Hydration Myths vs. Facts

Posted on November 08, 2023

Keeping yourself well-hydrated is like giving your body a high-five for overall health and happiness! However, when it comes to hydration, there are plenty of myths and misconceptions, so separating fact from fiction is important for making informed choices about your water intake. That said, it’s time to debunk some common hydration myths to keep you on the right track!

Myth #1: You Only Need to Drink Water When You're Thirsty

While thirst indicates dehydration, relying solely on your sense of thirst may not be enough. By the time you feel thirsty, you might already be mildly dehydrated! It's best to drink water regularly throughout the day to stay adequately hydrated. LifeSips make drinking water delicious and beneficial with added B vitamins. 

Myth #2: Eight Glasses of Water a Day is a Must

There's no one-size-fits-all recommendation for daily water intake. Your hydration needs depend on factors like your age, activity level, and overall health. Use this hydration calculator and adjust accordingly. You can even create your very own Custom Cirkul Bottle with a Hydration Motivation design on it as a friendly reminder each day! 

Myth #3: All Caffeinated Beverages Dehydrate You

Here's a jolt of good news for all caffeine lovers! They aren’t out to steal your hydration. In fact, they can be your hydration buddies. GoSip, Frosted, Gateway Tea, Fission, and Inflow Energy brands contain Sip flavors that will contribute to your daily fluid intake! Just find the perfect energizing balance for you.

Myth #4: Hydration Only Matters in Hot Weather

Hydration is essential year-round. Cold and dry conditions can also lead to dehydration. Even the cozy embrace of indoor heating during winter can leave you yearning for a sip! Drinking water is always essential, no matter the temperature outside!

Now that these myths are put to rest, you can approach your hydration routine with confidence. Remember, staying well-hydrated is a fundamental aspect of maintaining good health, and understanding why can help you make informed choices!
