Keep Hydrated the Easy Way In order for your body to stay healthy, you need to stay hydrated, which means that you need to drink sufficient water throughout the day.

Drinking water regularly is the most important thing that you can do for your health. Your body consists of around 70% water in order to keep it healthy and functioning optimally. There is water in every single cell of your body and when there is insufficient water then your body cannot function – you will become thirsty, fatigued, get headaches, and be unable to think coherently enough to do even simple calculations.

The problem is that most individuals only drink something when they feel thirsty at which time you are in actual fact already around 2% dehydrated. Drinking water at this stage will help to replenish your body’s water reserves, but if you do not drink water at this stage, the dehydration will only become worse.

It is not difficult to stay hydrated; all it takes is getting into some regular but easy habits:

  • Begin each day with a large glass of water to kick-start your metabolism;
  • If you do not like drinking plain water, drink some lemon water instead;
  • Keep a glass jug of water that can hold around 10 glasses of water on your and instead of drinking your water in huge gulps, sip slowly throughout the day;
  • Make sure that you drink water throughout the day even if you drink other liquids;
  • If you are doing some physical work or doing some form of exercise for a prolonged period, drink water beforehand and drink a sports drink filled with electrolytes after;
  • Add some flavour to your drinking water enhancing it with slices of lemon, orange or a few berries.

You can also get some of your daily liquid requirements from eating water-rich fruit and vegetables such as watermelon, berries, pears, apples, peaches, lettuce, watercress, cucumber, zucchini, tomato, radish, eggplant, and celery.
