Don’t dry up this winter – Increase your water intake and stay hydrated

On cold days, a hot drink is blissful – but it is important to drink water and stay hydrated, even when the mercury drops.

Water is essential to consume every day to maintain a healthy balance. But, as winter approaches, it’s easy to forget about staying hydrated. It can be a very tricky time to ensure you are getting enough water when it’s the most important time to increase your water intake.

Most people tend to drink less water during the colder months because they don’t feel as thirsty. However, staying hydrated during winter is just as important as it is during the summer.

Here’s why increasing your water intake during winter is essential.

Avoid Dehydration!

Indoor heating is dehydrating

Indoor heating systems can dry out the air and cause dehydration. This can lead to dry skin, mouth, and other health problems. Drinking plenty of water can help to combat the effects of indoor heating and keep you hydrated.

Cold Weather

The drop in temperature can cause your body to lose more water than usual. This is because the body needs to work harder to maintain its core temperature. Also, when it’s cold outside, people tend to breathe through their mouths, which can lead to dehydration. Drinking water can help to replenish lost fluids and keep you hydrated.

Immune system boost

Drinking plenty of water can help to boost your immune system. During the winter months, your body is more susceptible to colds and flu. Water can help to flush out toxins and keep your body functioning properly, which can reduce your risk of getting sick.

Hydrated skin

Winter weather can be harsh on your skin, causing it to become dry and itchy. Drinking plenty of water will help to keep your skin hydrated, reducing the risk of dryness and cracking.

Curb the cravings

In winter, you are naturally intended to eat more and indulge in comfort foods. Drinking water can help to curb your appetite and prevent overeating. This can help you to maintain a healthy weight or avoid the extra winter kgs.

If plain water is just too bland, spice it up with some fruit. Add lemon, mint, berries or cucumber.

Your water does not need to be freezing. Room temperature works really well for hydration which also helps on a cold day.

Try your utmost best to increase your water intake during the colder months – even if you don’t feel thirsty.

Your body will thank you for it!
