It’s a simple fact the human body needs water and the more active you are, the more water you need to stay hydrated.
Up to 60% of the adult human body is water. So how much water does an adult need to drink each day? The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends men get roughly three liters of total beverage intake every day, and women get 2.2 liters. (Approximately – 1 liter = 32 ounces = 1 quart US)
One of the best ways to remain hydrated is to drink water. Whether at work or at play, I would recommend carrying a safe reusable glass bottle filled with water; either flavored water or plain water.
Simply fill your glass bottle at the water cooler while at work and keep it on your desk. You will be surprised at the amount of water you end up drinking because the water is right in front of you all day long. When working out, having your glass bottle filled with your favorite drink allows you to stay hydrated. Most gyms, yoga studios and other facilities have a water station or a water cooler at their location so you can fill up your reusable bottle when you arrive and stay hydrated while you’re there.
Take a glass reusable bottle with you when you do errands, or meet with friends. It shows people your commitment to the environment by not having a plastic prefilled one time use bottle.
So staying thirsty (dehydrated) my friends can lead to many issues, some include; Dry mouth, Dry Skin, Headache, and many other issues.
As the Dos EquisTM, Most interesting man in the world says, “Stay thirsty my friends”, I am changing it for drinking water…“I don’t always drink water but when I do, it keeps me hydrated.”
So…..Stay Hydrated My Friends!!
