Dehydration can result in fatigue and mental fogginess, which sure doesn’t help your motivation. Before doing intensive mental or physical work, try drinking a glass of ice cold water and watch how it refreshes you. Also be sure to keep drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

NUTRITION FACT: Ice-cold beverages prompt the body to burn more calories during digestion. Your body will increase your metabolic rate in response to the low temp of the iced water. And because water has no calories increased metabolism results in fat-burning.
