Are You Drinking Enough Water?

Tips to Keep the Fluids Flowing

Are You Drinking Enough Water?Even though we have heard about the importance of drinking water, most Americans are dehydrated. Think about this: your body is composed of 75% water, your brain is composed of 85% water and your blood is 95% water. With that in mind you can now start to see how lack of water can cause many problems such as fatigue, hunger, sugar cravings, and headaches to name a few. Next time you are feeling tired or craving something sweet, try drinking a glass of water and waiting thirty minutes to see if it has subsided.

Ok so how much water should we drink? No worries, it’s easy to figure out. Just divide your weight by two. That’s the number of ounces you should drink during the day. Make sure to adjust that number if you are very active, or live in a warmer climate.

Tips:

1. Keep a glass of water near your bed and drink it first thing in the morning.

2. Purchase a reusable bottle and carry it with you throughout the day.

3. Try setting up a water schedule to ensure that you are hydrating all day long. Avoid chugging water.

4. Add lemon, lime or cucumber to your water to switch it up!

5. Coffee, tea, soda, alcohol and energy drinks contain water but also contain dehydrating agents. Do not count these towards your daily water intake.
