I’m ending my summer in NY in Finger Lakes Wine Country for the TBEX travel conference. While here, I’ve been visiting the museums, eating and drinking at local restaurants and bars, and walking around the downtown area. As exciting as traveling is, it does sometimes change my regular schedule. I typically drink 48-60 ounces of water on a regular day but on vacation, it can be a lot less. Not drinking enough water has even caused me to become dehydrated. Luckily I was able to take notice and develop an easy method to drink more water and stay hydrated when traveling. If you’re looking for some easy ways to stay hydrated while traveling, here are some tips that can help.
Purchase Bottled Water
A good tip for staying hydrated while traveling is to purchase bottled water. Some hotels provide complimentary bottled water when checking in, but mine did not. Purchasing food and drinks at the hotel can add up so I saved money by going shopping. I’ll be in Corning all week so I made a trip to the nearest Target to purchase some bottles of vitaminwater® zero squeezed® and DASANI® from the water section. I have a full-sized refrigerator in my room so I let them get cool for the remainder of the trip.
Limit Alcohol and Sugary Drinks
I know what you’re thinking. It is hard to visit the Finger Lake Wine Country and NOT drink, but I’m limiting myself. Excessive alcohol and sugary drink consumption can cause dehydration. After a fun night having dinner and drinks with other content creators, I spent the rest of the night rehydrating by drinking DASANI while editing photos for social media before bed.
Keep Water in Your Bag
Another easy to stay hydrated when traveling is by keeping a bottle of water in my bag. The weather has been pretty cool, so it is perfect for walking around. While exploring Corning’s Gaffer District, I made sure to keep my vitaminwater in my bag to drink when I felt thirsty.
I have only a few days left in the Finger Lakes area and drinking the DASANI and vitaminwater has helped with keeping me hydrated through the day. I’ve been drinking so much, I may have to take another trip to Target to get some more.
