How easily we get de-hydrated
Why you should stay hydrated. In the modern world it often feels like we are dictated to by a series of priorities. Check emails, charge the phone, get out of the house to keep ahead of the rush hour crush. And of course, get the first caffeine kick of the day as early as possible.
But in the rush to get things done and get on with our day, we can very quickly become de-hydrated. And it is said that even mild dehydration can have an adverse impact on both mood and energy levels.
“Mild dehydration is about a 1.5 percent loss of body weight,” says Harris Lieberman, Ph.D., a scientist with the U.S. Army.
If you went about your day, taking time for some light exercise, without drinking water, you are likely to suffer mild dehydration.
