This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and DripDrop®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DrinkDripDrop #DripDropHydrates http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV.
When you burn the candle at both ends, Ive discovered you really ought to drink more water to put out the fire! Staying hydrated can make the difference between being able to function with focus and plowing through the day in a haze.
Between family, freelance work and this blog, my days are frequently long. To go the distance, this year Im making more healthy food choices and Im trying to drink more water. Im doing moderate exercise and Im attempting to get to bed a little earlier (thats still my greatest quest!). Downing a glass of water should be one of the easiest things to dobut I dont always remember to keep drinking. I know Im not the only one with this challenge because lots of people (millions, according to one report I read) end up in the hospital every year because of dehydration. Our bodies are 60% water so drinking enough is really a big deal.
During a recent shopping excursion I ran into the local CVS and discovered a new product in the baby aisle. Its called DripDrop. It might be my new best friend. Its a powder (FDA approved) that hydrates 34% more effectively than plain water. It has 2-3 times more electrolytes than sport drinks and none of the caffeine or stimulants that the energy drinks usually contain. Its considered safe for kids over a year old, adults and seniors. The lemon or berry flavors come in convenient packets so you can easily add it to a glass of water. Ive found you can add it to your water bottle and its good for about 6 hoursor 24 hours if you keep it refrigerated.
I am convinced that most of us would benefit from drinking more water. Want to establish the habit?
