Here we are moving right along with another very basic and very important contribution to brain health and happiness – H2O! Water is incredibly important in our system, it is an excellent conductor of electrical energy. Water facilitates an effective conductivity of electrical currents between our brain and our sensory organs. So in order to make ‘sense’ out of world, we need to have enough water in our system.
Our bodies are made up of about 70% (the numbers vary) and not replenishing water during the day can cause the strangest health and well-being problems (ranging from headaches, to nausea, to over-eating, to poor concentration and much more).
As with most basic things we can do for ourselves, it’s easily done, also easily not done………… You will almost always see me with a water-bottle. It’s a good way to keep drinking water during the day and a good way to keep track of how much I’ve had. I aim to drink at least 64 oz. per day.
