Hydration Reminder - Applies to parents and kids!

Yes, it is heading towards getting cold outside again; however, that doesn't mean you can forget everything you know about hydration! 
Let's get into some Good Hydration Tips:

Practicing good hydration tips is vital whether you are in the backyard relaxing or at the park jogging. Paying attention to hydration lets you enjoy life without feeling fatigued and while you receive some water from foods such as fruits and vegetables, the reality is eighty percent of your hydration is from water as well as other liquids.
It is a bad idea to let your thirst guide you as to how much to drink. If you get thirsty then you are in fact already slightly dehydrated! The best thing to do is to outpace your thirst, so it is a good idea to keep a water bottle on hand at all times.

Eight glasses of water (about eight ounces each) should be the bare minimum you consume in a day, not the end point. Nine glasses for women and twelve for men is the best suggestion.

It is important to keep in mind that some drinks will hydrate more than others. Water is the best option for hydration. Caffeinated beverages are actually better than commonly thought but alcohol can actually dehydrate you so is best avoided, particularly in large quantities.
Steering clear of alcohol and always having a bottle of water on-hand are best practices.
Also, teach your kids that water is essential! 

Water helps digestion regulation. It helps keep skin looking good. It helps energize muscles.
It helps keep immune system stronger to fight sickness. Oh, the many roles of water.
