Hydration Insomnia- Tackling The Challenges Of Drinking Enough Water

One of my big goals (possibly my biggest in terms of health benefits!) that I’ve laid out for myself in my 101 in 1001 challenge is to get in the habit of drinking 64 ounces of water each day.

I’m TERRIBLE about getting enough fluids, and more often than not, I end up with a dehydration headache at the end of day day.  Clearly this needs to change.

This is my plan to get on the right track:

water schedule

(this is not mine, but I plan to manifest its twin)

A daily, hour-by-hour schedule for getting enough water.  Because I’m not afraid to admit that I need the idiot’s guide to hydration 🙂  Plus, I just think this is a really fabulous idea! (kudos to whoever came up with it!)

My biggest concern is the affliction that goes along with it.

I call it “hydration insomnia.” 

Seriously folks…when I’m well-hydrated, I’m up like 4 times a night!  How does a girl get a good night’s sleep??  The struggle is real.  *sigh* 

It’s worth it. It’s worth it. It’s worth it.

QOTD: Have you dealt with these crazy issues on your health journey?

  1. I suppose better to wake up because of that than not being able to sleep at all. I’m beginning to wonder if part of my non-sleeping issues is because I do not have enough water throughout the day.

  2. I use to chug all my water at night and had the same problem. I now just super drink in the morning, then again around 2pm *when I want to snack*. I pee 24/7 but it’s all clear so it’s all good in the hood!
