Hydration Tips for the Hot Summer
As your go-to experts in water filtration and water softeners, we at Kinetico know how vital water becomes over the hot summer months. Hydration is especially important in the dry deserts of Utah.
Here are several tips for staying hydrated over the hot summer.
Drinking water regularly is vital for summer hydration, and one of the easiest ways to do this is to carry a water bottle with you throughout the day. Keep it with you from morning until heading to bed at night, and if you want to be extra diligent, track how many times per day you refill it.
Set a Timer
For some people, proper hydration involves reprogramming the mind to develop better habits. Setting a phone or other timer for once an hour can really help – every time the timer goes off drink a small cup of water. You can adjust this technique depending on your specific needs.
You need proper mineral balance to stay hydrated. Many people find success adding unrefined, raw sea salt – this increases absorption of water and helps with hydration. It can also help with adrenal and thyroid function, which brings more natural energy.
Finally, one of the most important parts of staying hydrated over the summer involves avoiding beverages that dehydrate you. For many people, these are soft drinks, coffee and green tea – they are fine in moderation, but look to balance them with hydrating liquids.
