hydThe temperature is heating up outside. It's essential to stay hydrated all year, but more so in the late spring and early summer when temperatures are rising. Staying hydrated does not have to be a time-consuming process. It is easy to incorporate water into your daily activities. Drinking fluids is critical to being healthy and helps to maintain the necessary functions of the human body. Every cell and organ in your body requires water to function. You can improve your overall health, and be on the path to wellness by drinking water and staying hydrated. Below, we have included five easy ways to stay hydrated this summer.

Keep a bottle of water

Carrying a reusable water bottle with you ensures that you that will have access to water. When the bottle is empty, simply refill it and take a sip to stay hydrated.

Eat water-rich foods

According to Nutrition News, food choices can account for 20 percent of your daily fluid intake. Many fruits and vegetables contain large amounts of water. Watermelons, strawberries, and tomatoes are just a few examples of foods rich in water. Luckily, these fruits are also in season during the summer and should not be too difficult to find in your local supermarket.

Opt for water at restaurants

You’ll have plenty of refreshment options available at restaurants. Choose water. Soft drinks and alcohol do a poor job hydrating your body. Drinking alcohol is known to lead to dehydration.

Hydrate with a frozen dessert

Eating frozen desserts, like homemade popsicles that blend fruit and water, are great ways to stay hydrated. You could also eat frozen desserts such as pudding and jello.

When you’re feeling hungry, drink water

Dehydration and thirst can sometimes be confused with hunger. Drinking water can help you feel full and keep you from overeating later.

These are only a few ways to stay hydrated during the summer and incorporate water into your day! Be creative and find more ways to stay hydrated this summer!

Memorial Day 2019MD
Memorial Day is fast approaching, and our community has begun preparations for celebrations honoring the lives lost during times of war. Each national holiday has a history, and it is essential to understand that history to preserve its purpose.

Memorial Day used to be known as “Decoration Day.” In 1866, one year after the Civil War ended, communities would join together to decorate the graves of the fallen with flowers. Each community designated their day of remembrance. After World War 1, Decoration Day became Memorial Day to include fallen soldiers in every American War.

In 1971, Memorial Day became a national holiday that is celebrated on the last Monday of May. U.S. Congress also established a National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. (local time) for all Americans to pause in an act of national unity for one minute.

On Memorial Day, as you pay tribute to the many lives lost during battle, please join us for a moment of silence at 3 p.m.

In observance of Memorial Day, Columbus Water Works’ offices will be closed on Monday, May 27, 2019. Emergency Crews will be available, if you have a leak or other water-related emergency, please call 706-649-3400.
