During the heat of summer, it’s more important than ever to stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water throughout a hot summer day ensures that you:
- Don’t get overheated
- Avoid headaches and fatigue
- Keep your energy levels up
- Replenish lost fluids (from sweating)
There are plenty of opportunities to drink more water while you’re out and about enjoying the outdoors this summer.
Top 10 Occasions to Hydrate More This Summer
Some great ways to hydrate are when you’re…
...at the pool
Bring a cooler filled with cans of unflavored seltzer water and a gallon-sized Ziploc bag of ice. Pack your pool tote with sunscreen, plastic cups, crazy straws, and a box of True Citrus Lemon Strawberry Fruit Infusions. Sip in poolside style all day long!
...relaxing on the patio
In a large pitcher, combine frozen strawberries, fresh basil, and a generous sprinkle of True Lemon. Fill to the top with water, and bring the pitcher out on the patio with you to share with friends.
In an insulated water bottle, make a True Citrus concentrate. Add 6 packets of True Lemon Wildberry Lemonade, then fill with water and shake well. When you’re at your campsite, add a splash of this homemade concentrate to plain water at dinnertime, or to your water bottle to keep you enticed to drink on a long hike.
Keep a few packets of Lemon Mint Fruit Infusions in your pocket or purse at all times. While out at a bar with friends, alternate alcoholic beverages with seltzer water mixed with a packet of Fruit Infusions. You’ll drink less alcohol, consume less empty calories, be more hydrated, and prevent the likelihood of a hangover the next day.
Easily increase your desire to sip on that sports bottle by adding a packet of True Lemon Original Lemonade to your water. Not only will drinking more water keep you hydrated throughout your workout, but water with True Lemonade is a much better option than sports drinks (which contain a lot of added sodium and sugar).
...traveling on vacation
Bring a large empty water bottle with you to the airport. After you pass through security and before you board your flight, fill up your water bottle and add a packet of True Lemon to keep sipping throughout the flight. Another added hydration trick? Ask for a cup of hot water when the drink cart comes around (rather than soda or juice), and add True Lemon as a satisfying way to hydrate naturally without any added sugar.
Keep a stash of True Limeade in your desk drawer at all times to add to your water. Set a calendar reminder to alert you every hour of the day to stand up from your desk, stretch, and drink some water.
Fill a large insulated water jug (preferably with a pour spout) with purified water and lots of ice. Add three packets of True Orange and mix well. Throughout the drive, use the bottle to refill your water bottle or plastic cup so that you aren’t tempted to buy sugary sodas at any gas station stops. True Orange will keep you tempted to reach for your water bottle and keep sipping.
...at the park
Open six plastic water bottles, and in each bottle add a packet of one of your favorite True Citrus products. Pop them in the freezer overnight. The next day when packing up for the park, use them as cooler ice packs. When they start to warm up and unfreeze, drink the refreshingly cold bottles of citrus-flavored goodness!
...at an outdoor festival
Since most festivals don’t let you bring in your own water, stash a few packets of True Lemon Raspberry Iced Tea in your bag or pocket. Opt to fill up a cup or bottle at a water station, and set a timer on your phone to go off in 30-minutes. Each time it goes off, drink 8 ounces of water, then re-set your timer. This is also a good reminder for reapplying sunscreen!
