Hydration is Key!

Hydration plays a huge role in health and wellbeing. Proper hydration can decrease headaches and muscle aches caused from dehydration. It can also help you decrease your calorie intake. Drinking enough water is crucial for body temperature regulation, lubricating joins, preventing infections and keeping organs and cells functioning properly. Being hydrated also improves mood and cognition which can help decrease anxiety and symptoms of depression. 

How much is enough? The USDA recommends drinking a minimum of 9-12 cups of water a day. Not sure if your getting enough? Check your urine it should be clear or light in color; urine color is a great indicator of hydration.  

There are simple ways to increase your water intake: Consider the following.

  • Don't wait till you're thirsty to drink, when you start to feel thirsty you're already slightly dehydrated.
  • Keep a water bottle handy.
  • Drink a glass of water before eating a meal, this can also help prevent you from over eating.
  • Feel like grazing? Drink some water.
  • Set a reminder on your phone.
  • Eat water-rich fruits and veggies.

Bored of just drinking water? Try adding some flavor. Consider fruits, herbs or veggies to flavor your water. Try some of these delicious combinations.

Increase your water intake today and feel the difference!
