Stay Hydrated On Halloween By Avoiding Carbonated Beverages While Indulging In Sweets, Drinking Extra Water To Compensate And Carrying Reusable Or Recyclable Water Bottles With Spooky Labels To Make It More Fun For The Kids!
While many regions of the country are eliminating typical Halloween activities that could increase the risk of spreading Covid-19, everyone is finding ways to make the act of trick ‘r treating safer. In fact, so many American towns are allowing trick ‘r treating to occur as long as those participating follow the guidelines.
If you decide to head out on Halloween for a little candy round up, it’s important to stay hydrated. No matter how far you go or how long you are out, you will need water to stay nourished and replenish the energy your body uses up. Despite a common misconception, it IS possible to dehydrate in cold months. Here are a few ways to stay hydrated…
Take water bottles for you and the children. Reusable or recyclable bottles are easy to store or carry and are great for on-the-go action.
To make drinking water while running for candy more appealing to kids, decorate the water bottle labels with fun spooky stickers or have the kids make their own out of construction paper and tape it onto the bottle. You can even play games and pretend the water is Invisible Kid Serum or Anti-Ghost Juice.
Since Halloween is a time where sweets are plenty, you will need to compensate by drinking extra water. Your body needs healthy nourishment to keep from being dehydrated from all of that sugar.
If you ARE indulging in sweets, avoid carbonated beverages. These only add to dehydration.
For adults partaking in a Halloween cocktail or attending a small gathering, be sure to drink a glass of water in between alcoholic drinks. Not only will this keep you hydrated but will help you pace better and decrease the likelihood of you getting sick. Before you go to bed, drink a pint of water to help your body replenish itself.
Stay hydrated, be safe and have a FANGtastic Halloween!
