It’s the year 2018, and it’s coming close to 2019. These days it feels as if life is moving at an extremely fast pace. Most of us end up feeling like we cannot keep up. We are so busy trying to keep up with life, social media, relationships, and maybe even the Kardashians That it almost leaves us no proper time to take care of ourselves.
There are many days that it seems there is so much going on that we forget the basics. When I say basic, I mean, real basic! Like, hydration.
Did you know that some of our daily issues can all be summed up with one simple solution; staying properly hydrated? Have you ever stopped when you felt tired, headache, bothered by dry skin, that maybe something simple can help? Hydration is key. But some people they don’t know how to stay hydrated on the go.
The first, most easiest step is to drink! No, I am not talking about coffee or alcohol; I am talking about good ol’ H2O. Take a water bottle with you wherever you go! . Keep refilling that bottle of yours and make it a habit of not going anywhere without it.
Is water too plain for you? Not a problem! There are so many other options. Gatorade offers great taste and electrolytes. Not into that either? There are several options out there for vitamins, electrolytes, and flavor to be added to your water. You can take these simple little packets that you can take on the go!
If you are looking for a more “natural” way to flavor your water, infusing your water not only tastes amazing but it’s definitely becoming more of the trend! Infusion is where you place the fruit, veggies, or combination in water. Over time this water will naturally start grabbing the flavor of those that you added. These fruits and veggies are great for taste and health benefits. Since it is going to taste amazing you will most likely be consuming more water!
How eating can help your water intake
If drinking tons of fluids for hydration just isn’t for you and has always been an epic fail, don’t worry, you can actually eat things to help bring up your hydration level. There are plenty of food options that are made up of mostly water! Fruits and veggies such as, cucumbers, celery, watermelon, tomatoes, grapefruit are all made up above 90% water! So while you are on the move try bringing some healthy snacks with you.
Drinking beyond on-the-go
Many companies have designed backpacks that include a water pouch! So before you head out on your adventure fill up with your hydration choice and take it with you. While the bag is on your back there is a long tube and bite valve so you can literally drink and be on the move. If this is something you haven’t tried, you should! This is another simple and easy way to stay hydrated on the go!
These are some easy ways for you to stay hydrated on the go. To some it might feel like an inconvenience. But, you don’t need to feel that way! Once staying hydrated in your routine you won’t want it any other way. So give some of these ideas a try for your busy lifestyle and reap the benefits that come along with it!
A food for thought to remember about hydration from Dr. Paul C. Bragg N.D., Ph.D. & Dr. Patricia Bragg N.D., Ph.D. “People who ingest a sufficient amount of the right kinds of liquids (distilled water, fresh fruits and vegetables and their juices) have better body functioning and circulation overall, which are most important to Super Health and Long Life.”
