Have you ever experienced that feeling where you try to swallow but it feels like you every bit of saliva has escaped your mouth? That you’re housing a couple dozen cotten balls that are making talking, breathing, and eating nearly impossible? This is a clear sign that you are already dehydrated.
As a Portland Personal Trainer, we make sure that our clients are getting suffiecient water throughout their workout. If the clients are not sweating, this is also a tell tale sign that they are not drinking enough water.
When our body is telling us that it is thirsty, we have already let dehydration set in. Being consistent with our water intake is key to ensure that we do not fall victim to this. Hydrating ourselves allows our body to continue its functions as well as keeps us having a clear mind without feeling dizzy or light headed.
Here our some tips to help you keep water consumption a priority:
1. Have a water bottle with you at all times.
2. Give yourself the goal of filling up your water bottle twice before lunch, and then twice before you leave for the day.
3. Encourage others to drink more water as well. Personal Trainers will tell you that buidling a support system will help keep you accountable,
