7 Hydration Mistakes You’re Probably Making

Our bodies are made up of up to 60% water, and drinking enough throughout the day is essential for having glowing skin, maintaining a healthy weight, and flushing toxins out of the body. It even affects our mood and our ability to learn. But getting enough fluids is much more than simply drinking 8 glasses of water a day.

We at HEALTHY  believe keeping track of your water intake isn’t easy, but it also doesn’t have to be complicated. So we came up with a list of mistakes that might be keeping you from staying properly hydrated

1. You’re drinking water after your workouts.

While it’s true that drinking water after going to the gym helps with hydration, it’s also important to drink enough before and during exercise. If you start your workout almost dehydrated, you will lose even more fluid while you’re training, and it may be dangerous for your mental and physical health. But you don’t have to stick to just water to restore your fluid balance. Coconut drinks, black and green tea, and even chocolate milk will hydrate you just as well as water.
