“You’re dehydrated”, my doctor replied after I went to his office complaining of frequent headaches and low energy levels at work. It didn’t dawn on me that my symptoms were related to my water consumption – or lack of it. I left the doctor’s office and immediately downloaded a water app–an app on my phone that sends me reminders to drink water. I learned that dehydration can lead to fatigue, dizziness, poor concentration and reduced cognitive abilities, which were all symptoms my oldest daughter, who attends middle school, was experiencing as well. I decided to spend the next few days doing some more research on the effects of not drinking enough water.
