This month I was working in the Tanami Desert in the NT, It’s already in the mid to high 30’s and they stress how important it is to stay hydrated.
But it got me thinking about those of us who live in the southern states where it is a bit cooler. I did a bit of a Google search and came up with this!
The Institute of Medicine sets general guidelines for total water intake. It recommends that women consume a total of 91 ounces (that’s about 2.7 liters) per day – from all food and beverages combined. For men, it’s about 125 ounces a day (or 3.7 liters).Nov 14, 2011
Did you read that? 2.7 litres for women and 3.7 litres for men!…… I seriously doubt that I have ever drank 3.7 litres of water in one day!
When I was reading the website it explained how water hydrates, flushes, cleans our bodies and it was quite interesting reading. I’m going to make a conscious effort to drink more water….. I’m sure my body will thank me.
Stay hydrated as it gets warmer, drink water.
