The best way to quench your thirst on a hot day is an ice cold glass of water. But, is one glass enough to keep you hydrated for the day? The simple answer is no. You need a minimum of nine cups (72 oz) a day to stay moderately hydrated. Another way to estimate your required water intake is to take your weight, divide by two, and that is how many ounces of water you need to drink a day.
Staying hydrated will help you stay active, awake, and alert. It can also help promote healthier skin, better health, more efficient blood flow and overall positive body functioning. 85% of the brain is made up of water, so taking sips throughout the day can lead to more brain flow, which eventually could lead to efficiency at work.
If you are concerned about our environment, consider 60 million plastic water bottles in the US are thrown into landfills every day. These bottles don’t easily degrade, and will be in our landfills for generations. Make a small change and help save the earth by forgetting about disposable plastic water bottles, and switching to a simple re-useable bottle. It’s convenient to carry a water bottle or travel mug, so why not get you or your company personalized or branded ones? You will feel better and so will Mother Earth!
