9 Tips for Staying Hydrated This Summer

We all know the importance of staying hydrated. Yet, many of us can’t seem to stay on top of it. Here, we’re sharing how to stay hydrated in hot weather, what to drink to stay hydrated, and more.

 

Drink More Water

Ok, we know. This one’s obvious. But, there’s no getting around the fact that drinking water is the easiest way to stay hydrated.

So, what are some tips to actually drink more water?

+ Add tick marks to your water bottle to meet hourly goals.
+ Set timers to remind you to drink up.
+ Track your water intake throughout the day. A reusable glass water bottle is perfect for tracking.
+ Recruit your friends and family to keep you accountable.

 

Eat Your Water

Surely, there’s a reason why summer fruits and veggies are packed with water, right? Here’s how to stay hydrated without drinking water.

Sweet watermelon chunks and crisp cucumber salads help you stay hydrated in summer. Perfect to snack on during a hot day at the beach, too.

 

Cut Back on the Coffee

This one’s a lot to ask. Especially of coffee-loving Aussies. Yet, it’s still an important aspect of staying hydrated.

Recent Studies have found that less than four cups of coffee per day won’t cause dehydration. But, the fact of the matter is, if you’re drinking too much coffee, you’re likely not drinking enough water

So, instead of going for your third cup of the day, switch to water instead to improve hydration.

 

Get a Reusable Water Bottle

Reusable water bottles are better for the environment. They’re also essential for anyone struggling to stay hydrated.

Invest in one that you love and can’t wait to use. That way, you’ll definitely remember to grab it as you’re sprinting out the door.

Spruce Up Your Beverages

One of the main complaints about drinking more water is that it tastes boring. We can’t argue on that one.

Spruce up your water with a sparkling alternative or infuse it with yummy fruits. Herbals teas are another tasty way to increase your water intake.

Collagen Supplements

Skin hydration is another piece of the puzzle. Even while doing everything we can to hydrate our bodies and care for our skin, it’s to no avail.

Add collagen supplements to your water or smoothies for a boost of skin hydration. Collagen is an essential protein. It can improve skin health allowing all that water-drinking to do its job.

In fact, studies show Collagen can help increase skin hydration and resilience by 91% in just two months!

Coconut Water

We’ve all heard of electrolytes. They’re a combination of vitamins and minerals that help your cells absorb water. Coconut water is packed with them.

Sports drinks with electrolytes are often full of sugar and other unnecessary additives. Whereas coconut water is a natural alternative that provides electrolytes for extra hydration.

 

Take a Break from Alcohol

Alcohol is a well-known diuretic meaning it makes our bodies excrete more water. In short, when intoxicated, you’ll head to the bathroom more often. 

In fact, the effects of a hangover are, in part, due to dehydration. Cutting back on your alcohol intake is a surefire way to boost hydration this summer.

 

Practice Sun Safety

It’s summer! So, you’ll likely be spending some time at the beach, in the pool, or sunbaking in your backyard. Still, sun safety is a big deal when it comes to hydration.

Be sure to slip, slop, slap and take breaks in the shade. Since you’ll be sweating in the sun, make sure you’re doubly aware of these tips for staying hydrated in summer.

From knowing what to drink (and not to drink) and taking specific steps toward better hydration, you’ll have more energy to make the most of summer.
