I am going to continue to cover the most foundational topics of health before we dive into some of the more specific tips & tricks to improve your health. This weeks is water & hydration! Water is one of the few variables that makes the world go round. Without it, nothing could live. Our beloved planet Earth would be a desert wasteland and not a single bit of life would be found. As humans, we need a good amount on a daily basis to optimally function. You could almost call water an additional macronutrient because of how large of a roll hydration plays in our lives. I'm afraid labeling it as a macronutrient would be underselling it though! Read on to learn more about why we should keep your water bottle close by day in and day out to live the healthiest life possible.

Tips to stay hydrated
I don’t believe much has to be said! The long list of benefits and symptoms of dehydration speak for themselves. There are several ailments, vitamins, supplements, medical procedures, and exercises in the world that improve your health, but water is by far the most beneficial and cost effective of them all. So pick up your water bottle and chug, chug, chug! (haha) Kidding…you actually can over do it, but unless you plan on chugging a gallon in an hour or 3+ gallons over 24hrs then you have nothing to worry about 😉 Stay healthy and live large my friends!
