Stay Hydrated

Drinking water can help keep your body healthy and functioning at its highest capacity. We are told from a young age to drink water, without asking the benefits of water. The fact of the matter is: water has numerous effects on the body and our overall health. It keeps our memory sharp, stabilizes and boosts our mood, and prevents headaches. Recommended water intake is based on sex, age, activity level, and other factors, such as if you’re pregnant. There are many warning signs that your body is lacking water (see infographic).
