You knew this chat was coming! Today, we’re going to talk about water consumption.
This idea of between five and eight glasses a day is difficult – what size glasses and how are you supposed to know? I think that optimal water consumption is really down to how much you’re moving throughout the day and how active you are.
So what are the signs of dehydration? How do we know that we’re dehydrated and that we need to consume more? Well, urine colour is the obvious choice, and if we find we are not going to the bathroom frequently throughout the day or if we find that it is darker than straw colour (a pale yellow), then we probably need to consume more water throughout the day.
The other thing is if you’re waking up with a headache in the morning, that can be a sign of dehydration.
