WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO STAY HYDRATED?

Cara Deiro

Improving Physical Performance

When you exercise, you need to stay hydrated because your body will use a lot of water. Staying hydrated during and after exercise will improve your overall physical performance. You will also be protecting your body from harm. When you are hydrated, you will reduce the fatigue that you feel after exercise. Your endurance will also be improved. Your maximum heart rate will also lower and you will not feel as sore after exercising.

Boosting Your Mood

It is not only your body that benefits from hydration as it will help your mentality as well. It has been found that people who drink more water will generally have better moods. There is one study that looked at people who usually drank 1.2 litres of water or less per day and increased this to 2.5 litres.

These people were found to experience less fatigue, sleepiness and confusion. The same study restricted people who usually drink 2 to 4 litres per day to one litre. These people felt a negative effect on their mood, had an increase in discontent, positive emotions and calmness.

Preventing Headaches

There are a number of symptoms of dehydration with headaches being one of them. In fact, water deprivation is one of the most common causes of headaches. In most cases, drinking more water will be able to alleviate a headache. However, it is important to note that dehydration can also lead to migraines. If you do not have a regular intake of water, you might be more prone to headaches and migraines. Staying hydrated could reduce the occurrence of headaches and migraines.

Boosting Your Brainpower

While a boost to your mood will generally help in many aspects of your life, hydration can also boost your brainpower. The more water you drink, the better your cognitive performance is likely to be. There are many studies which have been done that support this. These studies have found that people who drink water during cognitive tests will perform better than those that do not. These results have been found to be true for both adults and children. Other studies have suggested that even minor dehydration will cause cognitive function impairment in the short-term.

Protect Against Disease

One of the most important reasons why you should stay hydrated is a simple fact that it helps to prevent disease. There are a number of health conditions which can be prevented by staying hydrated. It is important that you know what they are and how hydration can help.

Some of these diseases will include kidney stones, constipation, urinary tract infections and coronary heart disease. It is also believed that staying hydrated can help with asthma. It is important to note that staying hydrated will not prevent these diseases completely, but will be helpful.
