People often walk around in a state of dehydration without even realizing it. About 75% of Americans are estimated to be in a chronic state of dehydration.
The first sign of dehydration is often a feeling of extreme thirst, as our body is excellent at telling us what it needs. But sometimes, that signal gets ignored. And for many, when asked whether they drink enough water, their response is often, "Ugh! Water? Blech!"
Headaches, dizziness, fatigue, chapped lips, itchy skin, dark colored urine, strong smelling urine, muscle spasms, and confusion can also be signs of dehydration. And yet, we seldom consider drinking a glass of water to ease our symptoms.
But here's the thing... water doesn't have to be boring, and drinking it shouldn't feel like a chore.
