Day 1 – Drink Your Water
Water is the most important nutrient. After air, water is the most important factor to human life. Accounting for about 60% of your body weight, we can survive for weeks without food, but only days without water. We need approximately 30 ml of water per kg of body weight per day (approximately 2.3 liters of water for 170 lb person). Every organ and cell needs to stay hydrated in order for the body to function at its best. Staying hydrated is important for both physical and mental health. So, from today on, make hydration your daily goal. I admit that, although I’m really great at drinking water throughout the day when I’m at work, on my days off, I don’t drink nearly enough water. I sip here and there but I doubt I drink even a third of my daily recommendation. Making hydrating while home/on the weekends is going to be a priority for me.
