Make sure you get enough sleep. 

A lack of sleep can cause dehydration and research by scientists* has revealed that sleeping less than 6 hours is associated with inadequate hydration.  Nick’s top tip: “If you’re struggling to sleep, try increasing your water intake throughout the day and make sure your urine is a pale yellow color rather than a dark yellow.” 

Nick also comments on the key benefits of drinking water:

  • “Around 60% of our body is made up from water and our blood is 90% water but despite this, drinking water isn’t at the top of many peoples list of priorities. There are so many benefits of drinking water and being hydrated. Not only will you sleep better, you will also be able to think clearer and it regulates your body temperature. 
  • “Your body gives you many warning signs that you are dehydrated, besides the obvious feeling thirsty. Dark urine, feeling tired more than usual and finding it difficult to concentrate on everyday tasks are all signs that you aren’t drinking enough water.
  • “A simple and quick tip is to have a bottle of water filled up and with you all day, whether that be in your home office, out for a walk, or next to you in bed. Drinking to thirst throughout the day is ideal.”
