I had my first cross country meet of the season today. It went really well. We also ran a mile in gym and from all my practices I’m extremely sore! I’ve also been extremely thirsty today. Drinking water throughout the day is very important. Especially if you have been doing any physical activity.
I try to drink 6-8 cups of water a day. Every body has a different opinion on how much water a person should consume in a day. As long as you’re keeping hydrated, do what suits you.
Drinking enough water daily has many benefits to staying healthy. Since our brains are mostly made up of water, if you are drinking enough, it will keep you more energized and focused. Water aids in digestion as it is essential to digest you’re food. It can boost your immune system so you don’t get sick as often. Water is a natural headache remedy. It can relieve and prevent headaches which are commonly caused by dehydration.
When your body is functioning at its best, you feel great and happy. Keep hydrated, stay active, and eat healthily to keep yourself feeling great and happy!
