A Glass of hydration

How relevant is water in our daily lives?Apics (3)

Have you imagined why water is vital in our daily lives? Can you imagine life without water? There would be no life because every living thing (Human Beings, Plants, Animals, and soils) depend on water to be healthy, productive and fertile.

Not many people would argue that water is one of, if not the number one life saver for victims of  extreme conditions like natural catastrophes, accidents, extreme heat temperatures and wars (Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Shipwrecks). In such conditions, access to food gets complicated therefore water would be the best alternative for survival (drinking and the purposes of cooling  the body) .It’s estimated that you can not survive without water for much more than 3 days. In comparison, the average person can go up to 3 weeks without solid food but only drinking water.

The body consumption of fluids (Drinks like tea, coffee and juice ,Fruits like tomatoes, melons, oranges) help in quench thirst, regulate the body’s temperature, keeping the tissues in the body moist, keeping the body hydrated and healthy digestion.

One would wonder why Sodas and other related drinks like beers and energy drinks are excluded from  the “hydration dosages”. Some people even admit to drinking more soda than water each day, or no water ignoring the fact that sodas contribute to obesity. With research, consuming sugary drinks increases the risk of obesity or weight gain in children and adults, because of the sugar and high-fructose corn syrup in soda.

For the purpose of Hydration, here are some tips that can help:

  • If you have trouble remembering to drink water, drink on a schedule. For example, drink water when you wake up, at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and when you go to bed.
  • Drink water because it’s free.
  • Drink water before, during, and after a workout or exercises.
  • At least keep a bottle of water with you during the day. To reduce your costs, carry a reusable water bottle and fill it with tap water.
  • When you’re feeling hungry, drink water. Thirst can be confused with hunger. True hunger will not be satisfied by drinking water. Drinking water may also contribute to a healthy weight-loss plan.
  • If you don’t like the taste of plain water, try adding a slice of lemon or lime to your drink it will add a preferable taste.

Water is an essential element for life. Right throughout human history water has been looked on as a gift to humankind. Human beings, animals and plants live alongside water and are nourished by water. It is a source of beauty, wonder and relaxation and refreshment. Our very contact with nature has a deep restorative power. It is no accident that people chose places associated with water for the holidays, in order to renew and regenerate themselves henceforth a vital element in our lives.
