Step up your bev game


Decorate your bev as shown here.

Let’s be real.  Its 2020.  And there is still an absurd number of you walking around dehydrated.  Nonsense I tell you.  Go get yourself a Yeti, or a Hydro flask if that’s your thing.  Deck that bad boy out, stickers, friendship bracelets, whatever it takes, for God’s sake just drink some water.  It is crazy to me that this even has to be said, but I assure you it needs to be heard.  Throughout my extensive athletic training, I have learned that you need to drink at least your body’s weight in ounces of water each and every day.  If you think you can’t do that, you’re a dirty no good liar.  At first it seems impossible but once you get the hang of it and feel the benefits it’s impossible to go back.

Drinking more fluids will help get rid of pesky headaches and acne and will improve your overall health.  Straight up water too boring?  Spice it up a little, try adding ice, lemon slices, orange slices, assorted juices, flavor packets, or maybe even just a hint of Gatorade may do the trick.  Make it your own; be creative, and the beverage universe is yours to explore.

So please, put an end to your chronic crustiness; acquire a means of beverage and hang on tight and never let go.  Dehydration is inexcusable in this time of quarantine, not to mention an immune system does not function well when your mouth is as dry as the Sahara Desert.  You are not a camel; you are a human being (probably) and you need water or else you will shrivel up like a raisin.  If we all come together, we can take on dehydration and end its reign of terror once and for all.  So, I challenge you to step your bev game up.
