How To Stay Hydrated In The Summer

It’s hot out! And when you start to sweat, one thing becomes super important:

Water.

I’m sure this isn’t news to you (especially because I LOVE to talk about how important water is health). But with all the outdoor activities and busy moments of the season, drinking enough is usually the last thing on your mind.

Since it’s best to drink half your body weight in ounces of water (150 lb person = 75 ounces of water a day), it’s really important to make a habit of hydration.

So, I thought I’d share a few quick tips that’ll help you stay hydrated all summer long.

1. Start Your Day With A Drink

During the summer, your daily routine often gets thrown for a loop. Instead of letting a crazy day go by without a sip, drink a big glass of water first thing in the morning.

Set your favorite glass or bottle right next to your bed. That way, you wake up, see the glass, and know it’s water time.

This morning glass of water will soon become second nature and help keep you hydrated in every season!

2. Have An Extra Glass With Every Meal

When you’re trying to get into a new routine, sometimes it’s easier to pair a new habit with an old habit.

You’re used to eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner, right? Well, when you add one extra glass of water to those consistent meals, you’re establishing a new hydration habit that’s easy to stick to.

If you already drink water at mealtimes, great! Add an extra helping of H20 to make sure your body is really getting the hydration it needs to function its best.

3. Mix It Up

If you’re just starting to add more water to your life, 75-ish ounces can be a lot. And having the same drink over and over again can get a little boring.

Luckily, there’s lots more than a plain old glass of water. Try a seltzer or sparkling water (just check the label to make sure there’s no added sugar or artificial sweeteners). Flavored seltzers practically taste like soda pop, but have none of the awful ingredients.

Or, add fruit. Take a pitcher of water, add in lemons, limes, or your favorite berry, and let it set in the fridge overnight. The next morning you’ll have deliciously infused water. And all the leftover fruit in the pitcher is an extra treat!

With the extra heat and sun exposure that comes with summer, staying hydrated is even more important than ever. But with these simple tricks, you’ll be a water-drinking pro in no time.
