How much water should I drink?
“Wa-ter you doing?” Everyone knows that you should be drinking plenty of water daily. How much do you ask? There’s no right or wrong answer but usually 6 to 8 glasses a day. Now, I'm not saying to overdo it but there are benefits to drinking water.
- Water gives you the energy to magnify your physical performance.
- Boost skin care.
- Gut health.
- Hydrates the body cells.
- And much more.
Your body depends on water to survive as all the body functions need water to work efficiently. Our bodies are made up of an average of 60% of water. If you don’t have much water intake you will feel fatigued, you’ll see that your strength is decreasing, you will not be motivated to do anything, you will have headaches, etc.
How to drink more water
How to maintain drinking water you ask? It’s not hard. Always carry a water bottle for easy access. If you’re someone who needs flavor, shop for sugar-free packets or add in some lemon or lime. It’s definitely a game-changer. There’s no set time when to drink water. But, some tips I’ve learned are drinking a glass in the morning before you have your daily dose of coffee, taking big sips while working out, or even drinking a full glass with every meal.
Dehydration is definitely what everyone needs to be careful about. Especially living somewhere in the heat like Florida. It can get up to 90+ degrees. Water is the best cooling fluid that helps the body to maintain its temperature for all the organs to work properly. For example, water is used to cool down hundreds of kelvin during a Nuclear fusion at a power station.
