We are slowly but surely creeping closer to glorious summer nights & warmer temperatures! This makes it all the more essential to check your daily water intake to make sure you are prepared for increased activity in the heat.
We live in a state surrounded by fresh water and in a country where it’s rarely not within reach. With superfluous amounts available, it can be easy to overlook it’s primal need. However, without water, the human body would wither and perish quite rapidly, as every single cell (approximately 30-40 trillion) requires water to function properly.
I always love to tell my clients that drinking water is one of the most intentional habits we must cultivate; once you feel “thirsty” you are already dehydrated! This means you have to consciously make the choice to drink water before any feelings of being parched arrive.
A simple rule of thumb to follow is to drink half your bodyweight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 160 lbs, you would need to drink 80 ounces of water as your baseline. Depending on the temperature, amount of time spent outside, altitude, and your activity level, your body may require more water on a given day.
