Hello Water Friend,

Anxiety is becoming more and more common, especially with young people.

I am sure there are many reasons for this (both physiologically and psychologically), especially considering the many challenges of life and increasingly high levels of stress.

The degrees of anxiety range from mild nervousness, sleeplessness, or debilitating panic attacks.

Regardless of the primary cause or intensity of one’s symptoms of anxiety or depression, studies have shown there is a link between dehydration and anxiety.

We know that dehydration can lead to insufficient levels of serotonin, an important neurotransmitter. Low levels of serotonin have been associated with depression, anxiety and other mood disorders.

Thus our articles this issue are focused on the link between dehydration and anxiety, nervousness, as well as depression.

To your happiness and emotional well-being,
