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Dana Cohen understands what we've all been taught about drinking enough water — and how some of those practices may be outdated.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

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
