Finally, my brethen, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might Ephesians 6:10
Welcome to my vault, come in, it is very lovely that you dropped by.
Hope you had a good weekend. My weekend was a great one, very sunny on Saturday and showers of blessings on Sunday and it was also a dark and gloomy day.
The contrast A very big contrast in life It can be sunny and joyful Yet it can also be dark and I can be completely blinded by the darkness How long can the darkness continue My spirit is broken My days are extinguished My eyes have also grown dim because of the sorrows And everything around me Are like a shadow Yet the joy of Lord is my strength Let Your words be a light to my path Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You Yes Lord, my God and my Saviour Yes Father, let those that love Your Salvation Say continually let God be magnified Come Holy Spirit Make haste to me, Jesus You are my Helper and my deliverer Lord do not delay for I am poor and needy O God do not be far away from me Yes the darkness can feel like a long time as listen to the devastating news Praying for a miracle Praying for a change I will always hope continually And I will praise You yet more and more
Come, know that there is a time for every season
Let’s see what the vault has in store…
No one can survive without water. Water makes up to 60 percent of our body weight and it is needed to keep our organs functioning.
Keeping hydrated is necessary for many of our important bodily functions to take place.
Why is it important?
It help to remove waste products in the urine
Lubracts our joints
Transports nutrients around the body
And controls the body temperature
It can also help to make the skin look good
Dehydration is defined as the excessive loss of water from the body and it occurs when people lose more water than they are taking in.
Lose of water from the body can occur by
Defecation (diarrhoea can cause excessive water loss)
Breathing out (water is expired in the breath)
Tips to avoid dehydration during the day
Drink little and often through the day – try keeping a bottle with and remember to sip it throughout the day can prevent dehydration
Don’t wait until you are thirsty before drinking water
Monitor your urine colour. Urine should be pale and straw coloured. Dark coloured urine indicates dehydration
Replace caffeinated drinks with non-caffeinated drinks
Tips to avoid dehydration during exercise
Try not to start any exercise if you are dehydrated, as it will only make you more dehydrated
Don’t wear too much clothing during exercise as this will cause excessive sweating
Sip water throughout the exercise session
Replace any loss fluids immediately after an exercise session
Use reminders to avoid dehydration:
Always aim for a gradual increase of water intake
It also good to become aware of how much water to drink to help you keep on top of it and avoid dehydration
Use reminders – an alarm on the phone to remind you to drink some water every 1 – 2 hours or get an app to remind you. You can also use sticky notes around you to remind you.
How much water do I need?
The amount of water varies as it depends on the climate and what you spend your time doing.
Six to eight glasses is the recommended
The amount of fluid loss each day should always be replaced by the fluids drunk and food eaten. This will prevent dehydration.
The exact amount to drink daily does depend on:
Age – as you get older the body stores less water and the kidneys don’t work as they once did
Physical activity – the more exercise you do the more you need to drink
The climate and environment – if the weather is hot and you are sweating a lot more water is needed, if the house is warm or office with either a central heating or air conditioning then more water is also needed. Both air conditioning and central heating can dry the air
If pregnant or breastfeeding – more water is needed as you are more likely to develop constipation.
Rehydrating after caffeine
Coffee or Tea has a diuretic effect which means it can also increase the amount of water loss by the body. This does not necessarily lead to dehydration, it does mean that, when drinking coffee or tea, make sure to drink enough other fluids to keep hydrated. Also make sure that the other drinks are low in sugar or caffeine.
Oh dear, look around. It is time for me to say goodbye but... hope to see you again. Thank you again for stopping by it means a lot to me Pray you have a wonderful week 🙂 May your week be full of The Joy of the Lord I praise God for your life May He teach you His way as you walk in His foot path In the Name of Jesus Amen Remember, We cannot control what happens around us, but we can control our responses. Be bless and know that the Lord loves you Lots of Love - Hannah ©Hannah M Vandi. And I also pray that this verse refreshes you this week: 'However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
