DO YOU KNOW WHY YOU NEED WATER?

Staying hydrated means making sure your body has enough water. Water is important for almost everything our bodies do, from thinking clearly to staying active.


WHY WATER MATTERS

  1. Keeps You Moving: Without enough water, you might feel tired and weak, especially during exercise.

  2. Helps You Think: Staying hydrated helps you stay focused and alert. Not drinking enough can make you feel confused or grumpy.

  3. Aids Digestion: Water helps your body break down food and keeps things moving smoothly in your digestive system.

  4. Controls Body Temperature: Water helps cool your body down, especially when you sweat in hot weather or while exercising.

  5. Improves Skin: Drinking enough water keeps your skin looking fresh and healthy.


SIGNS YOU NEED MORE WATER

  • You feel thirsty.

  • Your urine is dark yellow.

  • Your mouth and skin feel dry.

  • You’re feeling tired.

  • You feel dizzy.


TIPS For STAYING HYDRATED

  1. Carry a Water Bottle: Keep one with you and sip from it regularly.

  2. Eat Watery Foods: Foods like watermelon and cucumbers help you stay hydrated.

  3. Set Reminders: Use your phone or notes to remind you to drink water.

  4. Add Flavor: If plain water is boring, add a slice of lemon or some mint.

  5. Balance Electrolytes: When sweating a lot, sports drinks can help replace lost salts, but watch out for added sugars.
