Updating the old standard of 8 glasses of water per day, health experts now advise this formula:
Take your body weight in pounds and divide that number in half to get the number of ounces recommended to drink each day. For example, a 150 pound person would aim to drink 75 ounces each day.
For most of us, this is much more than our regular fluid intake, especially in cold weather where our thirst isn’t as obvious. Pay attention to how much you drink and increase your water intake over the course of a few days or weeks. Soon you’ll notice how the aches and pains subside and you have a little more fluid energy in your day.
Pro tip: set a full water bottle by your bed at night, ready to drink first thing in the morning.
