Water and proper fluid balance is pretty important for life.

So thirst is controlled in one of the oldest, deepest parts of our brain. And there’s a complex regulatory system that organizes the delicate body balance of electrolytes (such as sodium and potassium) and fluids (i.e. water).

Our bodies are pretty smart.

They get thirsty when they need water.

We drink water. Body happy.

The end.

Yet we often try to out-think our clever bodies.

We drink — often to excess — when we aren’t thirsty, because we’re afraid of being “dehydrated”
