Drink Your Water Week!
Getting enough water every day is important for your health. Healthy people meet their fluid needs by drinking when thirsty and drinking with meals. The human body is made up of over seventy percent water. Understandably, drinking plenty of fluids to maintain and replenish water levels is vital for things like muscle function, joint and brain protection, immune health, digestion, and even mood. Everyone knows that water is an essential component of life and has many health benefits, yet the majority of Americans don’t drink enough water on a daily basis. Although the Mayo Clinic suggests drinking anywhere between 72 to 104 ounces of water daily (or more if you exercise), the average American only drinks 32 ounces of water each day.
If drinking water is a challenge for you, or if you are interested in improving your water intake, your Whole Health Committee invites you to participate in PSESD’s 2017 “Drink Your Water” Week (September 17th – Sept 21st). It’s easy as 1-2-3:
- Track your water on the Water Intake Log
- Turn in your completed Water Intake Log to HR & OD or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 21st at 5:00 p.m.
Participants who submit a completed Water Intake Log will be entered in a drawing for one of 5 beautiful Liberty BottleWorks water bottles! We hope you will join us for our 2018 “Drink Your Water” Week.
