Water is what gives our bodies the vitality to stay in motion. Approximately 70% of the body weight is water and one of its jobs is to transport nutrients throughout the body as well as aid digestion and the removal of toxins in the body. It is VERY important to get enough water in our bodies so we don’t get dehydrated. Many times, when our bodies are not running at full capacity, we are dehydrated. A Doctor once told me that the majority of times that people are HUNGRY they are actually THIRSTY! Irritability, digestion problems, headaches, and overall lack of motivation can all have their roots in dehydration. AMAZING!
There are numerous reasons for dehydration. Changes in weather, caffeine, alcohol, and drug use, a long shower, strenuous activity and exercise, or quite simply, not enough water intakes, are all contributing factors that can dehydrate the body. It’s important to keep aware of your activities and notice when you may need to drink a cup (or two or three!) of H2O.
