The Importance of Hydration in Your Daily Routine

The Importance of Hydration in Your Daily Routine

This post is sponsored by CORE Nutrition, LLC and Fit Approach.


Now that we are starting to reach higher temperatures here in Colorado, I am VERY excited and I am beginning to plan all sorts of outdoor activities. I already have a few 5k's planned and I can't wait to start hiking the beautiful Colorado mountains. If I can get outdoors and get active instead of being in a stuffy gym or basement I'm all about it.

I know that in order to perform my best and stay active on a daily basis I have to stay hydrated. A woman's body is made up of over half water, about 55%! In order to function well. I am continually drinking water and eating hydrating fruit and vegetables.

The Importance of Hydration in Your Daily Routine

Hydration is very important for your daily routine. When I am properly hydrated I see an improvement in my physical performance, mental clarity, focus, productivity and digestion.

Some other benefits we can experience from proper hydration include:

Reduced fatigue

Clearer / healthier skin

Weight loss / weight management

Appetite control

Reduced fluid retention

I love the increased energy that I feel when I am properly hydrated. During my coffee fast last month, I was drinking a ton of water. Doing so helped decrease the cravings for coffee and reduced the withdrawal headaches I experienced. I also became more aware that I needed to drink more water more often.

During the last week or so of my coffee fast, I was able to substitute some of the plain water I was drinking with CORE® Hydration water. Occasionally substituting your regular water with a pH water is believed to neutralize the acid in your body, this was one of my main goals for my coffee fast.

The great thing about CORE Hydration in particular is that it is a nutrient enhanced pH water that helps your body reach its ideal hydration and pH balance. According to CORE Hydration:

"CORE® Hydration water is ultra-purified using a seven stage proprietary process including U.V., carbon filtration, reverse osmosis and ozonation that removes harmful impurities and contaminants. It’s then balanced with the perfect blend of electrolytes and minerals that complement the levels that naturally occur in the human body. The result - a clean and crisp tasting water with the “Perfect pH” of 7.4*" 

This is great because when we are not properly hydrated we can experience some nasty side effects in our bodies including:

Increased thirst


cotton mouth

muscle weakness

extreme cases of the munchies ;)

These are all things I can live without. I try to drink around 64 oz of water or more a day to keep my body properly hydrated. I know that staying hydrated helps me stay functioning well in my everyday active life.
