Drink More


Spending the summer in the Florida heat has found me drinking more water than ever before. I know it's a good thing, but sometimes I find it so hard to remember to drink. The other day, I stumbled upon this water info on a friend's facebook page and thought it was great motivation to keep hydrated throughout the day.

I'm always in awe of people who drink a ton of water- I mean, it's such a commitment to carry around some sort of water bottle and sip sip sip all day, no?

I used to drink maybe a liter and a half per day when I was living in Germany. Now, a typical day for me in Florida is two and a half liters. 

I really do feel that water affects me both mentally and physically. If I don't get my normal intake, I find I'm irritable, tired, and often tend to eat more. When I do get my normal amount, or if I drink more than usual, I have a sense of mental clarity and feel I have a lot of energy.

Aside from plain water, I usually drink two cups of Kava tea. (I highly recommend it for relaxation and the craziest, most vivid dreams ever. Plus each little packet comes with an inspirational saying, so, there's that.)

Anyway. I'm interested. How much water do you drink per day? Do you notice a difference when you don't get as much water as usual?
