People often walk around in a state of dehydration without ever realizing it. Headaches, dizziness, fatigue, chapped lips, itchy skin, dark colored urine, muscle spasms, and confusion can all be signs of dehydration, and yet we rarely, if ever think of drinking a glass of water to ease our symptoms.
Often, the first sign of dehydration is a feeling of extreme thirst, as our body is excellent at telling us what it needs. But sometimes that signal gets ignored. And for a lot of folks, when asked whether they drink enough water, their response is often; "Ugh! Water? Blech!"
Water doesn't have to be boring, and it shouldn't feel like a chore to drink it.
