100 Days to Health - Day 033 | The Endocrine System

Week 5 – Day 33 – Endocrine System

Tip for the Day

The Endocrine  (Hormonal) System, which influences every aspect of your health and well-being, is totally reliant on water. Sometimes when we think we are tired, and usually crave a ‘pick-me-up’ like coffee or tea, our bodies are indeed just thirsty for water. Water ensures that we stay hydrated at a cellular level. 

Learn to listen to your body.. Simply forcing water down your throat for just the sake of it will put unnecessary strain on your kidneys. 

Generally, the best way forward is to always drink water when you are thirsty or hungry and then the hot or cold beverage or meal, if you still feel like it.

With adequate water, all the systems in your body work at optimum levels to benefit your health.

“Our own physical body possesses a wisdom, which we who inhabit the body lack. 

We give it orders, which makes no sense.”
