Hydration is so important to good health. Did you know that over 70% of your body is made up of water? Being properly hydrated can not only aid in weight loss but also boost physical and mental performance. So why do so many of us seem to be falling short of our water needs and just what are they? A good rule of thumb is to take your body weight and multiply by ½ to 1 oz., this is the amount of water you need in a day.
My habit is to increase the amount of water I get on a daily basis. I plan to do 2 things; First is to have 1 glass of water after I brush my teeth. This will lead to 2 glasses a day. The second is to have a glass of water with each meal, 3 more glasses a day. I hope this will help me to live with less days of chapped lips and dry skin.
