Whether you’re grinding out the work day until 5 p.m. or spending the day out in the sun, if you’re like me, you succumb to the dreaded 2:30 crash. Don’t mistake this post as an endorsement of the latest and greatest fresh-brewed technology or for that of a wonder-shot toting cowboy. There is actually a great, usually free way to stave off the afternoon yawns. Adequate hydration throughout the day helps keep your body operating smoothly and can keep you feeling refreshed.
Summer is typically a time where most of your free hours are spent taking part in outdoor activities. Spending time at the beach, golfing, bicycling, or taking a leisurely stroll around the block are all great summer activities. But even the simplest activities can become dangerous if you are not careful. In the summer, it is important to stay hydrated.
