Executive Vitality™: Raise a Glass to the New Year

A glass of water that is!

Drink more water in 2019. The human body is about 60% water. Note that this is the majority of the body. That means that all cellular activity—including what goes on in the brain cells—depends on water. Research shows that even slight dehydration is detrimental to brain function.

Five reasons lifting your glass of water can increase your productivity:

  1. You will feel better
  2. You will have more energy
  3. You will think better (enhanced cognition)
  4. You will have better memory function
  5. Your focus and attention will improve

Health benefits of drinking water:

  1. Relieves fatigue
  2. Improves mood
  3. Helps prevent headaches including migraines
  4. Helps in digestion
  5. Aids weight loss
  6. Prevents constipation
  7. Normalizes blood pressure
  8. Cushions joints
  9. Regulates body temperature
  10. Maintaining electrolyte (sodium) balance
