Health Tip of the Day - Water

Your body is made up of approximately 70% water. When the body does not move, the water in them becomes stagnant, creating a breeding ground for disease. As you move your body with exercise, you stir the water, refreshing your body, renewing your energy and regaining strength.

Dehydration may show up as a headache, tiredness, lightheadedness, nausea or anxiety. If you experience any of these symptoms, drink 1 to 2 glasses of pure water and notice if you feel better. Avoid caffeinated beverages such as black tea, coffee and soft drinks as well as alcohol-they can actually rob your body of water. To jazz up a plain glass of water, add a twist of lemon or lime or even a splash of fruit juice.
