Water and your mood

Self-Care Hub , Good Food for Good Mood

Water is a fundamental substance which every human need. A number of us might hear that drinking eight glasses of water a day is good for physical health. Indeed, it benefits more than our physical health. It also benefits our mood. Up to 60% of the human adult body is water.

Yet, the brain is composed of around 75% water. We need water to keep our brain function and maintain our emotional stability. Dehydration might cause discomfort and affect brain functioning such as dizziness and slacken task performance. Although drinking sugary drinks, coffee or tea is a way to refill body fluid, excessive intake of these drinks may not always lift our mood and there might be some side effects too.

Let’s drink more water to experience the benefits.
