Water is a vital element for good health. Beat the heat with these tips for staying hydrated throughout the summer.

  • Start the day with a healthy breakfast that includes plenty of non-alcoholic beverages. If you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors, don’t forget to put on sunscreen.
  • Keep a cooler in your car to carry water and nutritional snacks like fresh fruit. Granola bars and fruit leather are also¬†alternatives to candy, chips and other less healthy items.
  • If you’re hiking or involved in other activities where a cooler is inconvenient, try a Camelbak, a backpack that holds a reservoir of water for instant hydration.
  • Water isn’t restricted to fluid sources alone. Fruits like watermelon and oranges have a high water content and they taste delicious. Be sure to include plenty of fresh fruit if you’re planning a picnic.
