Your body needs water to perform daily tasks like breathing and processing food.
However, your physical health is only part of the equation. Your behaviour and emotions are both impacted by your mental health.
So, if water is necessary for daily activities… Does that also extend to mental health?
Your brain and water
Water makes up 75% of the human brain.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that dehydration can cause unwanted side effects.
Once the brain becomes dehydrated, blood circulation slows down, decreasing the amount of oxygen travelling through your body and brain.
As a result, a person may experience fatigue, headaches, and brain fog – a loss of focus, and other related problems.
What’s more, severe dehydration might resemble dementia-like symptoms.
Water and your mental health
Since dehydration makes it harder for the brain to perform, staying hydrated gives you the best chance of thinking clearly and being focused.
According to a 2018 study published in the World Journal of Psychiatry, researchers found that better hydration has a direct impact on your mental health. The study found that:
“In a sample of 3,327 adults, drinking five or more glasses of plain water daily was associated with a lower risk of depression. However, those who drank less than two glasses of water had an increased risk for depression (73% increase for men and 54% increase for women).”
