It is shocking to think that in a nation where water is so readily available over 75% of our population walks around dehydrated EVERY DAY!!
Common signs of dehydration:
- fuzzy short-term memory
- trouble with basic math
- difficulty focusing on smaller print ie. computer screens
- daytime fatigue
Pure water is the world’s first and foremost medicine. ~Slovakian Proverb
- Water makes up over 2/3 of the human body
- The average adult sweats one pint of water per day
- The human brain is 95% water
- A 2% drop in water content can spark symptoms of dehydration
You should drink one half of your body weight in ounces of water EVERY day. This does not include tea, coffee, soda, wine or juice.
Example: a 150 pound person will need to drink 75 ounces of water each day.
Tip for Success: I recommend that you measure out the total amount of water needed each day and package it so that you will be more likely to drink it. I use a water bottle that I know needs to be emptied 3 times each day in order for me to reach my goal. I only drink out of that bottle so I know exactly how much water I have consumed each day.
So drink up friends!! All you have to gain is energy, increased brain capacity, better focus and lots of potty breaks!
