Your Walk Today: 17 Minutes Long
Today’s Tip: Bring Your Water With You
Today, we want to remind you to drink your water! Not just carry it with you on your walk, but to make sure you stay hydrated before and after your walks, and throughout the day. Here’s why…
Without fail, one of the most important aspects of walking is to remain hydrated. Prolonged states of dehydration can easily lead to heat sensitivity, nausea, and poor cognition. We created a video here https://youtu.be/NH0X9CUFIZk with the details to stay hydrated.
Surprisingly, the best time to drink water is before you ever start walking. Proper hydration may help prevent muscle soreness and excess fatigue felt during the exercise.
During the hottest time of the year, significant water loss can occur in as little as fifteen minutes of walking in direct sunlight. The rule of thumb is that you should drink at least three to six ounces of water for every mile, which is equivalent to at least half a cup of water per mile.
By the time you're thirsty, you're already dehydrated. If you're appropriately hydrated, you should feel the urge to urinate every two to four hours. Moreover, your urine should be clear.
Many experienced walkers bring at least a litre of water for them for a four-hour-long walk. In more humid or colder environments, it's often possible to get away with slightly less fluid since you won't sweat nearly as much.
Choosing the Right Water Bottle
Your choice for a lightweight water bottle that can comfortably slip into your hand or backpack for accessible use. We recommend a good quality stainless steel water bottle.
It would be great to hear if you practice staying hydrated each day and if you bring water with you when you go out for your daily walks in the comments below.
We believe that the practice of walking is one of the ways we connect to living a healthy and vibrant life.
As we bring water on each walk this helps us improve, we feel good staying hydrated and it definitely helps us be thankful for each day that we get outside on our daily walk.
We appreciate that it never seems as if there are enough hours in the day, but it is so important to make a conscious decision to practice moving well, staying hydrated and we believe that walking is the most accessible form of exercise on the planet. Taking care of your mind, body and emotional needs will help you be able to live your best life.
You are your best advocate; if you are not moving well each day, it is easy to get burned out by all of life's demands. Taking some time each day for yourself to get outside and walk can have a profound impact on your well-being. Physical fitness and moving well begin and ends with you!
