Off your Mental Game? You Could be Mildly Dehydrated

Did you know even mild levels of dehydration can mess with your mood, your energy, and your ability to think clearly, making it hard to concentrate during that long meeting?

A growing body of evidence finds that being just a little dehydrated is tied to a range of subtle effects — from mood changes to muddled thinking. In essence, the more dehydrated you are the less sharp you are.
Your brain on H2O - When the brain is fully hydrated, the exchange of nutrients and toxins will be more efficient—thus ensuring better concentration and mental alertness.

Women are especially susceptible to dehydration - women who were dehydrated had about 12 percent more total errors on cognitive tests and were more likely to have headaches and report difficulty concentrating.
