Hungry? Tired? Hazy?
It might be due to the amount (or lack of) water you’ve consumed today.
Why? Your brain is strongly influenced by hydration status. And studies show that even mild dehydration (1-3% of body weight) can impair energy levels and mood, and lead to major reductions in memory and brain performance.
Not to mention it can increase satiety and boost your metabolic rate, thus helping control your cravings and keeping your body at a healthy weight. In fact, drinking just 2 liters of water every day can increase your total energy expenditure by up to 96 calories per day!
All of this said, we understand it isn’t always easy to fit glasses of water into your daily routine. Especially if you are a commuter, or just always on the run. We suggest that you start by forming a routine that’s easy to stick to. For example, invest in a 1L water bottle and commit to filling it every morning before you leave for work. Try to finish it by lunch, and then refill. Wa-la! 2L in one day. Not so hard, right?
Whatever way you do it, we suggest working water into your daily life. You will thank us later!

Once an earworm makes it’s way into your psyche, how do you get rid of it?
