Okay, well technically speaking, all the time is water time when we’re talking about drinking it! On Sunday I shared a tip on how to make lemon ice cubes for your water, but whether or not you do that or just drink water with regular ice, it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough of the stuff! And this goes for everyone, not just fellow chronic pain/illness warriors!
As you can see, my water bottle is attached to my hiking backpack!
With the increased heat in the summer, it’s especially important to make sure we are rehydrating so that we don’t get dehydrated. If you’re going for a walk, run, hike, etc. take a water bottle with you. If you’re one of us lucky? people that is going in to work, having a water bottle with you there as well is a good idea. I know personally I’ve found that just by having to wear a mask all day I need more water than I did before or my throat will get very dry.
Meet Water, a trusted companion.
How do you know if you’re getting enough water? The simplest way is the pee test. Literally just looking at the color of your urine. If it’s dark in color, you’re definitely not getting enough water! If it’s clear, then you’re drinking too much. The ideal is to have a light yellow but see through color. If you’ve got it, then you’re on the right track. Make sure you’re doing yourself a favour by making sure you’re on track with your water intake. Your health is worth it!
