As we enter the summer months it can be easy to forget to drink enough water throughout the day. Although there are no standard guidelines recommended by the CDC, a general rule of thumb is to aim between 6-8 glasses of water a day. This can vary though based on your body weight and activity level.
Water is important for all of your cells and organs, vital for many different functions. Among other things water helps maintain blood pressure, aids the digestive system, and cushions areas of the body such as the joints, spinal cord, and brain.
If you struggle to drink enough water try adding natural flavors such as slices of lemon, cucumber, fresh herbs such as mint, or berries (depending on what is on your plan).
