Rather understandably, hot drinks are extremely popular in the winter. Whilst many of us need our tea or coffee to get us up and running in the morning, the cold, January climes mean our hot drinks machines are working overtime throughout the entire working day rather than just the start. This is all well and good: we’re certainly not one to criticise the consumption of hot drinks in the slightest. However, while the hot drinks machine can’t attract enough visitors, your water cooler nearby is struggling for attention, and this isn’t good. Your health is at risk.
Here’s a fact for you; if you’re not drinking enough water, your body is secretly suffering without you really knowing about it.
It’s quite often the case in children and teenagers, whose action packed, entertaining lifestyles remarkably can’t make room for regular hydration. Though while all you parents out there encourage your kids to change that worrying reality, it’s quite easy to forget that you need to consume enough fluids yourself. As a general rule, that’s 3 litres for men and 2.2 litres for women on a daily basis.
It’s somewhat a rarity in this country to be filled with promise upon viewing the weather forecast, yet we have reason to be excited for this coming week. The whole of the UK are set to revel in scorching temperatures to which will peaktoday, and the hot conditions are set to rival those in Spain and Greece. While this will be gratefully appreciated, it does mean that the importance of keeping hydrated is higher than ever.
It’s common knowledge that drinking fluids is vital to our body functioning properly and avoiding dehydration. Water makes up two-thirds of the weight of a healthy body so drinking enough, or sometimes more than enough, is vital.
