A couple of weeks ago on a coaching call, I was reminding the person about the two blog posts above to help with frequent and urgent urination. On our following FaceTime, she explained to me that the issues were resolved.
Then, she asked if drinking more water could have a positive effect on thinking because she felt that her mental clarity had improved. I had read in the past that the brain was made of a lot of water, so we looked it up.

You are worth it!!!
All my best,
