With schools back in session, let’s go on a quick Science refresher. Water is life. It is everywhere around us. Our planet is made out of roughly 71% water, while our body is about 60% water. We need water for digestion, secretion, breathing and blood circulation. Our environment needs water too; from the tiniest of insects to the giant whales in the oceans, from moss to giant rainforest trees, water is essential to every living thing on this planet. With water playing such an important role in our lives and the life of our planet as well, are you getting enough water and how to ensure that you are drinking sufficiently.
Water keeps us going!
You should drink around 2 liters of water daily, which is about 8 glasses and if you sweat more or participate in sports or exercise, then you should increase your intake to another 2 glasses of water. Did you know that men drink more water than women? They do, about a liter more too.
With all these mention about liters and glasses, some would find it troublesome to remember how much water we have drunk throughout the day. Luckily, there is help available!
- Water Apps- with about so many apps available for almost everything, you can try downloading one of those water drinking apps where the app buzzes you as a reminder to drink water.
- Water bottle- measure your water intake using your water bottle. Say you have a 1 liter bottle to start off your day in the morning, just finish it by lunch, refill and finish the other liter by the time you get off work. Our Tupperware Eco Bottles come in various sizes, from 350ml to 2 liters.
If you find plain water boring, try making your own water infusions! Mint leaves, cucumber slices, strawberries and blueberries are just a few ingredients you can put into your water for some fun, fresh flavors. Now, we wouldn’t mind gulping down on that the whole day.
Clean water sources
Malaysia is a country blest with abundant water sources; from monsoon rains all year round to our many flowing rivers, water shouldn’t be difficult to get. Yet, in recent years we have seen water shortages and water pollution situations increasing. These situations arise from the increase in development and population, outdated water pipes that lead to burst pipes, weak law enforcement on protecting water sources, poor urban management and lack of public responsibility on the usage of water.
Water shortages at home can be solved with larger water tank installations. But how do we ensure the water that we use at home is clean? Our water can be polluted not just from the source itself i.e. dams and rivers, but also from the old pipes running into and throughout our homes. We use water to clean, cook, drink and bathe. It is important that our water is free from contaminants, viruses, bacteria and still contain minerals that are beneficial to our health.
