Needless to say one of the health and wellness goals I struggle with most is hydration.
On my desk this morning I have a Xenergy + Hydration (caffeine free) and a 72 ounce BPA free water jug. It is going to be a new goal to finish at least one of these every day. I get sooooo bored drinking regular old water (we have Sparkletts here in the office) so I have been experimenting with the flavored enhancers.
Some of my favorites:
MIO Strawberry Watermelon
MIO Berry Pomegranate
Crystal Light Liquid in Blueberry Raspberry
Crystal Light Liquid in Strawberry Lemonade (tastes like a pink Starburst!)
Crystal Light powder in Mojito
The human body is anywhere from 55% to 78% water depending on age, gender and body fat primarily. It is essential to human life (DUH!).
Without proper hydration some of the effects you might feel are fatigue, muscle weakness, poor concentration, headaches, dizziness and/or decreased metabolism.
DECREASED metabolism?!?! I didn't know that last one. I've been in the gym getting in shape for my upcoming wedding. I didn't know not hydrating properly was working against me too!
So do yourself a favor and make an effort to drink more water. You'll feel the difference almost immediately, I know I have.
Stay hydrated my friends!
