Are you Drinking Enough Water?

Woman-drinking-water-public1-300x199 There was an interesting discussion over on Twitter recently about ADD / ADHD and drinking water. This Tweet: Drink water and see if you feel more focused by Laura Rolands sparked up some interesting discussion. Becca Colao brought up the point that sometimes water can be over done. I have to say I agree with Laura Rolands on this one. People with ADD / ADHD do often tend to forget to drink water. This can lead to decreased focus because of dehydration.

Often times people with ADD / ADHD don't even realize their bodies are calling out for water. Often they will realize their body needs something though. They may reach for something like food or coffee instead of water! So, I'll add on to Laura's Tweet – Try drinking some water when you need to focus or your body is craving something and you aren't quite sure what.

    Yes, this is a tough one even though I have a dedicated bottle for water. It’s just sitting on the counter right now….best get it and fill it up!

    Thanks for this interesting post, Tara. I have a lot ofADHD Symptoms and so do my kids, and we actually do drink a lot of water but I can certainly see how this is a common problem.

    Yes! I have this problem. I’ll find myself snacking and wondering why I’m not satisfied! It’s because I need water!
