and today's Habit of Health focus is HYDRATION! 💦💦💦 How much water do you drink every day? When asked this question, many people say, "Not enough." But what is enough?
There are many recommendations from various sources, so you need to be sure and check with your health care provider for personal recommendations, especially if you are on any medications or have health issues that could affect the amount you should drink. 👩⚕️ However, for most healthy adults, 64 oz is the generally recognized recommended amount.
Another rule of thumb for healthy adults is to take how much you weigh and divide it in half to come up with a good target for how many ounces of water per day you should aim for. (i.e. If you weigh 200 pounds, drink 100 oz of water per day.) Again, be sure to check with your health provider for personal recommendations. 👨⚕️
