Go grab coffee. Go to the gym. Go to doggy daycare. Go to kiddie daycare. Go to work. Go to a meeting. Go to lunch. Go to a meeting. Go to a meeting. Go to the store. Go to kiddie daycare. Go to doggie daycare. Go home. Go make dinner. Go fall into bed. Go do it all again. 

Going is what we as humans do. And to get going, stay going and keep going, hydration is key — especially in bustling cities like Austin and L.A. Staying hydrated on the go can be tricky. At Mountain Valley Spring Water, we understand this well. “The go” doesn’t often pause for thirst. “The go” doesn’t always allow for water breaks. But staying hydrated on the go can be done, and it can be refreshingly easy if you keep these tips and tricks in mind.

Stay Hydrated on the Go: Healthy hydration starts at home

Once the day gets going, it can be hard to stop it. That’s why drinking water early and often is key, whether you’re in L.A., Austin or anywhere else across the country. Drinking water first thing in the morning, either in lieu of coffee or in addition to coffee, can have tremendous health benefits, while also kickstarting your daily hydration. 

Benefits of drinking water first thing in the morning:

  • Aids digestion
  • Ensures metabolism is functioning optimally
  • Counteracts the dehydration that can occur during sleep
  • Helps flush toxins and harmful gut bacteria from the system
  • Fills the stomach and helps to avoid overeating

These benefits, we think, get even more beneficial when that first morning sip of water is Mountain Valley Spring Water. Since 1871, Mountain Valley Spring Water has sourced our purely crisp, purely fresh and hugely award-winning water from the same protected spring located in the heart of the Ouachita Mountains of the Southern U.S.

Stay Hydrated on the Go: Keep your water with you at all times

Sure, it’s easy to pop into a drive-thru for a mochaccino, or dip into a convenience store for a soda, but when it comes to hydration, experts agree that nothing compares to water. 

Water is nature’s hydration. Water comprises more than 55% of the human body. Water is, quite literally, what we’re made of. And when it comes to keeping these bodies of ours hydrated, even on the go, water is the best and healthiest answer.

Stay Hydrated on the Go: Just keep sipping

Water to-go: Check

So, you’re off to a nicely hydrated start. But to keep that hydration going, whilst on the go, you must keep sipping. 

According to the experts at Harvard, the average adult woman should drink 72 ounces, or nine cups, of water or liquids each day for optimal hydration. For adult men, that number rises to 104 ounces or 13 cups of water. When our bodies get dehydrated, the effects may include fatigue, confusion, irritability and even depression. Dehydration increases the risk of urinary tract infections, kidney stones, gallstones and constipation. 

While chugging large quantities of water is one way to reach 72 or 104 ounces, experts say taking small sips of water consistently throughout the day is better for our health and more effective for hydration. Smaller, more frequent sips of water allow our bodies to better absorb the water, whereas large quantities of water tend to pass quickly through the body and become urine. 

For those trying to stay hydrated on the go, setting reminders to sip your water can be a helpful way to keep drinking. There are even apps for that, including WaterMinder and Hydro Coach. 

More tips to keep sipping:

  • Find a water bottle you love: It doesn’t have to be expensive or trendy or fancy, but having a favorite water bottle or cup means you’re less likely to leave it behind and more likely to have it nearby for that next hydrating sip
  • Set a timer: If you don’t want another app, simply set a timer to go off every 30 minutes or 1 hour, reminding you to sip
  • Find a water you love: It’s easy to drink more water when that water is as award-winningly delicious as Mountain Valley Spring Water. Mountain Valley is water as nature intended it: naturally mineralized, naturally alkaline, and naturally, crisply, purely and wonderfully refreshing.
