Are you drinking enough - water?

Remember the 'ol 8 glasses of water a day guideline? I was convinced that I drank plenty of water until I set out to drink those 8 glasses a day. Discovered that I was really drinking a lot of coffee & a little tea & an itsy bitsy bit of water.

Guess what one of the symptons of dehydration is? Poor concentration/fatigue ... Others include: Headaches * Constipation * Reduced urine output or dark urine.

Wait! There's more - like this fun fact: The brain is 83 per cent water. Lack of water can cause depression, dementia, anxiety, confusion, delirium and aggravation.

So, drink up my friends & energize! For more information, click here
