I recently gave birth to my son 5 months ago, and still, it feels like it was just yesterday. And honestly, since then I’ve been a mess and having to deal with our flooded home repairs after the storm hasn’t been easy at all. As moms, we tend to put ourselves at the back of the line for just about everything. I know I sometimes manage to forget or just not have enough time to sit down and eat a proper meal or enjoy a refreshing drink.
Hydration is the most important way to keep ourselves healthy and energized for the long day ahead. So grab your favorite cup, for me, I love mason jars or clear cups that keep my drinks ice cold. Sometimes I fill my cup up and put it in the freezer for a while before I leave the house since it’s still hot here in Texas hydrating with a deliciously refreshing drink is a must for me when on-the-go.
3 Tips to Keep you Hydrated
- Download an app that reminds you to hydrate. As moms, we tend to forget anything that has to do with ourselves.
- Eat hydrating foods. Grab snack sized bags and pack them up with fresh fruit that contains lots of fluids like watermelon, apples, or pears. It’ll work as an on-the-go snack to calm hunger and you’ll be hydrating.
- Like I said before, find yourself a favorite cup that you want to drink from. Fill it up with a refreshing drink like Welch’s 100% Juice with Coconut Water, it not only has a great taste but has all the added benefits of coconut water and has naturally 30% less sugar, plus you’ll be getting in 2 servings of fruit in every 8oz cup you drink.
“The great taste of 100% Juice with 30% less sugar!”
I’ve grown up drinking Welch’s, they’ve always had a great taste and refreshing goodness. So I was excited to hear they’ve introduced coconut water into their juice, Welch’s 100% Juice with Coconut Water. Which is now available at your closest grocery store. Welch’s is made right here in the USA, with family farmers and Welch’s grapes. As a mom trying to get back into shape while drinking what I enjoy, this is my on-the-go juice because it naturally has 30% less sugar and is only 100 calories per serving with no added sweeteners or artificial flavors.
I know as moms we’re always busy on-the-go or not, but I hope my 3 easy tips help to keep you hydrated throughout hectic days in this motherhood journey we’re in. Remember, a hydrated mommy is a happy mommy 😉
