How To Stay Hydrated

 

Kangen Water - Change your water, change your life!

How Do You Stay Hydrated?

You’ve no doubt heard that proper hydration is the key to sustaining a healthy body. When was the last time you thought about the way in which you hydrate on an average basis?

DrinksThe Centers for Disease Control reports that for many people, being thirsty means grabbing sugary sodas, caffeinated drinks and other calorie-laden beverages on the go. Over time, this can lead to a variety of problems, including trouble with shedding unwanted pounds. What you drink has just as much effect on your overall wellness as what you eat.1

Here’s just a sample of the calories found in the common beverages2 that many consumers drink annually:

Type of Beverage Calories in 12 ounces Calories in 20 ounces
Fruit punch 192 320
100% apple juice 192 300
100% orange juice 168 280
Lemonade 168 280
Regular lemon/lime soda 148 247
Regular cola 136 227
Sweetened lemon iced tea 135 225
Tonic water 124 207
Regular ginger ale 124 207
Sports drink 99 165
Fitness water 18 36
Unsweetened iced tea 2 3
Coffee (no sugar/cream) 5 7
Diet soda (with aspartame) 0* 0*
Carbonated water (unsweetened) 0 0
Water 0 0
*Some diet soft drinks can contain a small number of calories that are not listed on the nutrition facts label.

 

As you can see, water has zero calories, with no added sugars or caffeine. So why do many consumers allow sodas and coffee to be their primary source of nourishment? Clean healthy water IS the best choice for optimal hydration.

Saving Tip For Today

ipad-mini-concept

Extend the Life Of Your Smartphone Or Tablet Battery.

1. Protect your device from temperatures over 95 degrees (35 degrees Celsius ). Those temperatures can damage battery capacity.

2. Shut down location-tracking apps when not using them. 

3. Turn off the function that refreshes apps in the background.

4. Don’t turn it off – It will use more juice powering up that it will quietly napping

5.  Keep the ports where your battery plugs into your device clean.

6. Turn off Wi-Fi when not in use. Wi-Fi gobbles a lot of power on all devices because it’s always looking for a signal.

7. Keep the screen as dim as you can stand it

8. Extend the refresh time: Set your email to get new messages every 15 minutes (or even longer) rather than as soon as they arrive on the server

9. Do some digging. Look for apps like iOptimizer or Battery Graph that help you monitor your battery use.

10.  For optimum performance, “reboot” your battery whenever you can by waiting to charge until the battery is down to about 10 percent. Then, fill ’er up to 100 percent. Try to avoid overcharging it except for newer devices, which is recommended.

11. Have a tablet? Drain its battery regularly. It appreciates the exercise.

Dangers Of Fruit Drinks

I know we always think of fruit drinks as being very healthy for us. Well they are if you basically pick them from the tree or vine, pop them in a juicer and then drink up. As most nutritionists will tell you that the vitamins decrease rapidly once a fruit or vegetable has been picked. Carrots are a good example. The minute you juice carrots or for that matter any fruit the vitamin C will deteriorate rapidly.
When we buy fruit juice it really is at a state where nutritionally it is pretty barren. I use it, especially orange juice, as a carrier for my Spirulina, blueberry and banana drink or another drink for digestion that my husband calls the ‘Sawdust’ drink (Napolina).
What we are drinking is a lot of sugar in the form of fructose which is not that healthy for us and a lot of empty calories.

Here is an info-graphic detail of what I am talking about. I found it quite enlightening and I am sure you will be made aware of some facts and figures that may change the way you look at the fruit juices we buy.
Enjoy.
