Wet Your Whistle This New Year with…WATER!
With the New Year quickly approaching, people are going to start making and implementing their grand 2010 New Year’s Resolutions. Ultimately a lot of people will choose to “be healthier”, which is a great resolution but people tend to fall off the “healthy” wagon (hence why so many make new commitments each year to it). But being healthy can be super easy if you make your number one health goal to DRINK LOTS OF WATER!
Water is an understated, underrated, underappreciated necessary nutrient because hydration is so important to the functionality of the human body. Water helps with digestion, removes toxins (get rid of the toxic pumpkin pie sitting in your gut), cushions joints (as you start your new workout routine), controls body temperature and most importantly helps with mental performance (like, duh).
It’s been estimated that up to 80% of the U.S. adult population goes through their normal day in at least a mildly dehydrated state. And, if one reports for work, school or life dehydrated, the odds of that circumstance improving during the day aren’t very good. In addition, dehydration can be masked in hunger pains so when a person feels hungry it could just be the body screaming for water. So hydrate, hydrate, hydrate with tap water and reusable water bottles – your body, mind and landfills will thank you!
