Drink More Water

Dehydration causes shrivelled and dry skin, low blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, fever, delirium and unconsciousness. If you regularly drink very little water you are at risk of serious kidney problems and you are harming your digestive system and heart. When your fluid levels are low the volume of blood in your veins goes down and you have less available to send to your vital organs. The signs and symptoms of dehydration range from minor to severe: increased thirst, dry mouth and swollen tongue, constipation, weakness, dizziness, palpitation feeling that the heart is jumping or pounding, confusion, sluggishness, fainting, inability to sweat, decreased urine output.
Urine colour may indicate dehydration. If urine is concentrated and deeply yellow or amber, you may be dehydrated. When the body is dehydrated, the blood becomes thicker causing resistance to blood flow, resulting in elevated blood pressure. Dehydration can also lead to a rise in blood cholesterol. This is the body's response to prevent water loss from the cells. High cholesterol and high blood pressure can further increase the risk of coronary heart disease. Dehydration can also lead to an increased risk of obesity, affiliated with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and cancer, among many others. However, this can be prevented by drinking two 8-ounce glasses of water before breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Regularly drinking water speeds up our metabolism and makes us feel more ''full'' while promoting good physical, mental, and emotional health.
