Feel A Lil' Better: Because The Sun Is Out And You Don't Want To Get Dehydrated

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

As it is practically summer in a majority of the United States, many of us are taking to the streets for long walks, socially distanced takeout, and runs through the neighborhood. Many of our favorite, indoor activities are still not open (thanks to that pesky little pandemic called COVID-19) so we're looking at a summer spent outside in the heat. This means it's extra important for us to stay hydrated as we try to beat the heat.

Each week, we're bringing you the best resources and influencers to give you a health boost. Here's what we're following this week regarding staying hydrated.

Book: "Quench"

Dana Cohen understands what we've all been taught about drinking enough water — and how some of those practices may be outdated. Using research from The University of Washington, she addresses myths, good and bad habits, and the ideal method to hydrate your body.

Podcast: "Food Heaven Podcast"

Whitley Atkins joins the Food Heaven Podcast to discuss how individuals can find out what their specific hydration needs are, and how to meet those needs accordingly.

Twitter account: Michael Kuluva

YouTuber: Fully Raw Kristina

Kristina breaks down physical symptoms of dehydration as well as quick, effective ways to re-hydrate your body. Hydration isn't necessarily just how much water you drink — she gives you the full picture of what happens when your body dehydrates and re-hydrates.

Playlist: Ocean Sounds

You gotta get in the right mood.

BONUS: A time-marked water bottle

It can be a little too easy to lose track of how much water you're drinking. A water bottle that reminds you means you won't even have to worry about it!

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.
