Are you drinking enough water?

Are you drinking enough water? Thirst is a worst indicator for hydration; we may have already lost 1%-2% of body water by the time we feel thirsty. If we are exercising and are dehydrated our performance will decrease. We can also lose our mental focus and clarity. Under normal, non-exercise conditions we can dehydrate by drinking to little water. Depending how dehydrated a person is she can feel several symptoms like headaches, fatigue, low blood pressure, dizziness, and flushing are just a few a person can encounter. Remember soda, juices, coffee, teas or any other beverage will never substitute water.

Make sure you keep yourself well hydrated, especially before working out. Try to get a head start by drinking at least 2 cups (500mL. water bottle) before you begin. Hydration before and after exercising is very important to get the most out of your workout. Water balance is a must in order to maintain a healthy body and mind.
