Hi babes! I hope you all had a wonderful and long holiday weekend. I spent mine exploring Southern California, both in LA and San Diego. Before traveling to San Diego to meet up with some friends for the fourth, my boyfriend and I began our long weekend with a drive in the mountains of Los Angeles (or should we say hills… I can say that because I’m from Colorado). I didn’t pack much with me, besides my purse and some hydration essentials.
When I am at work at my desk all day, I find it easier to stay hydrated since you can easily refill and go to the bathroom as you please. On the weekends or for long trips, however, I find it difficult to stay hydrated all day. But it is really, really important to prevent headaches, dry hair, dehydration (obviously), heat exhaustion, early wrinkles and a multitude of other health problems. That’s why I partnered with CVS and The Coca-Cola Company to share some tips to stay hydrated this summer (and look cute doing it I might add). Be sure to read these tips and tricks from other bloggers for summer hydration as well!
How I stay hydrated during the summer:
1. Pack more than you think you need- head to your local CVS for a quick pick up of your favorite beverages, usually at least two drinks per person for an afternoon. Also, you never know when you will get a chance to refill!
2. Hydrate with water first- my first choice for staying hydrated is water. Without any added sugar or calories, it is the perfect natural thirst quencher. smartwater even has some added electrolytes, so it’s my go-to.
3. Tea in the afternoon- I like to drink water all morning then switch to tea to beat that afternoon slump with a little caffeine. Honest Tea has some great, healthy choices (just choose ones without all the added sugar- I like the Honey Green Tea as shown above).
