1 Liter of Water Goes Bye-Bye While We Sleep

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

This weekend, I was mattress shopping. On the counter of the mattress store was a beaker that held a liter of water. WOW! They were reminding folks to stay healthily hydrated due to water loss during the night. I came home and looked at a liter again. That's a LOT of water, friends.

No wonder there's much advice to drink first thing upon awakening.

Have a happy day, sparkers.

    That's the truth, in winter we have condensation on our bedroom windows.

    glug, glug, glug!

raw fruits, veggies and greens are water rich. On top of that I drink at least 80 to 120 ozs of water a day. I get out of bed during the night about 5 times a night to get rid of the water. LOL

    We have one of those water machines in our home with the 5 gallon water bottles on top. We are always drinking water in my house and we all love it!

    It's also why we weigh less first thing in the morning.

    I never knew I was dehydrated in the morning until I started drinking 16 oz. of water when I first woke up. Now I can't start my day without it. For folks who don't like to drink water - force yourself for a couple of weeks. You'll be amazed!

Thanks for posting this reminder!!
