Keep yourself hydrated around the year

Most of us are aware of the dehydration that happens in the hot days of a year and in the occasion of certain illnesses, such as diarrhoea and fever. Although those are great causes of dehydration, we are not aware of less dramatic causes of it. During our daily lives we often neglect the adequate intake of water, especially during  the busy work days, work out sessions and sauna evenings.

The dreaded "Afternoon slump"

Most of us are familiar with the dreaded "Afternoon slump" at work, which is the moment when we feel like taking a nap, and pushing through the last hours of work feels like a drag.  It usually hits after eating lunch, approximately around 2pm and makes us feel lethargic for the rest of the afternoon, or even the whole day. It mostly affects people, though not limited to them, who are living more sedentary lifestyle, ie. work at offices, who drink a lot of coffee and forget to hydrate themselves properly. Also, the limited amount of sunlight during the late autumn and winter time can play a role in this. Some of the symptons also include: Frequent yawning and/or feeling sleepy...
