This may sound like a no brainer, but stay with me.
How much water have I had to drink today?
Do I measure how much I drink daily?
Is it enough?
What is your answer? Is it good or bad?
Ok, now ask yourself this:
“Do I feel hungry?”
“Do I have lots of energy?”
“Am I fatigued?”
“Do I have a headache?”
“Do I have a dry mouth?”
“How many times do I go to the bathroom each day?”
“Do I have dry skin?”
“Do I get dizzy?”
If you answered YES to some of those questions, you may be dehydrated. In fact, if you are thirsty today it is because you did not drink enough water yesterday!
The rule is to consume at least half your body weight in ounces of water each day.
Water has so many awesome benefits for your body. Water moisturizes the air in the lungs, helps with metabolism, helps our organs absorb nutrients better, detoxifies, protects and moisturizes our joints and helps with weight loss.
I recommend using a good water purifier. I like this one because it also removes lead.
Are you getting thirsty yet? Are you inspired to drink more water?
Here are some tips to help you drink more water:
Drink a full 8 oz in the morning when you wake up.
Drink a glass of water with every snack and meal.
Get water bottle so you can measure your daily intake.
Keep a bottle of water with you in your car, at your desk, or in your bag.
Now, go get your water and drink up!
