# Blog entry V : Christmas challenge

### Friday, November 30, 2007

As a part of one of my team's Christmas challenge, I am supposed to blog about one of these energy drainers and FIX the problem. This will be in sequence everyday so stay tuned for the next 9. I am not letting in on the all of them in the first entry itself.

You're Dehydrated
Dehydration causes your body to conserve energy by decreasing blood circulation. This deprives your muscles of oxygenated blood and causes you to become fatigued, Dr. Lipsky says. Even mild dehydration can make you feel lethargic. Symptoms include constipation; rough, dry skin; dry tongue, lips and mucous membranes; dark, strong-smelling urine; thirst; weakness; and fatigue. Be sure to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day. Your urine should be pale yellow, says Dr. Lipsky. If it's not, keep drinking until the color changes. Replace lost fluids during a workout by having 4 to 6 ounces of water every 15 to 20 minutes, advises Kristine Clark, PhD, RD, director of sports nutrition at Pennsylvania State University. Weigh yourself before and after you exercise, and drink 16 ounces (two cups) for every pound lost, she says.

I was not always a good water drinker. I didn't used to drink anything (no coke, pepsi, juice, tea, etc). I used to drink 4-6 glasses of water. Then when I was in my 3rd year of Pharmacy College, during my internship, one of the ladies I worked with mentioned the importance of water. Since then there was no looking back. I am usually FOUND with a bottle of water in my hand. I keep a bottle of water in my car always ! Even if I am leaving the house for 5 mins to run an errand, I take my bottle with me.

 NITAINMN 12/1/2007 7:17PM Madhu, This is interesting. I guess we all have to come to your blog next 9 days so the curiosity doesn't kill us. LOL Water is so important for our body. Human body is made up of 55% to 80% water, women less than men and fatter you are, less water in you. I am exactly like you - with a bottle of Dasani in my hand! So, you are a pharmacist? Now I know who I can go to for a free consult, hehehehe! Report Inappropriate Comment

You'll sleep best when your room is very dark, says Samir Bangalore, MD, a medicine intern at Evanston Hospital in Illinois. Make sure blinds and curtains block intense light like streetlamps. (Low-intensity illumination such as a night-light is not likely to keep you awake.) In a recent study from Northwestern University, Dr. Bangalore found that people who were awakened in the middle of the night by bright light (such as a bathroom light) and kept awake for several hours had a shift in circadian rhythm, in essence giving them jet lag. The longer the exposure, the more the body's natural clock was disturbed.

This is true. I had light colored curtains and these did not stop the light from my porch to show through the curtains. So when we re-decorated our bedroom in April, I selected dark colored opaque Egyptian blinds which block out the light completely and help me sleep better.
