Beat the Heat: Tips For Staying Hydrated

Hey, Healthi fam! Coach Brianna here!

Summer is in full swing, and you know what that means – beach days, pool parties, and all-around fun in the sun! But, let’s face it, the heat can be totally brutal, and if there’s one thing we need to keep in check, it’s staying hydrated. So, grab your cute water bottles and let’s dive into some tips on how to stay hydrated, refreshed, and fabulous all summer long!

Water, water, water!

First things first, water is our BFF! Hydrating ourselves is like giving a big, cool hug to our bodies. Remember, when the sun’s out, our bodies can get seriously thirsty, so, it’s crucial we make water a priority. Not only will it help us feel amazing, but it’s also a secret weapon for that glowing summer skin. Cheers to that!

Jazz Up Your Water to Stay Hydrated

Now, I get it – plain water can be a bit “blah” sometimes. But fear not! We can jazz it up with some fruity flair. Toss in slices of fresh lemon, lime, or juicy berries for a pop of flavor. It’s like having your own spa water, but way more budget-friendly! A summer essential for all my on the go friends – invest in a cute reusable water bottle. Not only will it save the planet (you go, eco-warrior!), but it’ll also become your trendy summer accessory. Find one with a sassy slogan or a print that matches your vibe. I know I always drink more when it’s out of a straw and in a cute water bottle. 

Hydrating Snacks

Let’s talk about hydrating snacks – oh yes, they exist! Fresh produce like watermelon, cucumber, and strawberries are like hydrating treats sent from heaven. They’re packed with water, vitamins, and deliciousness, the perfect combo to keep us cool and quenched. Freeze some chunks and have them as icy snacks – talk about a game-changer! Now, picture this: you’re lounging by the pool with your friends or your kids, and suddenly someone yells, “I’ve got homemade popsicles!” That’s right – time to unleash your inner popsicle chef! Mix coconut water, your favorite fruit juice, or even blend some fruits together, pour the mixture into molds, and freeze. Voilà – you’ve got yourself the yummiest, hydrating treats under the sun! True story, my 7 year old niece offered me a popsicle that was made entirely of WATER. Yeah, it was an ice cube. Still, I enjoyed every bit of it because it was so hot outside. Don’t discount putting your water in a different shaped “package.” It was great! 

Make It a Habit

Lastly, I know summer adventures can get pretty wild, and it’s easy to forget to drink up. But trust me, staying hydrated is non-negotiable! Set reminders on your phone, carry your water bottle with you everywhere (seriously, everywhere!), and make drinking water a fun challenge. You’ll be surprised how much better you’ll feel and how much more you can slay the day. So, my friends, let’s raise our water bottles to a hydrated and fabulous summer! Your body will thank you, your skin will glow, and you’ll be ready to take on all the sunshine-filled memories coming your way. Stay cool, stay hydrated, and stay Healthi!
