Stay hydrated – reminder to up your water intake

We underestimate the importance of staying hydrated. Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue and organ in your body need water to work correctly.

During the hot summer months, heat and sweat can leave your body dehydrated. A lack of water is harmful to your body and can also make you crave food when you’re not actually hungry. It is incredibly important to keep yourself hydrated by drinking at least eight glasses of water a day. Start the day with warm water and fresh lemon juice, a great way to alkaline the body too.

It can be a challenge to drink lots of water but try and always carry a reusable bottle of room temperature water with you, make it a healthy habit. Bored of water? Add some low calorific flavouring to water such as a piece of fruit, or opt for healthy alternatives like green tea or coconut water.
