I need to drink more water!
Wednesday, May 22, 2019
I think that I'm chronically dehydrated. Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night with my heart pounding (that's one symptom of dehydration) and it's really unsettling. Mostly, I am drinking coffee, tea, and some water throughout the day. Plus on weekends I'll have alcohol. I know I need to challenge myself on drinking more water, and some people drink a whole gallon per day. Maybe I need to try this out?
Here is how it breaks down: "Eight ounces is a cup. Sixteen ounces is a pint. Two pints makes a quart which is your 32 ounces. There are four quarts to a gallon (128 ounces) so there are four (4) thirty two (32) ounce quarts in a gallon." Plus, I also read that roughly 2 liters is a half gallon, so that means if you drink a gallon of water per day, it's equal to 4 liters? (I looked it up- it's 3.77 liters to a gallon)
I am inspired to try going for drinking at least 3 quarts of water a day, consistently, and really push for a gallon/day.
Has anyone else experimented with this, and did you see good results?
I read an article this morning that prompted my Blog entry:
