We love the summer! Time for travel and lots of fun outdoor activities! But with all the exposure to the sun and heat, we also tend to lose lots of fluids leading to dehydration.
Here are 3 simple ways you can stay hydrated throughout the summer to beat the summer heat:
Water: It’s hot outside and you think a cold refreshing glass of water will cool you down. Actually drinking room temperature water is more beneficial to your body. The water is absorbed better and less likely to cause stomach cramps.
Fruits/Vegetables: We are all aware that water is the major source to keep us hydrated, as our bodies our made up mostly of water. Fruits and vegetables are also made up of mostly water, making them an excellent choice for hydration. Watermelon, strawberries and cucumbers are a few choices you can carry around to snack on while having your summer fun!
Coconut Water: This yummy drink is comprised of 95% water. It’s a great replacement for sports drinks as it has fewer calories, less sodium and high in potassium.
The summer is about having fun! Not passing out! So stay hydrated!
