Did you know that drinking water can enhance your mood, memory and metabolism?
Water also helps control your body temperature, cushion your joints, and avoid headaches and fatigue. It’s an essential nutrient that supports your health and well-being.
As you power through your New Year’s resolutions, we’ve got five tips to help you stay hydrated and feel better in 2024.
Start your day with a glass of water. This will help you wake up, flush out toxins and hydrate your cells. You can also add lemon, cucumber or mint to your water for some extra flavor and benefits. A good suggestion? Dasani or smartwater.
Carry a recyclable water bottle. Carrying around a Dasani, smartwater or a regular water bottle with you will remind you to drink more water throughout the day. At Coca-Cola Consolidated, our bottles are made to be remade so once you’ve finished your drink, recycle the bottle so it can be remade into a new one.
Drink water before, during and after meals. This will help you feel fuller, digest your food, absorb nutrients and avoid cravings. Aim for at least one glass of water with each meal, even more if you are eating spicy, salty or fried foods.
Set reminders and track your intake. To avoid forgetting to drink water, you can set reminders on your phone, computer or smartwatch. You can also use apps or trackers to monitor how much water you are drinking and how it affects your mood, energy and health.
If exercising or in the heat, also replenish with electrolytes. Electrolytes, such as sodium, calcium and potassium, are essential minerals (and enable your body to function properly. BODYARMOR, BODYARMOR LYTE and Powerade are examples of drinks that can make staying hydrated easier – and provide your body with the electrolytes it needs.
