How Drinking Water Helps Power Your Brain

brain water

Our bodies depend on water. Besides the fact that our bodies are mostly made of water, our bodies need water for a wide variety of purposes. In short, if we don’t drink enough, we cannot perform at the levels we want to reach. That especially goes for that big mass of gray matter in your head. Water is crucial for mental health. Without proper hydration, you’ll think – and feel – worse than before. Your Brain Without Water Of course, if you don’t drink any water, you’ll die. What we’re talking about here is being perpetually dehydrated like 75% of Americans. When you’re not drinking enough, your brain’s functions are impacted. How? Well, without enough water, you will: Feel sluggish […]

What’s the One Thing You Need at a Tailgate? Water!

drinking water

Tailgating in the fall during football season is a time-honored tradition – a ritual, even. It’s as important in the South as anything else. A lot goes into creating the best tailgate experience, especially when it comes to what you should bring. You’ll need a grill or some way to make food; your beverage of choice; folding chairs; maybe a TV; music; a football to toss around; cornhole; and some kind of shade. You know what you’re missing? One, really important thing: water. That’s right – you should make sure you have plenty of water on hand when you tailgate. No One Wants to Watch Football While Dehydrated Dehydration will ruin your football-watching experience. If you’ve ever been outside in […]

Going Hiking? Take One of These Canteens With You

Prime hiking season in Alabama runs from August through the end of the year. (It doesn’t start getting uncomfortably cold until January, usually.) That gives you plenty of time to hit the trails and hike to your heart’s content. Just make sure you take lots of water with you. Staying hydrated is very important when you’re outside and exerting yourself. If you don’t bring water, you’ll quickly wish you had. As any Boy Scout can attest, there’s no better way to bring water along than a trusty canteen. Sure, you can bring a plastic water bottle, but what’s the fun in that? You need something simple, yet functional, that is rugged enough to endure the wilds (i.e. it won’t shatter […]

What Are the Best Times to Drink Water?

drinking water

Drinking water is really, really important. You will die without it, but even without going to that extreme, not drinking enough water will cause headaches, stress, fatigue, dizziness, fogginess, and other nasty side-effects of dehydration. It’s not just about how much you drink, but when you drink water. You can turbocharge your body’s hydration by drinking water at the right time. Drink Water First Thing in the Morning When you get up, get into the habit of drinking water. Why? It’s like driving your car in the cold. When the car has been sitting outside in cold weather all night, and you put it in gear and get on the road before the engine warms up, you are putting your […]

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 […]

School’s back in session, and for those of you who have kids, it’s an exciting time of the year.

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. One Leading […]

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 […]
