I just can’t say enough to my classes how important it is to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Water helps every part of the body work properly. We lose water as we work out and sweat.. even as we breathe! Especially those of use who live in hotter climates. It is recommended that people drink between six and eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. If you are active, work out often, are sick, pregnant, or breast feeding then you should drink even more water or other liquids. If you don’t drink enough water, you will become dehydrated. Sure signs of this are head-ache, dizziness, dry mouth and eyes, and you may pass little urine. Your urine is another way of noticing if you are getting enough fluid in your diet.. It should be clear or pale yellow. If you are not drinking enough it will be a darker yellow and may even have a strong odor.
Drinking enough water will help keep you healthy and happy, as it flushes all of the gunk out of your body. Have a glass of water.. it’s free!
