinking enough water therefore means you won't need to eat as much to replace the feeling of 'hunger'. When you think you're hungry have a glass of water and keep sipping, if after 30 minutes you still feel hungry then grab a snack.
