What's the Best Time of Day to Hydrate?

WHAT'S THE BEST TIME OF DAY TO HYDRATE?

A. Carling

INTERNAL WELLNESS

While we should all be drinking water throughout the day, there are times where the intake of water can really help us on our wellness journey.

WHEN SHOULD YOU HYDRATE?

FIRST THING IN THE MORNING

This really primes the body and gets us ready for the day, nourishing the organ systems and helping to lubricate the joints. Think of how many hours you sleep during the night. If you’ve made no trips to the kitchen, that's how long you've gone WITHOUT water so drink-up! The benefits of this practice are numerous!

I find it helpful to keep my water bottle next to my bed or on the nightstand prior to going to bed for easy access in the morning.

WATER BEFORE MEALS

Not only does this help you feel more full (aiding in weight-management), but it also aids in digestion.

PRIOR TO WORKING OUT/ DURING WORK OUT/ AFTER WORKING OUT

Some might say this is a “no-brainer”, but it's often forgotten in the pursuit of our fitness goals. Keep in mind that water helps to lubricate our joints and organ systems. The heart and the lungs rely on water to perform their jobs. Water helps to keep the blood volume in balance (blood is approx. 90% water), allowing the heart to pump efficiently as we train. The lungs require lubrication for expansion and contraction as we breathe, especially when working out, as the demand we put on them is increased.  

Post workout, be sure to drink adequate amounts of water to replace fluid loss due to perspiration, and to regulate body temperature.

WHEN WE ARE SICK

Being sick is not pleasant for anyone! Being dehydrated may exacerbate the symptoms of even the most minor ailments. Water helps to break up mucus, and keep it flowing along, out of our bodies. Having a fever may lead to sweating, water helps to replace the fluid that is lost. As discussed in the previous post, water helps to flush out toxins from the body and helps to regulate our temperature.

Climate, activity level, body size and diet, all have a bearing on our hydration needs, find your balance. Be mindful of your body, aim to be proactive in your approach to hydration.      

Key Tip: Hydration is more essential than ever before as we endure the COVID 19 pandemic. DRINK UP!

AND TO RECAP. DRINK WATER:

First thing in the Morning.

Before Meals.

Prior to Working Out/ During Work Out/ After Working Out.

When We are Sick.

YEEESSSSS

I'm honestly a little sad because I want to order /everything!/ Lol I ordered this at the perfect time. The pine tar soap cleared up the little whiteheads I'd get in the areas under my mouth. They've shrunk so much. I felt so naked when my little soap ran out! It's crazy how you can really feel that this is an all natural soap. Even if the soap you'd normally use on your face isn't stripping, it's just such a nice feeling to NOT get that chemical feel on your skin when you wash your face. The smell is divine. With any other facial cleanser, I'd still have somehow have dirt on my face the next morning. Not with the pine tar soap! :) I wake up and my skin still feels and is sooo clean. Donata is right, older scars/acne marks will of course take longer to fade. They are still slowly fading though, and the more recent ones I have are fading quicker. It is amazing!!!! I just ordered a full sized soap and another scar butter. <3 I hope to try one of the blended soaps and scrubs soon :) I've yet to try any products on my back acne and booty acne, but the changes on my face have been beautiful <3

Love that sea Moss

The sea moss was packaged nice and the quality is awesome I’m enjoying making my own gel and i thank the owner for having a company that supplies great high quality products I do believe in her commitment to excellence. Thank you Beautiful!
