A few days ago, I had a funny conversation with a friend client as I was discussing how much water to drink per day ~
I love to keep it simple and suggest ( an average ) of 2-3 litres per day.
He said " CYDNEY !!, I'll be pissing EVERYWHERE!! "
I'm sorry, but I burst out laughing, and said, ok, so, first of all, how many times in a day do you think is normal to pee?? ( in a 24 hour period )
He said ... I don't know!
Funnily enough, I had researched it and the research said, 4-10 times per day. 4 being kind of dehydrated ( not enough water ) and 10 might be well hydrated.
ZO!! Let's work it out ~
Get up , #1 Pee
Off to work, #2 Pee
Mid AM , #3 Pee
Noon #4 Pee
Later in afternoon # 5 Pee
After Supper time-ish #6 Pee
Before Bed # 7 Pee
People!!, It's NORMAL ...
They do recommend that we start drinking our water early in the day ~
Yup, 4-6 TALL glasses approx and if you drink coffees or alcohol, they reduce the amount of hydration, so you will have to drink MORE, if you do indulge :)
They also recommend that 2 hours before bedtime ( if we try to go to bed at 11, please stop drinking at 9pm ) go to the washroom before you go to sleep, to try to reduce disturbing your sleep by getting up in the night.
I have always recommended to jot down on a post it note ( hey I am old fashioned, going into my 60th year!! )
However, for you lovely tech peeps, there are some fun Apps that you can get to calculate your liquid consumptions, like My Water.
I do truly believe that water is the essence of life and I would be delighted to go to my grave having inspired you to drink more water.
Much love to you all, much water drinking too!!
