Hydration is Key
Hydration is key to optimal health and performance!
While we are all staying at home we are more likely to drink LESS water due to the change in our daily schedule and responsibilities. Most of you are likely choosing to survive off 5 cups of coffee, a couple cups of juice or maybe even soda and call it a day.
Some of you may use water to mix into your NUTRITECH products, but the reality is that when we don’t go anywhere for work and no longer take a water bottle into the gym, we don’t consume as much water. The problem with being dehydrated may not be obvious to you which is why I chose to write on this topic specifically.
You don’t have to be outside, you aren’t training for any specific endurance or “hard” training event, and you don’t live in a climate where burning in the sun, so what’s the big deal right? Incorrect, there are several issues and some are bigger than one can imagine.
During the lock-down situation our mental and physical health must be a priority in order to keep our immune system strong and help us stay sane! When you enter even into mild states of dehydration you create issues that aren’t only physical but also mental.
When we don’t consume enough water we become irritable more quickly, we can experience headaches (especially with increased screen time due to work or entertainment while being stuck at home).
With mental health being on the top of everyone’s concern as we are separated from loved ones, friends and fun activities it is important to minimise mental or emotional struggle. We can combat this with simply drinking more water.
