The Importance Of Staying Hydrated
We all know drinking water is essential for mental performance and physical health. Despite this, the majority of us are in a constant state of mild dehydration, partly because we don’t always know how much water we should drink every day, and often because we have no way of tracking our intake.
Water is a vital source of life, influencing 100% of the processes in our body, we need it to live, function and thrive. While the benefits of drinking water are well documented across a wide spectrum of research, we often don’t drink enough for optimal health. If you need extra incentives to ensure you remain properly hydrated, keep these benefits top of mind to encourage multiple trips to the water cooler.
