Hydration is more than drinking water.
I have never thought about hydration as it is explained in Melt by Sue Hiltzman. I thought you just drank more water to be hydrated but Sue has opened my eyes to how our bodies are hydrated.
Here is what she says, “Think of a dry sponge- its stiff – but when it’s moist, it’s flexible, adaptable and resilient. You can twist, squeeze, or compress a moist sponge and it returns to its original shape. Your body’s connective tissue is similar: when it’s hydrated, it’s buoyant and adaptable. When it’s dehydrated, it’s stiff and inflexible.”
