Kick-Start the New Year 2
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean we can’t get dehydrated. Activities like skiing and shoveling burn tons of calories, and can cause us to perspire. Even if you’re inside all day talking, you lose the water vapor from your speech and can get dehydrated. Caffeine makes this worse, of course, so if you have a job where you are inside talking all day and you drink tea or coffee, you’re bound to be more at risk for fatigue, poor concentration, dry skin, and dry hair. Remember that healthy people without kidney problems need to drink ½ their body weight in ounces of water daily, so that a 150lb person would consume 75oz of water, or about 9 cups.
