  • Water 101: Steps to Maximizing Your Hydration!

    Water 101: Steps to Maximizing Your Hydration! Water. It is a beautiful and natural-occurring human power source. Our bodies need water to function and thrive. But how much exactly do we need? At one point in time it was recommended that we all need to drink 8 glasses a day to stay in peak physical condition. This was recently disputed as nothing more than a mere guideline, rather than based on scientific evidence. Now daily recommended water intake depends on size, weight, and activity level but in general should be between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day.

    “Look closely at the way we live, look at what the majority of people is driven by; and then ask yourself what is the main interest of this majority?
