Talking about Hydration

Drinking water several times a day is critical to our bodies. Most Americans are perpetually dehydrated. This means that our bodies and especially our brains do not have enough moisture to do their jobs. When you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated.

The military over in Iraq and Afghanistan have trained our troop to drink throughout the day and night without waiting to get “thirsty.” We need to do that, too, at all ages but especially as we age.

Drinking juices or soda pop or even milk will not give our bodies what it really need – good old fashioned water. So, as you sit there reading this, stop, go get yourself a nice big glass of water and have it sitting next to you to sip on.
