Unlocking Vitality: The Impact of Hydration on Energy Levels

In our ever busy, GO-GO-GO productivity focused culture that rewards being busy with a badge of honour it can be downright exhausting. For decades I turned to coffee and sugar to get me through. After recently giving up caffeine, I started to notice how sugar gave me the same high I needed to keep going- this is not the better choice!! So now I watch when I crave sugar and why I crave sugar- and typically the answer is for energy. 




But sugar and caffeine both pull water away from your cells and cause you to urinate more. If you’re not rehydrating by drinking water,  your body moves into a dehydrated state causing you to feel even more tired after the initial high wears off.


Dehydration can:


  • make you feel sluggish, tired and moody

  • affect your ability to recall information

  • decrease muscle movement

  • result in foggy thoughts and

  • impair decision making


I knew there must be a better way to increase my energy rather than falling victim to the highs and crashes that caffeine and sugar cause. 


What healthy habit could I use to replace this unhealthy habit and give myself a boost of energy? 


You may have guessed it… WATER!  Choosing to drink water to prevent symptoms of fatigue and tiredness that come with dehydration can give you the energy you need to excel in your day. 


Adding a little pinch of himalayan or celtic salt under your tongue when you drink purified water will allow the water to absorb into your cells faster and efficiently- giving you a healthy boost when you need it.


The next time you’re tempted to reach for an afternoon coffee, try a nice refreshing glass of pure, clean water. Or replace your morning coffee with a caffeine free herbal tea- I love peppermint tea in the morning as it's refreshing and uplifting. 




Feeling the benefits of new healthy habits can take time.  But if you’re committed to feeling better and ditching some unhealthy habits you can do it! Your future self will thank you for it.
