Drink Water – Are You Serious?
We are in the “hot days of summer,” and I recently spent a day away from my routine. I’m usually pretty good about drinking water while working at my desk, but we all have those times when life gets crazy and we don’t do the things we would normally do to take care of ourselves. SO, I drank a couple of cans of diet soda and not one sip of water all day! Boy did I feel bad that evening and even the following day! I never realized how important keeping well hydrated is to my body.
The American Dietetic Society states
that we need to drink eight to nine 8-oz. glasses of water every day.
That’s when we aren’t overly hot and sweating! Ceclia Silva, BA from our
Stead Cardiac and Wellness Center explained that there are two ways to
tell if you are dehydrated: “First is if your urine is yellow and the
other is if you are feeling thirsty, because that means you are already
past being well hydrated.”
Going to put this arctile to good use now.
I''m going to drink more water..
