Tips for Staying Hydrated
In the throws of the season's temperature peaks, keeping your body hydrated is absolutely essential.
Keep a Water Bottle Handy
Here's a piece of advice that's simple and efficient:
Don't Wait Until You're Thirsty
Make Your Water More Interesting
Not much of a fan of plain water? Many recommend adding herbs and fresh fruit — citrus and berries are popular choices — to you water to boost the flavor intrigue. (We love this recipe for watermelon, cucumber, mint water.) Some also claim that lemon water (made by mixing in the juice of a quarter a lemon) helps balance electrolytes and promotes the absorption of water into your cells. Or if you're a big soda drinker, opt for sparkling water or club soda instead which at least offers a similar texture — just make sure it doesn't have any added sugar or sodium.
Drink Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Juices
Skim Milk, Coconut Water
Minimize Caffeine and Alcohol Intake
This one's a bit of a no-brainer but worth stating nonetheless.
