Take Back Control of Your Health: What are the easier wins with the most ROI?

“Treat your body with respect.” 1 Corinthians 3:16–17

Hydration is high on the list.  And I like this memorable image.

The obvious problems of dehydration are the distractions of feeling thirsty or dry mouth (and some people confuse thirst with hunger, which creates other problems).

But the positive is that you have little or no urge to pee, which leaves more for work, golf, etc.

Seriously though…the less obvious direct results of dehydration include dry, scratchy skin, headaches (including hangovers), light-headedness/dizziness, fast heart rate, the dreaded constipation, and my personal experience with orthostatic hypotension.

Water aids digestion and gets rid of waste. It acts as a lubricant for your joints. Your brain needs it to create hormones and neurotransmitters. And not surprising, it helps regulate your body temperature.

The Solution:  You’ve heard that our healthcare system is really a ‘sick care system’? That’s where the money is.  But that’s poor leadership and poor stewardship of God’s gifts to you.

The solution is too easy and literally costs about $0.01/person /day (unless you only drink bottled water).
