As the cold weather creeps in and you replace shorts and flip flops with jeans and boots, it’s easy to feel like you aren’t as thirsty or that proper hydration is not as important. It makes sense to think that since you’re not sweating from every pore on your body you don’t need to drink as much. But actually for a lot of people it’s a lot easier to become dehydrated in the winter than it is in the summer. Most people tend to place their healthy water drinking ways on the back burner during the winter months and don’t drink their recommend dosage of 2/3 of their body weight in ounces. Proper hydration is so important year round. Don’t let go of your healthy summer water drinking habits!
Here are some great ways to make sure you are staying hydrated this Fall and Winter:
- Set a goal and set timers on your phone to go off throughout the day to make sure that you are on track to meet your goal. Just those little check in reminders will help you stay aware and on top of your water intake.
- Grab a water bottle when you’re off to run an errand and tell yourself it needs to be gone by the time you’re done.
- Believe it or not, they do make apps for that! Daily Water Tracker Reminder, Hydro Coach and WaterMinder are just some examples of apps to keep your hydration on track.
Did you know that proper hydration will actually help your body fight off illness as the cold weather months approach? It sure will. Being properly hydrated helps give your body the strength it needs to fight off bacteria and other infections. So if you don’t want to get sick – drink up!
Proper hydration will also ensure that you have healthy glowing skin all fall and winter long! – So if you want to avoid cracking and dull looking skin – drink up!
