Drink More Water, Drink Better Water
When was the last time you drank a whole glass of water? Not coffee, soda or juice, but actual clean water? It’s easy to get dehydrated during the heat of summer when you’re more likely to be sweating, but it’s just as easy to get dehydrated in the cold, dry months of winter when you may forget to drink enough water altogether. In the absence of heat to spark thirst, many people fail to meet their daily hydration needs.
You do get a significant amount of your daily water intake from foods, especially fresh produce, and warm drinks like tea and coffee to serve as one way to get H2O. But your body is nearly 60% water and needs a lot of water to grow your cells, keep your skin healthy, heal wounds and illnesses, support digestive health, keep your brain sharp, and help you to stay awake throughout the day. When the weather is cold, many people may not feel the sensation of thirst as much, leading to less water intake that can contribute to wintertime fatigue, gut problems, dry skin, and mood swings. Keep an eye out for the common signs of dehydration such as dizziness and fatigue.
A great way to combat wintertime dehydration is not only to make a point of drinking more water, but to drink better water altogether. One option is OXIGEN Water, a pH balanced, electrolyte enhanced, oxygen boosted water. With 25mg of electrolytes from sea salt in each bottle, OXIGEN Water provides better hydration. The added benefit of oxygen gives your system a boost when you may need it the most, whether you’re recovering from being sick or just completed a good workout.
You can also take the stress of mentally tracking your water intake off your own shoulders by downloading a water tracking app. There are a large number of handy apps you can install that allow you to input an amount of water you just drank, some measuring by what container or type of cup you drank from, and it may send you reminder notifications if you’re falling behind. Use technology to your benefit, because attaining better health doesn’t have to be hard!
