You might be dehydrated if you experience these symptoms!
Dehydration has a funny way of sneaking up on you. After all, we all get engrossed in our daily activities, and sometimes we move all too fast throughout our day. We barely take breaks, if any, and skip meals. Another thing we have a tendency to do is forget to drink liquids.
I don’t know about you, but I’m all too good at ignoring basic physical needs such as sleeping, eating, and taking bathroom breaks in order to complete a task that is in front of me. This happens at work and also with family and personal obligations. All too often, we ignore natures cues to maintaining optimal health for something that we think is more important in that moment. But ignoring your body is not a good thing. It can lead to ill health and can compromise your overall well-being.
Drinking water is key to staying healthy. Indeed, we are comprised of up to 60% water in the human adult body. And according to H.H. Mitchell in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, the lungs are approximately 83% water, your skin contains 64% water, your muscles and kidneys are 70% water and your bones are 31% water! So needless to say, drinking enough water each and every day is vital to your good health!
If you don’t drink enough water, you can be subject to numerous health problems. Here are a few signs that you are dehydrated. If you experience any of these symptoms, try stopping what you are doing and take the time to drink a big glass of fresh water. Your body will thank you and your symptoms might miraculously disappear! Remember, these symptoms are your body trying to tell you something. So, listen to it and respond accordingly! Believe us, your body will thank you for it!
