National Hydration Day 2022: Tips to Meet Your Hydration Goals

Just in time for summer, it’s National Hydration Day!

Since 1993, National Hydration Day (June 23rd) has been recognized as a celebration of one of our most precious resources on earth - water. It also serves as a reminder that drinking filtered water regularly is critical for long-term health and feeling your best each day.

Why is Staying Hydrated so Important?

Water does more than just quench your thirst—it’s also critical to the functioning of your body and keeps skin looking healthy.

  • Helps you stay alert and energized

  • Maintains body temperature

  • Prevents headaches and helps with brain health

  • Keeps skin healthy by maintaining the moisture barrier

  • Flushes toxins from your body

  • Decreases water retention and helps digestive function

You know what they say – if you’re feeling thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. Only 45% of Americans proactively drink water throughout the day.1 That means 55% of Americans are subjecting themselves to chronic dehydration, and not giving their body adequate amounts of water often enough.

When Should You Drink Water?

Drinking water can be easy when you make it part of your daily routine. So, when should you drink water throughout the day?

  • First thing when you wake up; think of it as waking up the rest of your body with the H20 it needs!

  • Before, during and after meals

  • Before and after exercise

  • When you feel thirsty (you are already dehydrated at this point!)

  • When you feel tired or sluggish – or just need some extra motivation

Why Should You Drink Filtered Water?

While tap water is a convenient option, quality can vary widely depending on where you live. The contaminants found in tap water can be considerable, including:

  • Harmful chemicals known as PFOA/PFOS

  • Heavy metals Lead and Chromium

  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) like salts and organic matter

  • Chlorine and other chemicals used to purify tap water can also leave an unpleasant taste or smell

You want to invest in a reliable water filter device like the ZeroWater® 5-Stage Filtration System that filters PFOA/PFOS, TDS, Chlorine, heavy metals, and other contaminants. Plus, filtered water has a fresher and more clear taste.

6 Tips to Increase Your Water Intake

Meeting your hydration goals can make you feel a whole new person. Try these easy ways to build a hydration habit.

  1. Choose a reusable bottle – Carry a reusable water bottle with you everywhere you go and make a pledge to stop buying single-use plastic water bottles.

  2. Infuse with flavor – Try adding different flavors of fruit, such as sliced lemon, cucumber and mint leaves to create a refreshing base for your water.

  3. Eat your water – Water-rich foods like melon, celery, romaine lettuce, bell peppers, tomatoes and zucchini can help supplement hydration.

  4. Drink at regular periods – You can develop a habit of drinking water at specific times, like 30 minutes before exercising or first thing in the morning. Doing so will make remembering to drink water more of an “autopilot” process.

  5. Download an app or set alarms – If you need extra help remembering, set a reminder with an app or alarm on your phone.

  6. Find a buddy – Ask a friend to help hold you accountable for staying hydrated and celebrate when you meet your goals.
