We’re still battling the summer heat and it’s crucial that you keep your body hydrated. However, as fall creeps in over the next few months and temperatures drop, winter will be here before we know it. Here are five reasons it’s just as essential to stay hydrated in colder weather as it is right now.
You May Not Know You’re Dehydrated
Throughout the summer it’s easy to tell when you’re losing water because you sweat. In the winter, the signs of dehydration are a little less obvious. During the winter months the air is much drier, leading to dehydration from simply breathing. It’s imperative to remember to drink water in the winter even though you may not be thirsty.
Luckily the HidrateSpark App recommends a hydration goal based on height, weight, weather, activity, and much more. So, regardless of what type of climate you live in, the HidrateSpark App can create a unique hydration goal just for you.
Boost Your Immune System
The winter months are synonymous with cold and flu season. Staying hydrated throughout the winter will keep your immune system in shape. Although there are many ways to stay hydrated, drinking the right amount of water for your body will help to boost your immune system and keep you healthy.
You’ll Have More Energy
Do you get tired in the afternoons? Chances are it’s because you’re not drinking enough water throughout the day. In the afternoons, you tend to get dehydrated, so keep your energy up all day by consistently drinking water.
Fight Off Those Extra Holiday Pounds
Have you ever noticed you gain weight in the winter? Well, it happens to everyone. When the weather is cooler, most people crave comfort food, which is not always the healthiest choice. Drinking more water will help keep you full and less likely to eat extra helpings of sweet treats and holiday food. Proper hydration can help you maintain a healthier weight during the winter months.
The dry winter air can cause your skin to become dry and chapped. Proper hydration will keep your skin smooth, so you won’t have to deal with uncomfortable dry skin. By drinking water, you’ll enjoy the soft, smooth skin you’re used to in the summer.Even though you’re still sweating through the heat of summer, fall will be here soon, along with cooler temps. So keep your summer hydration going through winter, and you’ll be happier and healthier. HidrateSpark smart water bottles make it easy to stay hydrated all year.
