Stay Hydrated – Drink Water
To the Hybrid Boomer – your support is appreciated.
To stay hydrated – drink water! While performing daily work tasks, keeping a bottle of water within reach is a necessary reminder to drink enough water.
Drinking enough water is a big deal, especially for people who drink sodas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but very little water!
Just how much water a person needs to keep their body functioning at its best has always been a debate. Try to drink at least half the body weight in ounces. How much that equates to depends on your body weight. At 150lbs, 75oz’s of water per day is needed. That equals to 9.375 cups (75 divided by 8, since 8oz is 1 cup).
Good Reasons To Drink Water
Here are a few reasons that the best beverage is water – it increases energy & relieves fatigue, promotes weight loss, flushes out toxins, improves skin complexion, maintains regularity, normalizes blood pressure, prevents constipation, flushes bacteria from your bladder, regulates body temperature, and carry’s nutrients and oxygen to your cells.
Water helps the kidneys and liver not have to work so hard to keep your body functioning at its best.
Start sipping at 7 or 8am. Take gulps after meals to wash down your food, during breaks for quick energy boost, after bathroom breaks (how many is another story) and after an afternoon or evening walk.
If running out for an errand take the bottle with you. By 8 or 9pm the water will be gone! Having the container helps to measure your intake and it is a reminder to stay hydrated – drink water.
