This week is Drinking Water Week. For over 30 years, the American Water Works Association and its members have celebrated the vital role water plays in our daily lives.
Drinking the right amount of water can also help you sleep better.
Believe it or not, insomnia can sometimes occur due to dehydration. Though it’s not something we normally associate with not sleeping, bringing yourself out of the dehydrated state might just cure your bedtime woes.
So, how much should we drink daily? Since we’re over 90% water, any lack of it can cause some serious problems. According to Lack of Sleep: Causes and Remedies, you need to drink half of your body weight in ounces of water. For example, a 200 pound man needs to drink 100 ounces of water each day.
So, drink up! Properly hydrating yourself can be beneficial when you’re awake and asleep.
