Yes, water is important. During my first pregnancy I had dreadful cramps in my legs. Some helpful person told me that could be due to dehydration so I made sure I drank lots of water in later pregnancies.
Well..in my case I go straight to plain filterd water whenever I m thirsty. To keep dehydration out of my way, I always prefer at least 2 litres of water. But occassionally I also prefer juices, tea or cofee.
Thanks Puspanjalee. I heard recently that there is a move to stop selling bottled water in some shops and in some communities because people are concerned about the amount of plastic used to bottle it. I understand the argument for reducing plastic waste, but I do not like the idea of everyone being forced to buy a sugary drink on a hot day instead of having the choice to buy cold water.
Yes it is. Aside from coffee and milk, plain water is the only drink I have throughout the day. When I wake up, I drink 1/2 liter to rehydrate myself after the long sleeping hours without drinking anything, and I keep on drinking water throughout the day. Even when I am exercising I hydrate myself with water (no Gatorade nor nothing of the sort). With lunch or dinner I usually don't drink anything, but if I do, it is almost always water because I don't like sugary drinks nor sodas, and definitely not alcohol. I do know people who never drink plain water and I find it horrific! Thanks God I am not like that.
Hi Claudia. We are in a heat wave at the moment yet I have encountered a lot of people who say they don't drink water. I was wondering if my family was somehow out of step with the rest of the world because we always choose water first.
Hi Georgie. I had to google Mio because I've never heard of it. The ingredients list is kind of scarey. Do you use it in all your water? I wonder what your well water would taste like if you filtered it. I don't think mio is sold here in oz ... yet.
Yes, it's my go-to drink at home and even at work where everyone else is drinking coffee. I drink at least 2 litres a day. The first cup of the day usually has some fresh squeezed lemon juice in it to alkalize my body and help support my liver.
I will follow your lead visionandfocus and add freshly squeezed lemon juice to my morning water, at least while there are lemons on my tree. Despite being acidic in its natural form, it turns alkaline as its metabolized by the body. Great idea.
i have a water bottle of 720ml with me all the time. I drink plain water when i am thristy, better and cheap. I don't measure the glass; 8 glass of water per day coz i am lazy to walk to the kitchen just to get the drink.
I am hearing you peachpurple. I carry a bottle with me as well. It is a long walk to the kitchen from the far end of my yard, but sometimes the walk seems even more daunting from the couch to the kitchen at the end of a long day.
Yes! I am never without it. I carry a bottle in my purse as well as several in my car. I always have a glass by my bedside at night too. I drink nearly 2 litres per day. It can be from the tap, bottled, or filtered, but I prefer room temperature.
