Drinking Water During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a scary, but awesome time for a family. Expectant mothers want and need to take care of their bodies – and thus, their babies – as much as possible, which means learning what foods to eat, what substances to avoid, and other tips and tricks to make it through the long nine months. Surprisingly, pregnant women and their doctors don’t often focus on the one thing that is really important, yet often goes under the radar: drinking water. Drinking water is essential for life, naturally, but it’s also extremely important for an expectant mother. Here’s why. Why Staying Hydrated Is So Important Your body can’t function properly without enough water, even if you’re not pregnant. It’s even more […]

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’s the One Thing You Need at a Tailgate? 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 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 […]

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.

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.
