3 Ways to Stay Hydrated in the Southern Summer Heat

On these steamy HOT 90 degree plus summer days please pack your water bottle. There’s nothing we can do to prevent sweating unless we could sit in air conditioning 24/7 and that is just crazy. STAYING HYDRATED IS KEY! The more we expend our bodies in the summer heat the more we need to make a conscious effort to hydrate.

Some common signs of dehydration are: brain fog, fatigue, headaches and dizziness.

1. Your water bottle is your go-to accessory

You already have a good SPF 50 and sunglasses. A reusable water bottle is a must for the beach trips-pool days- baseball games and picnics. Your need to drink one half of your body weight in ounces each day.

Would you drink from a  PrimeSpine water bottle? We have them for sale! Of course they are high quality as well as stylish.

A clever hack is to keep an extra water bottle in your car! I tend to forget things when I leave home.

2. Use an app tracker

If you need a little reminder to drink more water, set a reminder on your phone or download a free-high quality water app that will alert you when it’s time to start increasing your hydration.

3. Snack on water-quenched foods

Water hides in so many of the foods we consume providing an additional 20% of our daily hydration needs. In-season fruits and veggies help you hit that water mark. Watermelon, cucumbers, tomatoes are a few. Dunk in a handful of diced strawberries for a delicious twist. Infuse your water with flavor whether it’s with fruits, veggies or herbs.
I always prepare it in advance.

Let's make it an easy - breezy - refreshing and healthy summer.
