Do You Know Your Body?

It might sound like a strange question... but really- do you know your body? 

Do you know what makes you feel good? Do you know what makes you feel bad? Or do you just push on through your day or week and not really pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you? 

Let's dive into this a bit more, because I think its REALLY important.

As you already know, drinking water is VERY important. But why and how much? We'll talk about it all today. 

Water is essential for life. You can only survive a few days without it. And being hydrated is essential for health. I could argue that water is the most essential nutrient of them all.

Water is needed for every cell and function in your body.

  • Water is a huge part of your blood.

  • It cushions your joints

  • Aids digestion.

  • It helps stabilize your blood pressure and heart beat.

  • It helps to regulate your body temperature. 

  • Helps maintain electrolyte (mineral) balance.

  • And that's just a few of its roles.

On the other hand, dehydration can cause a lot of problems.
