New Year Health Kick - Staying Hydrated with Thermos Water Bottles
Happy New Year!
January is typically the time when a lot of people focus on their health after enjoying indulging in the festivities. One simple and effective way to be healthier is to stay hydrated.
Our bodies are two-thirds water so it’s important to stay well hydrated! Keeping our bodies topped up is good for:
- Your Heart
- Temperature control
- Your brain to work well
How Much Should I be Drinking?
On average you should be aiming to drink between 6-8 glasses of water and other liquids each day to replace normal water loss. Water, lower-fat milk and sugar-free drinks (including tea and coffee you’ll be glad to know!) all count.
Five Tips To Help You Drink More
Here are some helpful tips to get you drinking more:
- Set yourself a goal. For example, I’m going to drink three fills of my hydration bottle each day.
- Drink one glass of water before each meal.
- Always have a reusable bottle with you so you can fill it up wherever you are.
- Set reminders on your phone or smartwatch. Sometimes we get so busy, we forget to drink!
- Drink a glass of water when you wake up and one before you go to bed.
