“Have you had enough
This is the first
question we are often asked if we have anything from a headache to a sore
muscle. Water and proper hydration are critical for keeping your body in peak
condition. There are some days when the water bottle does not travel everywhere
with us, or we spend most of the day inside so we are not thinking about taking
those important sips. When this happens, we can become dehydrated quite
quickly, and you do not want to be panting with the dogs this summer!
Get Hyped for Hydration!
Honestly, the best way
to remember to drink water is to be excited about it. This means picking out a
new water bottle with a decent capacity that travels well. Also, it is fun to
treat yourself to a little retail therapy to achieve this hydration goal. Not
to mention, a reusable water bottle is a great way to go green!
Getting in the habit of drinking water is the best way for hydration to work for you. If your organs are used
to a regular and consistent water intake, they will make allowances for you if
you lack in the future.
Some ways you can
incorporate more water into your daily fluid consumption are:
●start your day with a 8 ounces of water before
coffee, tea or anything else
●consume 8 ounces of water with every meal
●take a few sips even if you are not thirsty
●set a goal to finish a certain amount per day
In addition to
drinking water, many fruits and vegetables have high water content, helping you
stay hydrated. Melons, cucumbers, lettuce, bell peppers, pineapple, and more!
Check out this fan
favorite sweet summer recipe that is full of vitamins and also high in water content! A great thing
about this sweet salad is that you can customize it to add more high water
content foods for ultimate hydration. Also, it is a delicious and light summer
Some further tips for
these super hot days are to limit the time you have in the sun. There are
harmful UV rays that can put a damper on your day if proper protection is not
put in place.
Things like sunblock
and our athletic bracelets can help combat the positive ions found within the UV rays. Another tip
is to drink more water with how active you plan to be during the day. Water
levels should be increased as you exert and sweat more!
So, the next time you
are hitting the beach or the links for a tee time, make sure to pack your
reusable water bottle, a deliciously hydrating sweet salad for lunch, and
accessorize with an Ionloop negative ion band!
