If you are feeling fatigued, irritable or unfocused, your could be under-hydrating. Surprisingly, sleep is high on the list of dehydrating activities. We recommend drinking at least eight ounces of water every hour or two before you fall asleep.
Here are a couple ways to help you rehydrate ASAP:
- Add a pinch of sea salt and a squeeze of lemon juice to your next glass of water. Both ingredients are full of electrolytes and minerals that speed hydration.
- Sip your elevated water, wait 10-15 minutes, then get your body moving. Walk a flight of stairs or lap around the office. Your tissues absorb more fluids while they're working than they do when you're sitting still.
