I’ve always found advice on drinking enough water to be incredibly annoying. “Eight glasses a day”. What does that mean? How much is a “glass”? Who uses the word “glass” for a prescribed amount of anything? Is it a cup? 8oz? A pint? When why not just say that?
Traveling regularly as I do, avoiding dehydration is something that doesn’t come naturally anymore. Or is that a stupid “getting older” thing? I don’t know, but whatever the reason, I’ve caught it! Recently I came across a real answer for you, and I don’t want to forget it. So let’s print it here forever and ever.
