THG Tip Tuesday
Happy Tuesday! Today’s tip from Tradition Home Group is to stay hydrated. Adult humans are 60 percent water, and our blood is 90 percent water. Contrary to popular belief there is no universally agreed quantity of water that must be consumed daily. Water is essential for the kidneys and other bodily functions. When dehydrated, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling. Drinking water instead of soda can also help with weight loss.
Drinking water is beneficial for so many different reasons. It lubricates the joints. It delivers oxygen throughout our bodies. It boosts skin, health and beauty. It cushions the brain, spinal cord and other sensitive tissues (Prolonged dehydration can lead to problems with thinking and reasoning.) Water regulates body temperature. And the digestive system depends on it, it also flushes body waste. It helps maintain blood pressure. It makes minerals and nutrients accessible. It prevents kidney damage. And so much more.
Drinking water is so important that there is an initiative that was started called Drink Water. Drink Water started with snow boarders (Austin & Bryan) writing Drink Water on their snowboards and screen-printing sweatshirts in a garage in 2011. As they gave the sweatshirts away to their friends, they learned a lot of other people shared the same thoughts and Drink Water grew into an initiative, a brand, a movement, and something way bigger than them.
THG hopes you follow our tip of the day. Water is vital for your health and your happiness. Kansas City is known as ‘The City of Fountains’, so we have a natural local love of all things water.
