Keep Calm and Stay Hydrated!
At least half of your body is made up of water, which adds up to approximately 10-12 gallons. While the specific percentage of water in the body varies from person to person, depending on factors such as body composition, age and gender, it’s important to remember every cell, tissue and organ in your body needs water to function.
In order to keep your body functioning normally – and to avoid dehydration – you need to provide it with an ongoing supply of water. Signs of dehydration include:
• Excessive thirst
• Dry mouth
• Little or no urination
• Muscle weakness
• Feeling light-headed
Just because your body needs at least eight cups of water a day doesn’t mean you have to stand at the faucet constantly. Rather, you can get your daily water requirement from drinking and eating. Fruits and veggies are great sources to help keep you hydrated!
