Keeping Hyrated

Reasons to Stay Hydrated

It Boosts Brainpower

Next time you feel like you are reacting a bit slow to your friends’ jokes, consider drinking some water.

Drinkging water when you feel thirsty can help you think and act. People who drink water before performing a series of cognitive tasks reacted faster than those who did not.

It Helps Maintain the Balance of Body Fluids

Did you know more than half of your body is composed of water? All this water helps with critical functions like maintaining body temperature, cushioning and protecting vital organs and aiding in digestion.

On hot days, your body loses water through increased sweating. And not drinking about water can interfere with your body’s necessary functions. This can lead to dehydration and if untreated, can develop into heatstroke or heat exhaustion.

It Will Improve Your Mood

Lack of sleep isn’t the only cause of headaches, irritability and fatigue. Studies suggest that increasing your daily amount of water intake can reduce the duration and intensity of headaches.

When your body is low on water, blood vessels will dilate, causing swelling and worsening the feeling of a headache. According to the NIH, if you’re experiencing dizziness, this is a sign of dehydration. You should drink small amounts of water slowly over time.
