Hydration Series Take-Aways
What can you do to stay hydrated during the summer heat?
These are the 3 easiest tips to achieve and maintain optimal hydration:
1. Drink with the goal of optimal/maximum absorption in mind:
- Drink 8-16 oz of water + sea salt and lemon upon waking up. Think of this as a “pre-day” gut soak
- Drink 6-8oz of water before every meal
2. Eat your water
- Foods with high water content can be more effective in hydration due to the “gel water”.
- Examples are green/plant-rich smoothies, chia seeds, cucumbers, lemons, coconut water, pomegranate juice, and many, many more!
- Any variation of movement can help deliver more water to your tissues, allowing everything to slide and glide better.
