Hydrated or Dehydrated?

Oct 27, 2021

Hydration. Are you drinking enough water?

Water makes up over half of who we are!! Thus, different cells in our body contain different amounts of water. Did you know that muscle and brain tissue are about 75% water?

We take in water through FOOD and DRINKS. Did you know that depending on what you eat you can take in almost 4 cups of water from food alone? Think of raw fruits and veggies and cooked whole grains.

Now even though our bodies regulate thirst, we tend to take in MORE during warmer weather, after exercise, or if it’s dry out. We tend to take in LESS when it’s cold, humid, or we haven’t worked out. Unfortunately we don’t notice thirst until we are starting to get dehydrated. Some signs can include:

 

  1. Headache
  2. Fatigue 
  3. Dizziness
  4. Nausea
  5. Increased heart rate

 

Make sure you have a plan to keep yourself hydrated!

 

  1. Set water by your bed.
  2. Have a water bottle ready to fill each morning.
  3. Take hourly water breaks, even if it’s only a few sips. (They add up.)
  4. Have fresh veggies/fruits for a snack with water.

 

These are just some small actions that you can take to make sure you’re keeping your body hydrated!!
