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Dana Cohen understands what we've all been taught about drinking enough water — and how some of those practices may be outdated.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.

Instagram influencer: Lisa Ginsburg

Lisa is a wellness enthusiast who's here to encourage you to live your best, most adventurous life. Not only is she super hydrated, but she shares other wellness and happiness tips for you to follow.

Twitter account: Michael Kuluva

If anyone knows the importance of healthy hydration levels, it's pro figure skater Michael Kuluva. Being an athletic isn't just intense cardio sessions or weight lifting — simple things like drinking water make a big difference in being the best version of yourself!

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!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
