Drink Up: The Importance of Hydration While Traveling

In this article, we’ll discuss the importance of staying hydrated and how to assess your hydration level. We’ll also look at the challenges of staying hydrated while you’re on the road (or in the sky) and provide tips on how to stay hydrated while traveling.
The Importance of Staying Hydrated
The human body is roughly 60% water, and staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining optimal health. Without water, you can only survive for about three days. Many bodily processes depend on water, including maintaining healthy temperature regulation, supporting healthy joints, and transporting nutrients to cells throughout the body.
The Challenges of Staying Hydrated While Traveling
When you’re away from home, staying hydrated can be challenging. Access to clean water may be limited, and you may not be able to find places to fill your reusable bottle as frequently as you’d like. Additionally, the stress of travel can actually cause dehydration by increasing cortisol levels, the body’s stress hormone. Stress can cause you to sweat more, breathe faster and increase your heart rate, all of which increase the amount of fluid you lose. Airplanes can also dehydrate you. The air inside the cabin is dry, and the low air pressure at high altitudes can increase the rate at which your body loses fluids.
Tips for Staying Hydrated While Traveling
Bring a reusable water bottle: Bringing a reusable water bottle with you can help you stay hydrated while on the go. You can fill it up at water fountains, restaurants, or cafes.
Pack Pureboost: Pureboost is a great option for staying hydrated while traveling. It’s easy to pack and can be mixed with water for an energizing, hydrating drink full of vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes.
Avoid alcohol: Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it can cause you to lose more fluid than you take in. Avoiding these beverages or limiting your intake can help you stay hydrated.
Eat hydrating foods: Some foods are more hydrating than others. Watermelon, cucumber, strawberries, and lettuce are all high in water content and can help you stay hydrated.
Set reminders: With so many things on your mind while traveling, it’s easy to forget to drink enough water. Setting reminders on your phone can help you stay on track.
