Maintaining proper hydration in winter is just as important as in summer. But staying properly hydrated is something we often forget to do as the temperature drops. Cold winter air is much drier than humid summer air and, in winter, we’re often in heated buildings, which also have drier air. This impacts the amount of moisture our bodies naturally absorb from the environment.
In winter, we don’t easily notice we’re dehydrated because we aren’t perspiring as much. But studies have shown that being just 1-2 percent dehydrated can affect your mood, energy level, and mental awareness. Water is a smart choice if you want to avoid or moderate calories, caffeine, sugar, artificial colors or flavors, and other ingredients. And bottled water offers people who are on-the-go a refreshing, healthy, hydrating, and convenient beverage that provides consistent safety, quality, and good taste.
Consumers can choose from a variety of bottled waters—including spring, purified, mineral, artesian, and sparkling. So, drink bottled water and stay hydrated, stay healthy, and stay safe. And please, always recycle! For more information, visit www.bottledwater.org.
