Every morning, I find myself hitting that snooze button more and more. Even after I eventually drag myself out of bed, the groggy feeling stays with me for hours... Is this what getting older is?!
The promise of my double espresso shot is the only thing that gets me up and out the door. But at the end of the workday, I am left with zero energy and a headache. I enjoy my afternoon extra flat white, but I feel like something needs to change.
I used to be able to go to the gym in the morning before work. Now I'm dragging myself to go after work, even though I know I'm just barely getting through sessions.
I was in my gym class, complaining to my instructor when he took one look at me and said, "You're just dehydrated." I am not dehydrated! I might not drink my 8 glasses every day, but I always have my water bottle with me.
"Hydration is not just about water," he said and handed me an orange packet with powder inside it. "No thanks, I don't take artificial stuff," I said. But he assured me this was what I needed.
It was a low-sugar orange powder packed with the perfect balance of electrolytes with no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners that would fully hydrate me "faster than water." Hydrant wasn't like any of the other sports drinks - he said adding one packet of Hydrant to your morning glass of water ensures that all your water intake during the day will be optimized for rapid hydration.
I emptied the Hydrant Blood Orange-flavored powder into my water bottle, gave it a shake, and took a sip. I really liked the taste - not too sweet, just a little flavor to my water. It was so delicious, I drank the whole bottle on my way home, but I wondered if it would do anything. He gave me a second packet to try in the a.m.
Out of curiosity, I looked up the symptoms of being dehydrated, and everything on the list was me - tired, lack of focus, headaches... I thought that I was drinking enough water, but it clearly wasn't the correct way to hydrate my body.
The next day, I found myself only snoozing my alarm once - a new record for me! I drank my second glass with Hydrant and also didn't feel as groggy, something I hadn't felt in a long time. I continued to sip my water as usual for the rest of the day.
The next morning, without Hydrant, I lost count of the number of times I hit that snooze button. Did it really make that much of a difference to me?
Hydrant seemed to work and was so convenient. I decided to go online and purchase the variety pack. I was dying to try the Grapefruit and Lime flavors!
A few days later, my Hydrant package arrived, and I couldn't wait to try them. As advised on the packet, I added one packet each morning to my bottle of water, and then I continued to drink water as normal for the rest of the day. So easy.
After a full week of taking Hydrant, I was ready to get out of bed once I opened my eyes. My focus was no longer slacking throughout the day, and my headaches were completely gone! No need for that third cup of coffee anymore.
All the flavors taste sooo good, but my favorite would have to be the Blood Orange. I am so happy with the results I am getting from simply just adding Hydrant to my water in the morning.
I am back to my best and back to my morning gym classes. Thanks, Hydrant!
