SUMMER HEALTH: HYDRATION IS THE KEY

Image may contain: drink

 

It’s summer time. The sun is bright, the heat is high, and you’re sweating!!!! It’s likely that you are not staying hydrated during the day ?? That’s why we’re here.

Before continuing with the tips, I just want to make sure you know the basic concepts. So what is water? It is one of the essential nutrients from the diet – in fact, our body is 60% water by weight. Therefore, it is absolutely important to keep ourselves hydrated, especially at this time of the year.

So now, do you want some tips for hydration? Here are a few of them:

? Stick with H2O? – The easiest way to get yourself hydrated is actual water. Other types of fluid, including juices, milk, or even caffeinated drinks, can help you with hydration. But water would be beneficial, since it doesn’t require the unnecessary digestion for other substances, such as sugars or caffeine.

? Fill up your reusable bottle ? – You’re more likely to drink water if you have it handy. This is a personal story, but since I got my reusable bottle, I start to drink more, since I don’t have to walk all the way to the kitchen to get my water cup. And it’s actually sustainable and environmental friendly as well!!

? Track your drinking ? – There are apps helping with water tracking. Whenever you drink a cup of water, you’ll write it down, and after one day, you can see how much you drink throughout the day. These apps also have features to actually remind you to drink water if you are not drinking enough ?

? Infuse with flavors ? – If you want to add some twist to your water, make it playful with fruits. You have seen different types of infused water at your favorite restaurants, but it is actually easy to make (Let’s pretend that we don’t know our next recipe is INFUSED WATER ?)

? Eat your fluid ? – Yes, you heard it right. You can eat your fluid. Fruits and vegetables have really high water content, so it’s beneficial to eat these foods!! Some examples are cucumber, celery, tomatoes, cauliflowers, watermelon, and strawberries (there are a lot more – contact us for further details ?)
