Hydration Leads to Happiness

Staying hydrated can help improve your mood.

Drinking a tall glass of cold water will not hydrate your skin, but it may hydrate your mood.

Mild dehydration has been linked to fatigue, headaches, confusion, and moodiness. And in the summertime, you sweat a lot more, which increases your chance for dehydration.

Don’t worry. You don’t need to drink 8 glasses of water of day, but you do need to drink water after you’ve exercised, sweated a lot, or just feel thirsty. Opt for plain water with no sweeteners.

Drink. Smile. Feel better.
