Stress Less Tip
Dehydration causes stress in more than one way. You need water to manufacture hormones that regulate your sleep, aid in digestion, prevent skin breakdown, heal wounds, and even produce energy from the nutrients you consume.
In addition to placing stress on the biological processes your body relies on to function properly, dehydration negatively affects your mood and brain power. You may feel groggy, more easily frustrated, unable to concentrate, forgetful, and anxious as a result.
Fortunately, all of these side effects disappear by drinking water. So next time you start to feel stressed out, take a break to drink a glass of water. It's entirely possible that a low hydration level triggered the feeling.
Do you know how much water you currently drink each day? Instead of guessing, track your intake. A couple of days of proper hydration will skyrocket your energy level. For digital tracking options, try an app on your Apple or Android device.
