Learn the Signs of Dehydration

Without sufficient water intake, we become dehydrated and put our bodies at a higher risk of experiencing negative side effects. Fredrick Health states that headaches, dizziness, muscle cramps, rapid breathing, fainting and inability to urinate are all signs of dehydration.

What can you do to prevent this? Drink plenty of water and fluids, especially to replenish any nutritional water loss you have experienced. If it’s a hot day outside, make sure you are limiting your time in the hot sun. Take a break, grab a bottle of clean, filtered water and cool off. Your body will thank you.

Swap Out Your Soda for Water

Not all liquids are the same, and some actually work against you. Soda, energy drinks, lemonade, sweet tea and alcohol are all drinks that dehydrate your body. Instead of coffee, start your day off with a glass of water. Give your body the chance to start off on the right foot.

We all like to treat ourselves to delicious meals, but just think of treating your body by drinking clean, nutritional water. Next time you go out to eat, choose a refreshing glass of water to accompany your meal.

Replenish

Who is excited to get back outside and enjoy the summer? I know I am! But, summer weather can be tough on our bodies.

Whether we are playing sports or doing an activity outside, the heat and humidity are all factors that cause you to sweat. To ensure you are not sweating away all of your body’s fluids, it’s imperative that you continuously replenish. Stay hydrated by drinking enough water before, during, and after activities.

Eat Foods with High Water Content

Drinking water makes up the majority of your body’s water intake, and you gain the rest by eating whole fruits and vegetables. Stay hydrated by snacking on these delicious foods: cucumbers, celery, tomatoes, radishes, peppers, cauliflower, watermelon, spinach, strawberries, broccoli, and grapefruits. Eating a well-balanced meal is beneficial for you entire body.

For your next outing this summer, consider these steps so you are ensuring that you are staying hydrated and healthy! And LifeSource Water can help you achieve this goal by giving you access to clean water out of every tap in your home.
