How to Stay Hydrated this Summer

Summer is here, and with the heat comes the need to stay hydrated. For Fontis Water customers this can easily be achieved by filling your water jug from a Fontis water cooler. However, sometimes it’s hard to remember to drink that extra glass of water. You know you can barely find time for a sandwich, much less a water break. However, according to Everyday Health, “staying hydrated has real advantages, including helping you maintain your and focus so you can operate more efficiently, so it’s important to give your drinking habits the attention they deserve.”

Hydration Tips

Here are some simple ways to make fueling up with fluid throughout the day a little easier:*

  1. Always carry a water bottle, and if you have desk job, always keep one at your desk. If you have a bottle within arms reach, it’s very likely that you’ll mindlessly sip from it throughout the day, without having to make a conscious effort.
  2. When you’re feeling frazzled or hazy, grab a glass of cold water. Studies show that people instantly feel more alert after drinking H2O. It’s a simple, healthy way to snap out of a midday slump.
  3. Sip on a mug of herbal tea every evening. If you make this a habit, you’ll add an extra cup of fluid to your tally every single day. On top of that, this relaxing ritual is a wonderful way to de-stress at the end of the day.
  4. Eat a diet rich in whole foods. By eating water-rich foods like vegetables, fruits, and yogurt, you’ll automatically up your fluid intake. On the other hand, processed snack foods like chips, crackers, and baked goods have minimal water content.

Water Benefits

Staying hydrated is also good for your skin, helps to increase weight loss, and can reduce headaches and joint pain. However, if you do not drink enough water, it can be detrimental to your health.

Severe dehydration has serious health consequences, but even mild dehydration may be damaging. Research shows that losing just two percent of your normal, well-hydrated body weight can contribute to fatigue, difficulty concentrating, confusion, and impaired mood. Dehydration can also cause headaches. Drinking plenty of water may help to relieve these types of headaches within a few hours. Dehydration is also a major risk factor for kidney stones, which now affect one in 11 adults (prevalence rates have nearly doubled over the past 15 years). Drinking plenty of water is key to preventing a recurrence, especially in hot summer months.*
