Staying Hydrated in the Winter Months

March 16, 2018

Everyone knows how important it is to stay hydrated and in the summer months its easier to notice when we need to drink water – but it’s just as important to maintain this going into the winter months.

According to a Healthy Living article, drinking water in the winter is crucial to a healthy lifestyle – water helps boost your immune system, helping ward off sickness in the peak cold and flu months. Additionally, water can increase your metabolism to get your beach body ready when the summer comes around again!

Because our body loses water the same during the summer and winter months, it’s important to maintain the same water intake during all twelve months of the year. Alberta winters also contribute to dry skin, and staying hydrated will make sure your skin doesn’t give in to the dry weather.

Staying hydrated contributes to an overall healthier lifestyle – maintain this year-long will help your health in the long term.
