A good habit to get into now as a college student is to bring water with you everywhere you go. Unless you’re attending a function that will have water on hand, bringing your own will naturally prompt you to drink more often. Staying hydrated is just as important as diet and nutrition. Water both cleanses the body and transports vitamins and nutrients to give you energy. It’s also important for your mental and physical health, particularly your muscles, skin, and joints.
If you’re not adequately hydrated, your body will not be able to perform at its optimal level. You may feel hungry, fatigued, or dizzy, or experience muscle cramps, dry skin, and other symptoms. Staying hydrated is especially important after exercise and nourishing your body for a good night’s sleep.
