WINTER PSA - WATER
Updated: Jul 30, 2022
Well, winter has indeed struck. It's getting colder and the wind does have a fresh bite to it.
Now tell me have you recently experienced chapped lips / dry skin / feeling tired & irritable / loss of appetite... Potentially simply put it down to the change of weather... My next question is have you neglected your water intake? I know I am guilty of this as the weather gets cooler. Our bodies are made up of 50-70% water. They cannot function to their full capacity if dehydrated. We need water for 💧 digestion 💧 to absorb nutrients 💧 to help us move 💧 get rid of waste products and 💧 regulate our body temperature From a movement perspective, we need water to keep our bodies maneuverable. Muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia need to have moisture to have their full range potential. Think of your insides like a sponge. Moisture = Plyable Dehydration = Fragile
Here is my public service announcement to continue to drink water, ideally 30ml per Kg of bodyweight. Let me know your favorite way to get your liquids in through the winter. Until next week Cheers, Nikki
