Tips for Staying Hydrated

Tips for Staying HydratedStructured water drip

  1. Start each day with a glass of water (no ice). Drink it before you have coffee, tea or juice. It will help replace fluids lost overnight and get your hydration efforts off to a good start. Also fill a water bottle you can take with you in the car or keep with you and refill during the workday.
  2. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables throughout your day. They are brimming with water and include the minerals that help your body absorb and use it properly.
  3. Establish regular water breaks, if possible. Tailor your drinking to meet your needs. For instance, drink an extra glass of water if you worked out or didn’t squeeze enough fruits and vegetables into your day.
  4. Substitute structured water and raw vegetable juices for soda and fruit juice. While it’s true that all beverages count toward your daily tally, the sugar in regular soda and fruit juice, as well as the chemicals in diet versions, can trigger a host of unwanted reactions in the body, including blood-sugar spikes.
  5. Install a Structured Water unit in your home and use a portable unit at the office. Resort to bottled water when you must, but beware of the drawbacks: It’s expensive and environmentally wasteful, the plastic contains harmful chemicals that can leach into the water, and there are no guarantees that bottled water is any better for you than the water flowing from the tap.
  6. Cook with high-quality sea salt or Himalayan salt or other  These salts are rich in trace minerals, which are key to cell health and hydration.
