Drink jij genoeg water?

Drink jij genoeg water?

Elke dag 1,5 à 2 liter water drinken is nodig om je lichaam gezond te houden. Vrij logisch ook als je bedenkt dat dat zelfde lichaam voor meer dan de helft uit water bestaat. De totale hoeveelheid vocht in je lichaam hangt af van o.a. je gewicht, je leeftijd en je geslacht maar ook je lichaamssamenstelling (o.a. de hoeveelheid spiermassa), waar je woont en hoeveel je dagelijks beweegt, hebben invloed op de hoeveelheid vocht dat je lichaam nodig heeft.

Het percentage water waaruit we bestaan:

Zuigelingen : ± 75 % van het lichaamsgewicht
Mannen : ± 60 % van het lichaamsgewicht
Vrouwen : ± 55 % van het lichaamsgewicht

Om je dag goed te starten, drink je best meteen één à twee grote glazen water. Dit doe je best nog voor je je eerste kopje koffie naar binnen werkt. Drink ook een glas water voor en na elke maaltijd. Je spijsvertering werkt beter wanneer je ook tijdens het eten regelmatig een slokje water drinkt. Ben je niet zo’n fan van water, dan kan je proberen om wat fruit toe te voegen voor wat extra smaak. Ook bruiswater kan voor een goede afwisseling zorgen.

 Een recente studie toont aan dat wanneer je niet genoeg water drinkt, je sneller last zal hebben van stress of je depressief zal voelen. Je concentreren zal ook moeilijker gaan en wanneer je last hebt van hoofdpijn, ben je waarschijnlijk gewoon uitgedroogd en heeft je lichaam nood aan water. In je auto, op je werk en zelfs wanneer je voor televisie zit, met je flesje water binnen handbereik, zal je veel makkelijker je dagelijkse hoeveelheid drinken. 

Ook je huid zal er wel bij varen, hydrateren van binnen uit is nog altijd de beste manier om je huid soepel te houden en het bespaart je ook een heleboel geld aan hydraterende dagcrèmes en andere vochtinbrengende smeersels.

En is water nu niet meteen je favoriete drankje? Probeer dan zeker de heerlijke waters met smaakjes van frieke eens uit, zij zet in haar blog 'WATER DRINKEN' 7 heerlijke receptjes op een rij.

En nu, tijd voor een glaasje water...

A tiny tropical fish with a sense of self.
Hello! I am the blue wrasse and would love to tell you something. - #today #scienceresearch #wrassewrasse #animalblogpost A few weeks ago, divers appeared among the beautiful reef in which I live. That was not the first time and because they always left us alone before, I just continued with my 'assignment'. That is rid of fish from parasites. We help fish in all sizes Also very large. Actually, I'm not really sure what these fish think about us. Perhaps they think that we are very social and therefore necessarily want to rid them of their inconveniences. But hi hi, we just love parasites. That is our food source . The fish who want to make a clean make it known with the movements they make, or sounds they make. Some whip their tails. Others are constantly opening their mouth. They never eat us because they are all too happy when they get rid of those parasites . So in four weeks, I was diligently brushing, so collecting my favorite fare, when I suddenly ended up in a big green mesh net . A diver was the cause of that. I was almost shocked by a bump. The creature brought me to the surface. Really a really nasty experience But again, she released me from the net into a reservoir. A little after that, we sat in a medium-sized aquarium with a small swarm . Which was confirmed on one side something in which I could see myself. At first I thought this was another cleaning fish that was challenging le wat . Because it seemed to tap my face every time. But, after a skirmish, I suddenly realized it was me. Yes waded! What an experience. I thought I did look nice. So beautiful blue, small and slim. So I did some dances for my own reflection. Whew it was quite a relief that I wasn't confronted with an aggressive fish of my own kind. Then suddenly I saw a brown spot on my skin. I knew that a diver had inflicted it on my skin. That dot looked completely like a parasite. But unfortunately it wasn't . I had to look at my bodice of hgel against a stone lying in the bin. But again, I am completely pure again. The next day she put me and the other fish in a different tank, certainly. Now the mirror was not the entire width of the widest window. But right to the much narrower. And the creature that caught me did put another dot on my body. The Netherners. It made me feel terribly small and impotent. I had never felt that kind of powerless feeling in the reef between the corals and the very big fish. Well if everyone accepts you as a fish and does you no harm, you won't think about that either. This time, of course, I knew better immediately. So I only admired a little more in that narrower mirror. Anything else you couldn't do in the aquarium and scrub off the stain they had inflicted on me . In the meantime, I was getting hungry and an awful lot of homesickness. Which caused me to crave my own hiding spot for the night and, of course, my friends, the fish in need of care. The next day we were put into another thing. This time with the mirror to the left and the same again: a dot on my body. Yes, say. That's when I really had my coming from it. But also this time, out of boredom, I did some dances in the mirror. But I really felt a bit weakened without my daily portion of fresh parasites . We did get food. But fed up that was importantnot fresh and far from tasty. And then whoopee! they transferred us into a cockpit, the whole group all of a sudden, and let go back. All right, this was in our familiar spot . Because I was afraid they would just tip us out of here I was euphorically happy when I found my hideout intact for the night. Those divers are weird snouts, huh? I've already thought silly. But, so far, still can't figure out why they did such a thing to us. It must have something to do with those mirrors. But what? But yes I have actually been happy for a long time now that I can fill my belly again and that I have my friends, the fish in need of care, back in my vicinity. Conclusion of the researchers. The blue wrasse appears to have a self-awareness. We didn't expect this at all with a fish So there will be more fish that have that. The wrasse does have a good eyesight . This must have it in order to see the tiny parasites clearly High cognitive behavior, such as recognizing yourself in the mirror, is not limited to humans, great apes, chimpanzees, dolphins, magpies and elephants Since we have repeated this sample a few times, we now know that smaller fish with a self-awareness also exist . So not all fish belong to a group of lower cognitive abilities
