The 5 Biggest Hydration Mistakes You're Making Right Now

August 13, 2015 2 min read

Water is the essence of us. With our bodies being comprised of over 60% of the stuff, we need it to make sure nutrients get transported, waste gets flushed and we stay toxin free. Drinking enough is one thing, but there are other big mistakes you could be making when it comes to staying hydrated that you may not even notice: #1 Making clear pee your goal. While dark yellow pee is a sign of dehydration, clear pee can mean you're actually overly hydrated. Aim for urine with a slight yellow tinge. #2 Believing that over-hydration isn't a thing. Chugging back way too much water (like gallons a day) can swell your cells and cause dizziness, puffiness and, in some cases, death. When you're working out, it's okay to just take a few sips instead of knocking back bottle after bottle. Like everything, water should also be consumed in reasonable moderation. #3 Combating workout cramps with water. Cramps are caused by tired out muscles, not dehydration. Getting minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium can improve muscle strength and endurance. So drink your water in moderation, and fill up on needed nutrients. #4 Thinking coffees and teas don't hydrate. Unlike alcohol which leaves you parched, your body does gain some fluid from caffeine drinks. Go ahead and count your morning cup of joe as a slightly hydrating beverage. #5 Striving for 8 cups of water a day. How much water you need pertains to your individual needs, your activity level and the weather. A golden rule of getting enough is to pay attention to your body and drink whenever you feel thirsty until you feel satisfied. It's as easy as that! Have you been making any of these mistakes? How much water do you drink in a day? Source: Prevention
