Hydrate Your Body
Here comes the Fall and Winter months again and the need to stay hydrated for your overall health and wellness!
When I moved to the high mountain desert I got altitude sickness because was my body was adjusting to the change, but I also was not drinking enough water. Then you add in the dryness here. I wear moisturizer and sunscreen 365 here. I have to be hydrate smart as well as sun smart here.
Hydration is key to your body in being able to function efficiently and effectively! It cleanses your body of toxins and helps your immune system. It helps you maintain your energy. It helps keep your skin, hair and nails healthy and looking good.
I reach for the liquids when I feel hungry, tired or headachy. I have a water bottle with me at all times to stay hydrated throughout the day. There are so many alternatives than drinking tap water! You can infused water with fruits, veggies and herbs, like mint. You can add in a cup of tea. Hot, cold or on ice. There is even a fridge out now with a sparkling water option!
I usually start stocking up on herbal teas and lemons in the Fall and Winter months! I want to keep my immunity strong and myself healthy. I also want to keep my hydration as natural as possible too.
I have learned that it is worth the investment in having different water bottles and carafes as well as maybe a filtered water system too. I am able to hydrate myself better with a squeeze water bottle while biking. I invested in a CamelBak with a water bladder for mountain hiking. There are so many options to explore in order to choose the one that works best for you and your needs!
