Water, water everywhere

Make sure you get a drop to drink.  It’s hot out there in Portland and the surrounding area right now.  Make sure you stay hydrated.

Water is one of the most important building blocks of life.  The human body is essentially a mobile bag of salt water.  If you don’t have enough water in you, the basic processes of life are limited and you just won’t function as well.  Plus, chronic dehydration can set up the situation for your body to create fascial adhesions easier.  These adhesions can be thought of simply as dehydrated laters of fascia that end up sticking together and then limiting motion.

So….get those glasses of water in.  A helpful tip to drink more water can be to add some flavoring.  Add a nice lemon wedge or something similar.  Just that little bit of flavor encourages us to drink more just “plain, boring” water does.
