The importance of staying hydrated

Our body, if it does not get enough water will not function properly and if left untreated it can be dangerous. Slight dehydration may lead to headaches, dizziness, lack of sleep, poor memory or lack of concentration, dry mouth which can lead to dental issues or even premature ageing of the skin, just to name a few.

More severe problems if dehydration persists can be kidney and organ failure, heart issues, seizures, and lack of consciousness.

To avoid dehydration try and get into the habit of drinking water regularly - aim for 6-8 glasses a day.  Eat foods such as fruits and vegetables that are also high in water content, and do not wait until you are thirsty to drink, by this stage you are already starting to get a little dehydrated.
