Like many people, you may wonder how much water you should be drinking on a daily basis.

The calculation for the amount of water you should drink each day is based on your body weight. For every two (2) pounds you weigh, you should be drinking one (1) ounce of water per day.

For example, someone weighing 200 lbs should drink 100 oz of water each day and someone who weights 130 lbs should be drinking 65 oz of water every day.

This calculation is also a great measuring tool for kids! As a rule, you should increase the amount of water you drink if:

  • the weather is hot
  • you are exercising
  • you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • you have a fever, vomiting or diarrhea
  • you are trying to lose weight

Don’t want to exercise but want to feel great? Try stretching!

Doing stretches throughout the day can make your body feel limber and revitalized with minimal effort.

You may be thinking that stretching only has a place before or after a workout, but you’re wrong! Stretching can be its own healthy exercise!Here’s why:


  • …increases your body’s flexibility;
  • …boosts energy and releases tension;
  • …reduces muscle soreness and stiffness;
  • …reduces the risk of injury;
  • …increases & encourages blood flow/nutrient supply to muscles & cartilage;
  • …improves muscle balance around joints, thus improving posture;
  • …warms your body up in preparation for an active day;
  • …relaxes your body at the end of that active day, enhancing muscle recovery.
