I’m fairly sure that I live my life chronically dehydrated.
- Between all the Sprite plus Pepsi that I drink, along with the adult beverages I consume, coupled with my general inability to remember to drink water throughout the day, it seems apparent that I’m not keeping enough moisture in my body.
I often feel sluggish plus hungry as a result, plus my skin plus lips can get dry fairly easily. That’s why summer time time is so difficult for me plus I struggle to stay healthy during the entire season. Because it gets so hot plus humid outdoors, there is no option except to rely on lots of powerful air conditioning to keep cool indoors. My buddy and I operate our central cooling system nearly every day, plus the season legitimately lasts half the year… During this time the air conditioning is providing unmatched relief from the misery outside, however causes a whole up-to-date set of troubles indoors by removing so much moisture from the air. The dehumidified indoor environment that A/C creates is both a blessing plus a curse, because it feels amazing in the short term, however causes me to be even more dehydrated in the long run. The dry air sucks moisture out from my hair, skin, plus nails, plus I am consistently moisturizing. The cool air also tends to give me headaches plus respiratory troubles if I’m not getting enough relief from the natural outdoor air. Long story short, there is no winning in the battle against summer time air. It feels like a lose-lose when you’re fighting heat plus humidity with frigid plus dryness.
