Welcome to day 2 of my 3 days of giveaways for 2020!!
Incase you missed it, I did an IGTV video on Instagram explaining all of the amazing companies and small businesses that we are highlighting during these 3 days!
Each year you guys know how much I LOVE doing these. With 2020 being…..2020……it’s a little smaller this year but so amazing nonetheless.
Today I’d love to touch on hydrating….in STYLE.
If I’m being SO honest (which I always aim to be on social media of course!) I have recently been telling my husband how much more water I should be drinking. I just know.
I tend to drink a decent amount whenever I’m working out and once I’m home from working at the gym, but I know I could do better throughout the day and I know I FEEL better when I focus on drinking more water.
How much water do you need to drink?
My typical answer to this is “it depends”, which it does! The recommended base amount is around 64 ounces and The National Academy of Medicine suggests that men get 3.7 liters (125 ounces) of water each day and that women get 2.7 liters (91 ounces) of water.
If you are more active and sweating more, you would most likely need to be drinking more water to help replenish.
On top of it depends, you should also listen to your body. Most of the time when you’re feeling thirst, you’ve gone past a little point of needing hydration.
Whenever I was a Health Teacher back in the day, I used to teach my students that our bodies truly give us signs if we’re hydrated enough. If you look at your urine, it will give you a good indication of how hydrated you are.
Darker urine could mean that you’re a bit dehydrated and the lighter the urine is, the more hydrated you can be.
Keeping up with water throughout the day will host a TON of benefits as every cell in our body truly needs water in order to live.
Staying hydrated can help with healthy skin, joints, digestion, energy levels, cognitive & athletic performance in the gym and outside of the gym, & weight management.
To be honest, when it comes to drinking more water, if it’s CUTE I WILL DRINK MORE!!! I SWEAR! Anyone else feel the same!?
Insert HYDROJUG!! I love a good water bottle with a good straw and a convenient way to bring it with me all day…and how DANG CUTE ARE THESE!!
The HydroJug holds ½ gallon of water, has a wide-mouth opening, and an integrated handle for easy access, dishwasher safe and adorable!
They have a side pocket for your phone, optional straw you can order, and a strap for easy on-the-go hydration!
I have already been drinking more water within the few days of having my new HydroJugs and I look forward to filling them each day with the goal of drinking the whole thing.
HydroJug has a Code “powercakes10” for 10% off which would make for an awesome Christmas gift if you’re still trying to check someone off your list!
