Surviving the Heat

July, August and September are the hottest months of the year, so it’s a must to stay hydrated to keep our internal body temperatures down.

I know, I know not everyone likes to drink “water” all day long, so here are some great innovative ideas to keep your body’s cooled this summer:

Popsicles made out of jello! So easy and inexpensive to make at home. Just follow directions on box and add whatever makes you happy and pour in to popsicle trays and voila!

Infused Water! Just add any fruit or vegetable or herb of choice to a pitcher of water for a refreshing taste! Check out these samples….And so fun to create your own combinations of flavors to suit your taste buds! Deliciously yummy!

 

What about eating fresh fruit kabobs to satisfy your water needs? All these fruits contain high amounts of water that will really help quench your thirst… Grapes, oranges, pineapple, watermelon, honeydew, peaches, berries, plums and more!!!! Plus you’ll be getting that extra bang of vitamins and minerals that are found in all these fruits and herbs! 

 

 

Here are some of the most common signs and symptoms of dehydration:

  • fatigue and/or dizziness
  • foggy thinking and poor concentration
  • mood swings
  • muscle cramps
  • chills
  • back or joint aches
  • dull, dry skin and/or pronounced wrinkles (sorry people!)
  • constipation
  • infrequent urination, dark concentrated urine (think the color of apple juice)
  • headaches
  • bad breath
  • sugar cravings!
