Today is National Hydration Day!

National Hydration Day 

 

With the summer having just begun, it is important to consider the importance of staying properly hydrated throughout the season. National Hydration Day was created for this very reason and occurs annually on the 23rd of June. Staying well hydrated is widely believed to be able to help improve your mental clarity and concentration, reduce fatigue, and keep your skin looking youthful and radiant. Below, we will discuss a few more standout benefits of staying properly hydrated:  

 

Hydration will aid in weight loss 

Drinking water can help occupy the stomach and create the sensation that one is now full and no longer in need of food. This will help disregard hunger cravings and reduce calorie consumption.  

 

Hydration helps maintain blood pressure 

Proper hydration helps regulate our fluid balance overall, which will result in healthy blood pressure levels. When dehydrated, our blood vessels constrict. When blood vessels are constricted, there is a higher risk of increased blood pressure and stroke.

 

Hydration effects both physical and mental health 

Proper hydration will aid in improving physical and mental health by helping provide stronger resistance to stress as well as enabling better concentration levels. Additionally, hydration is effective in improving sleep quality and clarity of thought. 

 

How to observe  

The following are recommended activities for National Hydration Day, as well as the upcoming weekend:  . 

  • Remember that there are other fluids besides water that are beneficial to health and overall hydration. Some of these fluids include but are not limited to decaffeinated teas, flavored or sparkling waters, and vegetable juices.  
  • Use personal platforms to spread awareness, information, and positivity about hydration. 
  • Set personal goals, reminders, and challenges to drink certain amounts of water on a daily basis, encourage those around you such as young children to do the same. You can even download an app to help track your water consumption!

We hope engaging in such activities and the ability to set goals for yourself and inspire those around you will lead to a successful National Hydration Day! Hydration is extremely important in the lives and health of children, and the earlier they begin giving priority to it, the healthier the life they will lead.
