The Importance of Hydration
Monday, Coach Audy threw down the first of her new weekly wellness actions. She is encouraging us all to make healthy choices this week by focusing on either getting 3 vegetables in per day or drinking 72oz. of water every day. If you want to make an easy improvement to your life - drink more water.
Hydration is an often overlooked health practice that has numerous benefits. Being adequately hydrated can make your skin look great, help reduce joint pain, reduce hunger, and a whole mess of other good things. Check out the image below, click on it if you like, to learn all the benefits of staying adequately hydrated.
One of the reasons I suggest focusing on your hydration is because water has seven primary functions in our body:
If your preferred quaff contains carbohydrates, e.g. coconut water, beer, wine, scotch, the carbs impact your blood chemistry and don't have the same hydrating effect. It's ok to drink these beverages, but anything over 8 ounces doesn't count toward your overall hydration goal. Want to participate in Coach Audy's weekly wellness action? You need to consume 72 ounces of water everyday this week.
