As Summer takes hold, the hotter days and outdoor activities that cause us to sweat more remind me that it’s a good time to talk about dehydration. When you look at what it takes for our bodies to thrive, no other substance besides oxygen plays a bigger role than water. Just about every function in our body requires water. Our bodies are always prioritizing resources, sending those resources to “mission critical” areas first, and allowing other, less survival-dependent tissues to go without. The body does this with water too, so waiting till you are thirsty typically means you are waiting until your body is significantly past the point of being dehydrated. You may not realize it, but your body has been trying to tell you this for some time. Here are 5 ways that your body is letting you know:
In closing, your body has many ways of communicating with you. You just have to listen! A great first step in improving your overall health is to drink enough water. We recommend taking your body weight and dividing by 2. This is the number of ounces you should drink per day — and even more if you’re exercising and sweating (which you should also be doing!). Seem like a lot? Well, you’re probably dehydrated :)
