Fall is a fabulous time of the year. The cool air starts creeping in, the leaves change, displaying a brilliant landscape of color and there are so many great Fall activities to partake in. One thing we might not associate with the Fall is an increased risk of dehydration. This time of year, surprisingly, brings with it the driest weather that most of us associate with winter.
With the cooler weather, keeping up with drinking water might not be top of mind and this can lead to some serious consequences. We all know that dehydration can cause fatigue, headaches, and can impair many important functions of our bodies. Dehydration can also inhibit our ability to fight off illness. Germs and bacteria spread more easily in the cooler weather, making us more likely to get sick if we are not staying hydrated.
Another reason to stay hydrated is that the cool, dry air can cause your skin to dry out and chap. By drinking water, you can keep your skin healthier and there is less of a chance that it will become itchy and flaky. This does not sound appealing especially when you have been looking forward to sweater weather.
During the Fall we need to be more deliberate and proactive when it comes to our hydration. This can be a challenge, but we have put together some tips to help:
Even though it might be time to pack away that swimsuit, it’s not time to pack away that water bottle. Cooler weather doesn’t mean that you should stop drinking water. To stay healthy, happy, and hydrated, keep that water bottle filled and get creative with your diet.
With temperatures dipping as we approach Fall, there is no better time than now to start thinking about ways to stay hydrated. IV hydration is a great option to add to your regimen to make sure that you stay on top of your fluid intake.
