Tips for a Healthy and Hydrated Summer

 

August is upon us and we have been dealing with record heat this summer. It is very important to STAY HYDRATED!

hydrated and healthy summer

Here are just a few signs that our body could be giving us when we’re┬ádehydrated:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Low energy levels
  • Muscle cramps
  • Infrequent urination
  • Darker than normal urination

A good rule of thumb for water consumption is to drink 1/2 of your body weight in ounces, siding with over-consumption during the hot summer months.
(i/e a 180 pound person should consume about 90 ounces of water per day)

While this may sound like a lot of H2O, we have you covered with a few tips to give you a bump in your water consumption:

  • Drink a glass of water before you brush your teethhydrated glass of water
  • Use a water-tracking phone app (we like the free app My Water Balance)
  • Buy a reusable water bottle with an infuser to make more flavorful water
  • Enjoy a glass before each meal (which may also aid against over-eating)
