Make filtered water a part of our workout
Both before and after a workout, it is important to remain hydrated. Make sure your body is well hydrated before you begin your exercise routine to avoid burnout and increase your ability to reach your targets. Drink plenty of filtered water post-exercise to ensure your cells are not fighting to be replenished, and can continue on throughout the day.
Invest in a reusable water filter bottle
Investing in a reusable, sustainable filter water bottle means there’s no excuse when it comes to staying hydrated on-the-go.
Why pay money for bottled water when you can enjoy fresh, filtered water with the BRITA fill&go Active? Thanks to its MicroDisc technology, you can filter all the water you need from the tap at just a few cents per litre. Meaning you have more money to spend on treating yourself.
The BRITA fill&go Active is not just a tasty and convenient way to enjoy filtered water while on the go. It is BPA free and also a sustainable choice versus buying disposable bottles.
So not only are you keeping hydrated, but you’re doing your bit for the environment by not investing in what will inevitably become landfill.
Eat hydrating foods
Staying hydrated isn’t always about drinking. It is estimated that up to 20 per cent of our water intake comes from our food. Eating foods that are high in water content also have the added benefit of containing vital minerals, vitamins and fibre.
Here are some of our favourite hydrating fruits and vegetables:
Celery: 96 per cent water, and full of potassium, magnesium and calcium.
Watermelon: up to 95 per cent water and a great source of vitamin C.
Cucumbers: 95 per cent water and a great source of potassium, sodium and magnesium.
Strawberries: 92 per cent water and a great source of vitamin C and potassium.
Flavour your water
While water in itself is intensely refreshing, adding a few slices of your favourite fruit, or some cooling vegetables and fragrant herbs takes it to the next level and keeps it exciting.
