Did you know that when you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated? Your body has set off a trigger that it has gotten below the levels of hydration in needs to perform optimally.
Some dehydration symptoms include:
- Dark colored urine
- Dry mouth
Drinking water all day is also a great way to keep the "brain fog" away and stay energized. Sure, it doesn't have caffeine like your cup of coffee, but it keeps your cells happy. If you don't want to give up your caffeinated beverage (I don't blame you), make it a habit to drink 8 ounces of water for every cup of coffee you reach for. It's an easy way to hold yourself accountable for hydration while still getting your caffeine fix.
