      HYDRATION

      BUT HOW MUCH WATER DO WE ACTUALLY NEED?

      On average our bodies are made up of about 60% water so keeping hydrated is really important. We lose water all the time by sweating, going to the bathroom and even breathing. Its suggested that we drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day but I find drinking plain water really hard so here are some ideas for sprucing up your water and getting more fluids into you on a daily basis:

      1  Keep a bottle of water with you all the time- in your bag, the car or on your desk at work

      2  Add a slice of lemon or lime to your water- I start every day with warm water and lemon. When you wake up your body is dehydrated after a long nights sleep so this is an ideal way to start every day .It is now simply a daily habit that I do automatically.

      3  If you find it tough to remember to drink water set an alarm on your phone. I do this if I’m really busy and it works!

      4  Remember that we often mistake hunger for thirst so if in doubt drink first as true hunger will not be satisfied by drinking water.

      5  Experiment with the different flavours of herbal teas and reduce the amount of caffeinated drinks you have as caffeine is a diuretic.

      6  Include more water rich foods in your diet. A few examples are: cucumber, watermelon, strawberries, star fruit and peppers.

      7  Check your urine to check your hydration. If you’re well-hydrated your urine will be mostly clear with a tinge of yellow.
