Do you drink enough water?
The human body is made up of 60-70% water, so no surprise that water’s so important!
After oxygen, water is the most fundamental element for life. Not only is it crucial for maintaining the balance of cells and circulation, water is necessary for all vital processes of our body.
On a normal day in a temperate climate, adults should drink around 1.5 litres of water. Of course, this can be consumed in different forms, from tea to coffee to soups. Though you should be aware that high-calorie drinks like fizzy drinks or fruit juices are not considered sources of hydration.
This recommended daily intake depends, of course, on how much water your body loses during the day, especially in summer or during exertion, at which point you need to compensate the loss. And don’t forget that water is a precious element, don’t waste it!
