Don't stash that water bottle just yet!

Well the warm weather has gone, and most likely so has the water bottle you've been toting around to keep you cool on those hot, hot days.  But don’t toss that water bottle into the cabinet just yet.

Yes, we sweat less (well, some of us) in the winter, but we are also exposed to dryer air.  In addition wearing more layers, sleeping under more blankets, cranking the heat up in the house…all these keep our core temperature up a bit more than the lighter weight clothes and the air conditioning do in the summer.

Staying hydrated is important no matter what time of year it is!  Know your body and what your body needs – there is no set formula for anyone…8 8 oz glasses is a great guideline but it varies greatly by gender, size, activity level....I could go on and on.  The Pee Test is the best test.  If your pee isn't wheat colored, you aren't getting enough water in your day.  So drink up!
