GIVE YOUR BODY THE WATER IT NEEDS
Did you know?
We can survive many days or evan weeks without food, but only a few days without water.
60 to 75% of total body weight is water. The lungs are 90% water. The brain is 76% water. Evan bones are 25% water.
Water has many functions in the body. It delivers nutrients to tissues and carries waste products away. Water also serves as a cushion and lubricant for our spine and other joints.
Insufficant water intake results in suboptimal intracellular water volume and reduces cell function. This deminishes the body's ability to heal and maintain optimal health.
The body needs 8 to 9 cups of water per. day.
A LITTLE STRETCHING GOES A LONG WAY
Stretching before and after any activity reduces the risk of injury.
A strong, flexible, pre-stretched muscle resists stress better than a strong stiff un-stretched muscle.
TAKE A WALK
Regular walks relieve feelings of anxiety and depression. They also help boost your energy level and enhance you self - image.
CONTROL YOUR STRESS LEVEL
Short term stress can keep you awake at night and make you irritable. High stress levels over a long period of time can cause serious health problems such as high blood preasure, and it can weaken your immune system and make it difficult for your body to fight disease. Stress is linked to health conditions such as heart disease, asthma, and depression.
KEEP A FOOD JORNAL
A good tool for weight loss. Keeping a food journal lets us really see what we are puting in our mouths. Most eating is unconcious, habitual. Give it a try and you will be surprised.
