National Hydration Day

National Hydration Day is June 23—and what better way to celebrate than to commit to staying hydrated? In this article, we’ll go over a brief history of this day (and why it’s important), as well as simple ways you can celebrate by staying hydrated. 

National Hydration Day

National Hydration Day was created in honor of late football coach Victor Hawkins. Hawkins was known for inventing a special hydrating mouthguard to help keep his players hydrated on the field. The company that continues to sell his invention, SafeTGard, announced the holiday after Hawkins’ passing in honor of his legacy. Too often people forget to take a water bottle on a long hike, or they reach for a soda to quench their thirst instead of water! This annual holiday is great for raising awareness of just how important water is to our overall health

Easy Ways to Stay Hydrated

Drinking water is SO important for our health, and for avoiding a lot of different health complications. But it’s not the easiest thing to do if you’ve never tried to do it intentionally before. Here are a few simple ways to stay hydrated. 

Remind Yourself

We have a lot on our minds, and if you aren’t in the habit of drinking water regularly, it’s easy to forget! Set a reminder on your phone, or put a sticky note on your desk that says “drink water!” There are also plenty of water bottles available that have time stamps on them, so you know how much you should be drinking each hour. There are even apps to remind you! 

Remind Others

Summer’s here in Alabama, and that means lots of outdoor activities. Make sure you’re not only bringing water for yourself during these outings, but for others as well! Make sure your kids have plenty of water to drink, as well as your friends, family, and pets. Everyone needs water to function  and—in the summer heat—staying hydrated is even more important. 

Make It Work For You

If you’re not an avid water drinker, it might taste pretty bland to you. Try adding in some sliced fruit, or get some flavored drops specifically designed for water—like MiO! Treat yourself to a fun and colorful water bottle, or give yourself some kind of reward for reaching your daily water intake goals. Find ways to make it fun, and the habit will develop!
