The importance of drinking water to keep hydrated

Now that the hot summer season is upon us, it’s a good time to remind everyone about the importance of drinking water to keep hydrated.

Water in the desert

The guideline is to drink at least 8 x 8 ounce glasses a day which is approximately 2 litres a day. You shouldn’t wait to feel thirsty before you drink, it’s best to get into a routine of drinking water regularly throughout the day.

Did you know that drinking water can help you to lose weight? It’s also important to help maintain your temperature and lubricate your joints, as well as making you go to the loo to remove waste.

HELA Pet Crematorium in Lanzarote

The only legal option to deal with a deceased pet until now was to leave your vet to organise with disposing of the pet's remains and our understanding is that they end up in the dump. Burying them in a field or even in your private garden is apparently illegal! If any one wanted to have their pet cremated the nearest place they would do it was in Las Palmas.

This has now changed thanks to two young entrepreneurs from Lanzarote Juan Reguilón Sainz and Eduardo González Miranda who had been considering the idea of this much needed service for the last few years. A couple of years ago they sat and looked at the figures more seriously. Finally the actual setting up of the business started in August last year and after a lot of planning and red-tape they are pretty much ready to roll it out. read more »
