Tips to Keep Hydrated
Why is Staying Hydrated so Important?
Water does more than just quench your thirst—it’s also critical to the functioning of your body and keeps skin looking healthy. Water helps in many ways such as:
Helps you stay alert and energized
Maintains body temperature
Prevents headaches and helps with brain health
Keeps skin healthy by maintaining the moisture barrier
Flushes toxins from your body
Decreases water retention and helps digestive function
You know what they say – if you’re feeling thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Don’t fall into the trap and ensure you give your body water throughout the day.
When Should You Drink Water?
Drinking water can be easy when you make it part of your daily routine. So, when should you drink water throughout the day?
First thing when you wake up; think of it as waking up the rest of your body with the H20 it needs!
Before, during, and after meals
Before and after exercise
When you feel thirsty (you are already dehydrated at this point!)
When you feel tired or sluggish – or just need some extra motivation
Why Should You Drink Filtered Water?
While tap water is a convenient option, quality can vary widely depending on where you live. The contaminants found in tap water can be considerable, including:
Harmful chemicals are known as PFOA/PFOS
Heavy metals Lead and Chromium
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) like salts and organic matter
Chlorine and other chemicals used to purify tap water can also leave an unpleasant taste or smell
If you want better water then invest in a ZeroWater® 5-Stage Filtration System that filters PFOA/PFOS, TDS, Chlorine, heavy metals, and other contaminants. Plus, filtered water has a fresher and more clear taste.
6 Tips to Increase Your Water Intake
Meeting your hydration goals can make you feel a whole new person. Try these easy ways to build a hydration habit.
Choose a reusable bottle – Carry a reusable water bottle with you everywhere you go and make a pledge to stop buying single-use plastic water bottles.
Infuse with flavours – Try adding different flavours of fruit, such as sliced lemon, cucumber, and mint leaves to create a refreshing base for your water.
Eat your water – Water-rich foods like melon, celery, romaine lettuce, bell peppers, and tomatoes can help supplement hydration.
Drink at regular periods – You can develop a habit of drinking water at specific times, like 30 minutes before exercising or first thing in the morning. Doing so will make remembering to drink water more of an “autopilot” process.
Set alarms – If you need extra help remembering, set a reminder or alarm on your phone.
Find a buddy – Ask a friend to help hold you accountable for staying hydrated and celebrate when you meet your goals.
