What's your Urine saying about your hydration?
Here's your Monday morning reminder: Drink Your Water! And check the color chart to see how you're doing with water consumption.

Here's the important part:
Pay attention to the color of your urine, even collect it in a cup every now and then, which will provide a true color.

Drink approximately half your body weight in ounces of water daily to avoid dehydration of the cells.
