Sip N’ Soak

AdrianneHo_PoloSportBeachSoaking in the sun at the beach is the perfect way to spend a hot Summer day. However, you can easily become dehydrated. Proper hydration becomes even more important when engaging in physical activity in high temperatures. The more your body sweats under these conditions, the more fluid you will need to replace. When working out in hot temperatures your body can lose up to 2 to 3 liters of water an hour!

Dehydration can not only effect muscle reaction time but you can also experience dizziness, cramping, and loss of mental focus. During dehydration your body tissues will heal slower and your muscles will take longer to recover from a workout. The easiest way to remember to stay hydrated is to invest in a reusable water bottle you can always keep handy! You can refill the bottle as often as you need to and even infuse the water with your favorite fruits and veggies ranging from lemons, to berries to cucumbers! This allows you to enjoy all the delicious flavored water you want all summer long, without the added calories from other sweet drinks! 🙂

Keep Ya Head Up

AdrianneHo_TupacShakur-6Staying properly hydrated not only flushes out toxins from the body and increases your energy levels, but it also helps you look your best. Drinking enough water helps prevent and lessen dark eye circles, combats acne, and keeps skin from getting dull and dry. It’s recommended that we drink about 8 (8 oz.) glasses of water a day. Depending on how physically active you are that number can increase. Thirst is your body’s way of telling you that it’s been dehydrated for a long time. It’s good keep a bottle or water filter near so you’ll never have to reach that point.

Winter Water

AdrianneHo_SupremeUndefeated_2Being prepared during the cold winter months means more than just adding layers to your wardrobe; it means increasing the amount of fluids you’re drinking daily. That’s because the air outside becomes much drier when the temperature drops and winds increase. To make matters worse indoor heating sucks moisture out of the air inside. So to avoid dehydration increase your daily amount of water consumption to stay hydrated all year around.

Smart Water

AdrianneHo_BlueTechPack_13Every time you sweat you expend water from your body. That’s why it’s so important to rehydrate after a workout and properly hydrate throughout the day. A good way to calculate how much water to drink is the following…

You need a half ounce of fluid per day for every pound of body weight.
Divide that number by 8 to get that number in cups.
For example if you weigh 120lbs, you need to drink 60 oz. of fluid, which is 7.5 cups for the day.

Now that’s called smart water!
