I was on a call last week when our temperatures were in the mid-90s and it was snowing in Wisconsin, so it’s a hard for me to say that it is beginning to warm up everywhere, but spring is upon us! It is a natural tendency in the cooler months to hydrate a little less, but now that temperatures are starting to climb, it is a good time to talk about hydration—what to drink and how much we need to drink.

Drink water. You do not need to go out and purchase fancy alkaline water, water enriched with different vitamins and minerals, or other advertised benefits. The health enhancements these products provide are anecdotal at best (remember our biased studies from a couple weeks ago?). Choosing the water you drink is purely out of preference, I fully appreciate the taste difference between tap water, reverse osmosis, water softener systems, bottled, and more.
