Join the Hydration Movement!

Special thanks to Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water for sponsoring today’s post.

Continuing in the footsteps of my mother's pure wisdom, I encourage my children to drink plenty of water! In our house - water is a big deal! It is our go-to drink during these humid Summer days. Whether we're headed for the playground, state park or enjoying an afternoon in the backyard - we have our bottles of water close by!

Fun Hydration Facts:

- Did you know that water helps your body keep your temperature normal and transport nutrients?

- Ever notice how lifeless a house plant looks when you forget to water it? Just a little water and it seems to perk back up. Water is just as essential for our bodies because it is in every cell, tissue, and organ in your body. That's why getting enough water every day is important for your health.

- If you're outside in hot weather for most of the day or doing vigorous physical activity, you'll need to make an effort to drink more fluids.

- Water is vital for maintaining body functions and is essential for health.

- Drinking water is a simple way to keep well hydrated.

- Good hydration is important for the whole body to function properly.

- To help you stay properly hydrated during prolonged physical activity, make sure you drink fluid before, during and after the activity.

Hydration Tips:

- Carry a water bottle for easy access when you are at work or running errands.

- Choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages. This tip can also help with calorie intake management. Substituting water for one 20-ounce sugar-sweetened soda will save you about 240 calories.

- Choose water instead of other beverages when eating out.

- Give your water a little pizzazz by adding a wedge of lime or lemon. This may improve the taste, and you just might drink more water than you usually do.
