It’s fall, and we could not be more excited because it is such a wonderful time of the year! It’s not quite as hot as summer, but it is still warm enough to get out and enjoy the majesty of a good ol’ autumn season. You need to stay hydrated by drinking water frequently and regularly, of course. But the great thing about fall, beyond trick-or-treating, watching football, or pigging out at the Thanksgiving dinner table, is enjoying the terrific flavors that pop up during the season. That includes your drinking water, by the way. Here are some ways you can add a little spice to your drinking water to celebrate this wonderful season by creating infused water. Cinnamon Apple […]

The Beauty and Health Benefits of Drinking Water in the Fall

drinking water

Fall is here, and that means it’s time for football, great Southern weather, and looking and feeling healthy and strong. Water, not surprisingly, has a lot to do with all of these. You need plenty of water while at a football game; Southern weather in the fall is still somewhat hot and humid; and water has a lot to do with how you look. You may not think the third one is that obvious, and maybe it isn’t. But it is true. Water is not just for your body’s health; it can also be for your body’s appearance, and drinking it in the fall means you can look and feel good after the summer has come and gone. Healthy, Glowing […]

Kick Off the School Year with Good Hydration Habits!

School’s back in session, and for those of you who have kids, it’s an exciting time of the year. Your kids are going to be very active this year, especially if they participate in sports or other extracurricular activities. More activity means a higher chance of becoming dehydrated, which can affect their energy levels and mood – thereby affecting their academic performance. No one wants their kids to underperform in school over something as basic as not drinking enough water. So, there’s no better time than the present to start the school year off right with good hydration habits. Get Kids in the Habit of Drinking Water You probably see your kids twice a day when school is in session: […]

Artificial Intelligence Can Protect Our Drinking Water

drinking water

Our drinking water is something we take for granted, but given how much we pollute and overdevelop our water sources, we shouldn’t. Water is expected to be the world’s most critical resource in the near future as more and more people want more and more of it. But in certain parts of the world, there may not be enough to go around. And even in countries like ours where there’s plenty of drinking water in most places, the quality may leave something to be desired. Researchers at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, think that artificial intelligence can help us save our water supply, though – and it’s pretty exciting for people like us who love water.

Waterslides Just Got a Lot More Awesome with Virtual Reality

At Water Way, we love all things to do with water. That naturally includes waterslides (who doesn’t love waterslides?). But as great as they are, some waterslides are getting an upgrade from the world of virtual reality. To find the first-ever VR waterslide, we have to travel to Germany, to the Galaxy Erding water park. The attraction in question: VRSlide, which lets its riders sit on a single-person inflatable tube while wearing a snazzy VR headset that can be submerged in a few meters of water without being damaged. The VR headset allows the rider to view animated scenes – anything from a cave tunnel to outer space and even a wintry wonderland – as they move at high speeds […]

The water tragedy in Flint, Michigan has been splashed all over the media over the past two years, as residents have had to deal with polluted tap water – a tragedy with no end in sight. It’s easy to take water for granted, especially considering the fact that your tap water may not be as clean as you think. It may not be a Flint-esque situation, but your county’s water supply is potentially unsafe, depending on where you live. Threats to Clean Drinking Water A new study by a water economist at the University of California, Irvine, analyzed water supplies on a county by county basis. While the author says most water in the U.S. is safe, the biggest risk […]

What Are the Best Times to Drink Water?

We all know that we should drink water regularly throughout the day. While it’s impossible to tell how much water each individual needs – studies show that it varies from person to person – it’s clear that without enough water, we feel groggy, tired, sluggish, and just plain bad. But when should we drink water? And does it matter? There actually is science to timing when you drink. As a rule, you should drink water: 30 minutes before each meal (it helps with digestion) During meals An hour after your meal (to help your body absorb the food nutrients) The day before working out strenuously 2-3 hours before exercising 30 minutes before exercising During exercise Within 30 minutes of exercising […]
