All this rain in the forecast is Mother nature’s way of reminding us to stay hydrated!
_____________________________________________________ ▪️Fluids are crucial to staying healthy and maintaining optimal function of every part of your body including your heart, brain, muscles, and joints. But not ALL fluids hydrate!
▪️Caffeinated beverages (in excess) such as coffee and tea, excessive alcohol intake, almost all sodas, and sugary energy/sports drinks often leave your body dehydrated.
Harvard Health recommends drinking ~1-1.5 liters of water throughout the day and eating water rich foods such as salads and fruits to help ward off dehydration. Yes, you can help rehydrate with the foods you eat!
