Let’s talk about WATER INTAKE✨// how much water do you drink every single day?
I feel like this is a topic often up for discussion…
Is water great for weight loss? Does it help clear your skin? Can it REALLY help with digestive issues and ‘going to the toilet…?’ 😳
What I do know from my own studies for sure, is that water is the foundation of life🙌 It is 100% essential to our own health, as well as the health of the planet, which is over 70% water! Its cleansing and hydrating properties assist in everything from helping plants grow to supporting digestion in our human bodies.
But on the other hand… Too much water can result in mineral imbalances, and too little water can cause dehydration, headaches or fatigue😴
So how much water should we really be drinking each day? 💭💭
I can tell you now… Every single person on this plant is totally different! Every single person requires a different amount of water in their bodies each day to thrive and feel their best. Whether or not we’re talking about food, emotions, thoughts, relationships, environment or water.. Everyone is ‘bio-individual.’ 💫
But did you know on average, men should drink about 3.7 litres & women about 2.7 litres? … You’re probably thinking that number is pretty high! But this number actually includes water we get from our food, which actually accounts for about 20% of our daily intake😍
It can be tricky to work out exactly how much you need.
But first thing is first: keep in mind lifestyle factors like diet, age, climate & state of health. This will affect hydration needs as well! For example.. a diet high in fresh fruits, vegetables and leafy greens would be more hydrating than a diet based on processed, packaged foods📦
To keep it simple, try and include as many plant based foods into your day as you can. This will make increasing your water intake on a daily basis, a lot more achievable!
Secondly, keep track of how much water you’re drinking throughout the day. Do you feel lethargic? Do you feel energised?
Work out what FEELS good for you. Then go from there…
