Staying hydrated by regularly drinking water is a great way to improve fitness and maintain or boost general health. This article will give you some strategies to stay hydrated and healthy!


  1. Purchase a personal water bottle. A reusable, durable water bottle will make staying hydrated a lot easier. You can take it quickly and easily with you wherever you go to stay hydrated on the move.
    • Decorate your water bottle! Add stickers on your water bottle from destinations you have visited; it’s a cool way to show where you (and your water bottle!) have traveled.
  2. Make sure to eat breakfast every day.

    Healthy eating goes hand in hand with hydration. Breakfast kick starts your metabolism, whereas skipping breakfast (or any other meal) can slow your metabolism and make weight gain more likely.

  3. Eat in moderation, throughout the day. Depending on your schedule, you may feel hungry for snacks at different times in the day.

    • Healthy snacks that are packed with fiber and protein will keep you feeling full and give you more energy than sugary or fatty foods, and are better choices for your body. Examples of (just a few) good snacks are carrots, Greek yogurt, apples, nuts, berries, other veggies, etc. Keep moderation in mind.
    • Drink water continuously, along with your snacks!
  4. Stay active! You can be creative about how you exercise. However you decide to do it, bring water with you and drink before, during, and after activity if possible.
    • Some suggestions for how to stay active are hiking, going to the gym, swimming, yoga, etc.
  5. Stay hydrated at work or school. Regardless of your age or your position, it is important to have water readily accessible. The easier it is for you to reach for your water, the more likely you are to drink it and stay hydrated!

  6. Don’t skip meals. Lunch and dinner are important meals that help keep your metabolism active! These steps (breakfast, lunch, dinner, physical activity, etc.) don’t necessarily have to be done in a particular order. You can take the principles and strategies presented in this article and apply them flexibly to your own schedule.
    • Do some research on healthy recipes that meet your nutritional needs.
    • Don’t rush when eating: remember that it can take twenty minutes for your brain to get the signs from your stomach that you’re full, so take it slow.
    • Try to eat your dinner a few hours before you go to sleep. Eating too close to bedtime can slow your metabolism and lower your quality of sleep.
