Tomorrow is National Hydration Day: Beach Goers Prioritize Packing Snacks More Than Water

 

Tomorrow is National Hydration Day (June 23), and it’s important to remind others to drink plenty of fluids - especially under the hot summer sun. 

MedStar Health recently conducted a

survey and found that beach goers are more likely to pack snacks (78%) than water (60%). 

Skipping out on H2O can lead to major health risks, here are a few things you can do to make sure your body is healthy and full of fluids: 

Be Aware of Dehydration Symptoms 

Nobody is immune to the risks of not staying hydrated enough, which is why it’s important to be aware of symptoms that can easily sneak up on you: 

  • Fatigue
  • Rapid heartbeat 
  • Drowsiness 
  • Muscle cramps 
  • Dry mouth/skin 

Set Reminders To Regularly Hydrate During The Day

Health experts recommend that an adequate fluid intake is equivalent to eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day (around half a gallon). Write out reminders on post-it notes or type them into your phone. After following these reminders for a while, they’ll likely become a habit that you’ll practice without even thinking about it.

Make Your Water Tasty 

If you avoid drinking water because you find the taste a little bland, you can add flavor with fresh fruit like berries, lemon or cucumber slices.

Eat Water-rich Fruits and Vegetables

There are lots of fruits and vegetables that have a high water content, such as: watermelon, peaches, pineapple, strawberries, zucchini, tomatoes, and cucumber. Add these to your diet and stay hydrated all summer long! 

I never go anywhere without water. I have a constant nasal drip which makes me very thirsty so I drink a ton of water but my new favorite is !Cactus! Organic Cactus Water. The Desert Hydrator It is so good.
