Share This Post

Schools are letting out and summer vacation is almost here. It's everyone's favorite time of year with cheer camps starting, vacation, sweet treats and sunshine – there's so much to love about summer! 

With so much fun to be had each day, it's hard to know if you're drinking enough water.

Here are a few easy tips to help you stay hydrated in the summer heat!

1. Set a goal and achieve it

As athletes, we are naturally driven to accomplish our goals. If you set a goal for 2 liters a day, then don't stop until you have achieved it! Keep a water jug near you to always sip on and stay hydrated.

2. DIY Water Bottle

Make drinking water fun! Whether it's a customized water jug for camp or a bedazzled Starbucks cup, find something you enjoy carrying around and drink up!

5. Use a silicone straw

Using a straw just makes drinking water more fun and you're saving the planet by using less plastic!

6. Drink a glass before every meal

Drinking a glass of water before every meal will keep you hydrated all day long and help curb your appetite so you become full faster.
