National Hydration Day
To maintain the water balance that is necessary for well-being, on June 23, residents of the United States celebrate National Hydration Day. When leaving home on a hot summer day, take a bottle of clean drinking water with you.
The origin of this national day is connected with the game of football. The professional coach of the Victor Hawkins team created a special mouth guard to maintain water balance. Its use allowed the players to save energy and work actively on the field during the match. After the inventor’s death, the guard went on sale and became available to the public. The holiday was established in 2016.
In order to avoid a lack of water in the body, a person should consume 2 liters of clean water per day. The rule is relevant for athletes in particular and for people seeking to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
- Low water consumption leads to diseases and premature aging, and disrupts metabolism and hormonal balance.
- Carbonated drinks contain sugar in huge quantities, but they cannot fully substitute water to have a beneficial effect.
- Drinking water during the day helps to avoid dehydration, heat stroke, and headaches. Drinking replenishes energy.
How to take part
Set a reminder on your smartphone to remind your family to drink water. A bottle of water must be taken to sports training, hiking, cycling. Add a piece of lime or lemon to the water to improve the taste. It has a beneficial effect on digestion and is good for the skin. In the kitchen, put a special jug or carafe of water so that everyone has access to filtered drinking water during the day.
