There’s no need for the latest athletic apparel
Retailers may be filled with workout clothes and activewear at this time of the year, but you don’t need to spend a pretty penny on them. A cotton T-shirt is durable and breathable, although it won’t wick away moisture. In that case, search for inexpensive clothing made of nylon and polyester, which will keep moisture at bay and will dry swiftly.
You can forgo purchasing a smart water bottle
An Amazon search will reveal dozens of smart water bottle options that track your water intake, but it may not be worth the investment.
There’s no hard-and-fast rule about how much water you need to drink to remain hydrated. A Consumer Reports story about how to stay hydrated noted that the appropriate quantity to drink “can vary a good bit from person to person.”
HealthLinkBC, a government-funded telehealth service in Canada, said the best way to know you’re drinking enough water is to pay attention to the color of your urine: a clear or pale yellow means you’re drinking enough while a darker yellow means you need to hydrate more.
