Drink Water

Water is so refreshing. And good for you. Drink plenty. You’ll feel so much better if you’re hydrated. In college I learned that an estimated 75% of the population is dehydrated. That figure blew me away. And if you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. So drink when you’re not even thirsty yet. A general rule: drink 8-10 glasses of water a day (more if you live at a high altitude or dry climate) or drink half your body weight in fluid ounces. What does water do for us?

 

  • transports nutrients to cells
  • maintains body temperature
  • promotes weight loss (by flushing down by-products of fat breakdown and helping you feel more full)
  • healthier looking skin (replenishes and moisturizes skin tissues)
  • increases brain function
  • helps in digestion
  • helps fight sickness
  • relieves fatigue (flushes out toxins which makes less work for your organs)
  • speeds recovery
  • you’ll feel better
