Fight fatigue with water: Why water cures you when you are tired
What's the easiest, cheapest, and fastest cure when you're dragging? Water. Fatigue is, after all, one of the first signs of dehydration. Even a small drop in your body's water levels can hurt you. A recent study from Tufts University found that mild dehydration -- a loss of just 1 to 2 percent of body weight as water -- was enough to impair thinking. If it turns into full-blown dehydration, it could cause an imbalance in electrolytes like sodium and potassium, which aid muscles and heart function.
