    Staying hydrated during sports

    Many people are keen to keep their January resolutions going strong, which is why they continue to exercise regularly and eat sensibly as we head into spring. It's a great thing to do, not just to get a head start on summer, but also because good health is the cornerstone of a happy and enjoyable life. Healthy people can have it all: energy, wellbeing, enthusiasm and a zest for life. Without good health people rapidly feel tired, depressed, under par and generally not at their peak. Good health can be greatly boosted with exercise, nutrition and plenty of water. Head to the bottled water coolers at work and make sure you are getting at least eight glasses of the cold stuff each day. The human body is made up of 70% water – you'll rapidly feel the benefits of being hydrated. It's also sensible to top up your exercise bottle at the bottled water cooler if you're planning to go to the gym at lunch and get a workout in. Remember to be hydrated beforehand or you will really struggle to perform at your best. You will need to increase your water intake, but you don't need sports drinks. Commercial varieties simply mix water with sugar, salt and chemical additives. If you are training over long distances, such as for a marathon, a big bottle of water with a pinch of sugar and salt and maybe a little fruit juice is all that you need. Make sure your diet is prepared to help you achieve your new fitness goals too. Eat plenty of lean, high-quality protein, along with a rainbow colour of vegetables and fruits. Eat wholegrain carbohydrates and avoid processed foods and sugars. Eat small portions often to keep your blood sugar stable. You'll rapidly start to feel and look different as your healthy regime kicks in.
