Drink it up!


I just got a new water bottle.....
it holds 72 oz.

So, this is a little reminder...DRINK UR WATER!

Drink half your body weight in ounces :-)


Some fun water facts:

Water is the basis and essential of all life, and that includes your body. One can go quite a few days without food, but no one lasts longer than 3 to 5 days without water. Chronic dehydration is very common and it might be the root cause of many illness and diseases. Water is about 80% of an infant's weight, 70% in adults and 60% in the elder. The older we get, the less water we drink, and the more ailments we develop latter in life, all could be as simple as not drinking enough water every day.

Dehydration occurs when the body receives less water than it required. When your body is lack of water:

- By 1%, creates extreme thirst. Your mouth is dry. By now, your body has already started to malfunction. Never wait until you feel thirsty to drink water.
- By 5% can cause a slight fever.
- By 8% will cause glands to stop producing saliva, skin starts to turn blue
- By 10%, your tongue will swells, your kidneys started to fail, muscles go into spasms and you will have trouble walking.
- When you are 10% short of water, your skin will crack, organs will grind to a halt and you may die!

Why is water important to humans?

1. The majority of every cell in the body is made up with water

  1. The crazy part is that it's such a simple fix - to carry a bottle around and have a sip or two - it's even super cheap. Yet so many of us don't drink enough.

    I'm trying hard to drink enough water at the moment. Someone I know has just suffered a number of health problems, the cause probably being that he regularly does not drink enough water. I'm finding that it takes effort to start with, but once you form a pattern it just becomes normal.
