Winter Hydration


Staying hydrated year round is important to good health but it can seem harder during the winter. Especially this time of year, it is harder to tell when your body has perspiration which leads to dehydration. Staying hydrated will help with a number of things that are winter related, such as helping with dry skin, boosting your immune system, and helping maintain a regular body temperature.

Some signs of dehydration are:

  • Dark urine

  • Headaches

  • Dry mouth, throat, lips, and/or eyes

  • Dry skin

  • Dizziness

  • Not producing enough urine

How to stay hydrated:

  • Get yourself a reusable water bottle that you can carry with you at all times to ensure you have enough water throughout the day

  • If you don't like water, try adding lemon or other fruits to your water to give it flavor

  • Replace pop or juice with water

  • Eating fruits and vegetables will add in extra hydration throughout the day
