Each day is a little different when we think about hydration. Every day is a good day to make sure we are taking care of what our bodies need. Some days a few glasses are easy and some days it just isn't quite enough.
“In time and with water, everything changes.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci
In this episode I talk about ways to increase hydration and maintain that feeling. My biggest tip is to place opportunities wherever you go, after that you can add flavor, freshly squeezed lemon, electrolytes, and more. There is also the tip of staying away from things that dehydrate us. I'm not talking about exercise here, where we sweat it out but rather avoiding accessive alcohol, and diuretics such as coffee. Listen in to learn more.
There are formulas for how much you should drink. I personally can feel it in my body and gauge a day by how I digest and process the water. Our body gives us all the clues.
Your weight is one variable that changes the amount of water you should be drinking. To help you establish a baseline, you can use the following rule-of-thumb equation described in U.S. News & World Report. In short, the equation tells you to take half your body weight and drink that amount in ounces of water.
