Sip or Gulp

How many times have you been asked…“are you drinking enough water?”

Quite simply, the importance of staying hydrated can sometimes be overshadowed by the demands of the day. So, do you sip or gulp your water and do you sip or gulp enough?

Here are 6 reasons you might consider sipping or gulping more water each day.

Sip or gulp, your choice…the key is to ensure a consistent intake to support your body’s essential functions.
