That is a very good point and can see that forcing too much at once might be counterproductive!

Drinking the right amount of water is a balancing act, just like everything else...  If you drink too little, you don't have adequate amounts to flush the waste matter out.  If you drink too much or too much at once, you may flush minerals, vitamins, and electrolytes out...

Maintaining (or acheiving) Homeostasis is the key...

ABJoe, what are some flags of homeostasis; meaning, how does one know they are in the zone?


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Hmm... I've read from various sources and also heard from hot yoga teachers I've had that sipping is a much more efficient way to hydrate your body.  From personal experience, I've felt a difference with this way too.

The reasoning is that ff you chug a lot of water at once it's too much for your body to absorb and you'll just have to pee a lot instead of actually absorbing the water and getting hydrated... plus a bad thing is that all that water flushing though your system can also flush out electrolytes and vitamins.  I think slow and steady sipping throughout the day is the best way to stay hydrated.


Think of watering a potted plant.  If you pour a big jug of water on the dirt, it will run through faster than the roots can take it up, especially if the dirt is very dry to start with.
But, if you drizzle the water on the top of the dirt to allow it to moisten and fluff up, then you can pour more water on slowly and the dirt can hold it.  And the roots can draw it out of the dirt and into the cells of the plant.

First thing in the morning, we are like the plant in dry dirt, and a lot of water drunk all at once is going straight through us.
Sipping water throughout the day keeps the tissues moist and responsive, able to absorb and transport water to all the body parts.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

I've always been known to like a little water with my ice.  

There is absolutely No Way I can even consider drinking room temperature anything!!!  It's that Texan thing again.  

Love,

Myra.

Also, it is said that reg water doesn't get into our cells as does the water from fruits and veggies.
