The Best Water Infused Drinks To Stay Healthy And Hydrated This Autumn!

Spread the love

As the leaves fall from the trees and autumn arrives, many people start to feel a bit more tired than usual. One of the main reasons for this may be dehydration. Dehydration can make you feel tired, dizzy and breathless as well as giving you headaches. It is therefore vital to ensure that you are drinking enough water each day to prevent this. Here is everything you need to know about staying hydrated in autumn.

Why Is Autumn A Dry Season 🍁

Autumn is a time of year when the weather becomes drier and colder. This is because the sun’s energy is being redirected towards the north, away from Earth. This change in the weather can have a big impact on the human body. Changes in temperature can affect us in many ways. Changes in air pressure mean that the air is less likely to carry moisture around our bodies. This can make it difficult for us to breathe comfortably. 

Dry air also pulls moisture from our skin and causes it to dry out and become itchy. This causes us to have to moisturize our skin more frequently than we would during other times of the year. This can lead to chapped lips and dry skin in other areas of our body. 

We may feel tired, cold and ill. Our energy levels may drop because we don’t feel the need to sleep as much when the weather is colder and dryer. We may also feel sluggish and lose our motivation to complete our daily tasks. We may find that we feel hungry more often. This is because the dry and cold air can cause the body to burn more energy to stay warm and cozy.

We may need to take more naps during the day to make up for this. As well as causing tiredness, the cold and dry weather may also cause aches and pains in our joints.

What Is Dehydration? 🌡

Dehydration is the condition whereby your body contains less water than it should and therefore is unable to function properly. It is usually caused by not drinking enough fluids or losing too much fluid through urine or sweat. This can often occur when you are dehydrated or are suffering from an illness that causes vomiting or diarrhea such as the flu or gastroenteritis.

Dehydration can also be caused if you are exercising in the heat or by drinking alcohol excessively. Drinking alcohol can cause you to lose a large amount of water through urination. Excessive sweating due to exercise can also cause you to become dehydrated. Even simply spending time in a hot environment without taking any measures to stay hydrated can make you dehydrated. This is why it is important to drink plenty of water even when the weather is cool.

Effects Of Dehydration On The Human Body πŸ₯΅

People who are dehydrated may experience a number of unpleasant symptoms including:

  1. Thirst πŸ₯΅
  2. Fatigue πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«
  3. Dizziness πŸ₯΄
  4. Difficulty In Concentrating 😰

People may also experience muscle cramps, decreased athletic performance and a loss of appetite. In severe cases, dehydration can lead to shock and even death. It is therefore important to avoid becoming dehydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day and increasing your intake of high-water content foods, such as fruits and vegetables. 

Water Infused Drinks – A Tasty Solution

Water infused drinks are becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. They are healthy for the human body and provide numerous health benefits. Water infused drinks are simply delicious beverages that contain water and flavors. The flavors are made from:

  1. Fruits
  2. Herbs
  3. Spices

For example, you can add fruit to a pitcher of water to create fruit-infused water. You can also add herbs and lemon to create a cucumber lemon water infusion. There are also flavored waters available that contain real fruit juices and are not diluted with water. Water is a vital nutrient that is necessary for human life. It transports nutrients throughout the body and regulates body temperature. Water also helps the body eliminate waste and plays an important role in digestion. For these reasons, it is important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day.

Although plain water is good for you, it sometimes gets boring to drink. For this reason, water infused drinks have become very popular. Water infused with different flavorings can add variety to your fluid intake and keep you hydrated. Some popular water infused drinks include:

  1. Strawberry lemonade πŸ“πŸ‹
  2. Peach iced tea πŸ‘πŸ§Š
  3. Watermelon juice πŸ‰πŸ‰
  4. Blueberry yogurt smoothie 🫐🫐
  5. Mango coconut water πŸ₯­πŸ₯­

The best thing about these drinks is that they require very few ingredients to prepare and taste good!
