Don’t go breaking my heart! Stay Hydrated
HYDRATION!!! A holiday weekend is coming up and many will be outside playing cornhole (like CIT employees will be Friday), family picnics, celebrating in remembrance for the holiday, and just plain spending time in the sun. Remember when it is as hot and humid out, you have to make sure you stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water and if you already have some dehydration…. boost it with a sports drink with electrolytes (see fun video below). =)
Hydration is extremely crucial to your entire body but especially your heart. “It’s critical for your heart health.
Keeping the body hydrated helps the heart more easily pump blood through the blood vessels to the muscles. And, it helps the muscles remove waste so that they can work efficiently”, according to the American Heart Association. This means less muscle cramping and fatigue that can ruin your weekend.
Even though Manning encourages it, you don’t have to sweat it to get it. Stay hydrated friends!
