Physical Wellness Month is all about reminding people to take the time to get outdoors, do some physical activity, eat right, and stay hydrated. Even those of us here in California are beginning to enjoy the hotter weather, shedding those winter clothes and hopefully those extra pounds. But as we increase the amount of physical activity we perform, we urge you to drink plenty of safe drinking water to stay hydrated and healthy. Except for oxygen, there’s nothing your body needs more than an adequate supply of water. And the more exercise you perform, the more important it is to drink the right amount of water before, during, and after your workouts. This direct relationship between exercise, water consumption, and proper physical wellness is a great habit to instill in young children as well. Dehydration can make it hard to get the most out of your workout, and in extreme situations, can even be dangerous to your health. Waiting until you are thirsty to drink water during exercise or vigorous activity is said to be too late by some and others will still urge you to hydrate nonetheless. Dehydration occurs when your body loses too much fluid. This can happen when you stop drinking water or lose large amounts of fluid through diarrhea, vomiting, sweating, or exercise.  It takes an average of 64 to 80 ounces to replace the water our bodies lose in 24 hours. Under normal circumstances, how much water we need depends a great deal on the volume of our perspiration and urine output. Bottled water is tempting to grab and take for physical activity. But the bottled water problems in this country are growing out of country and in order to make a more eco-friendly choice, consider one of our efficient and effective drinking water systems. You can install it right at the tap and the water filter will reduce potential toxins, chemicals, or other drinking water contamination so you can fill up and head out the door. It is also much more cost-effective to fill your own water bottle rather than continually purchase cases of bottled water at the store. Water is so necessary for our survival and even more necessary for our bodies to strive. Proper physical health starts with hydration and will improve each glass of water you drink. While soft drinks and sugary juices are popular beverages, water is by far our best choice for a healthy lifestyle.

A Healthy Family Makes Healthy Choices

drinking water system. Water is essential for good health and is an important habit to teach young children. Our bodies need plenty of safe drinking water to function properly. It is known that 75% of people are chronically dehydrated. Even mild dehydration will slow down ones metabolism by as much as 3%. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty facing the computer screen. According to medical experts, “we even feel thirsty because thirst is already an indication that we are dehydrated. A lot of people even mistake their thirst for hunger and about 37% of us do this constantly. A glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of dieters who participated in a study.” Water is also a key factor in weight loss because it reduces calorie intake and makes us feel fuller for longer. Water is involved in all of the cellular processes in your body. “Your metabolism is basically a series of chemical reactions that take place in your body,” says Trent Nessler, PT, DPT, MPT, managing director of Baptist Sports Medicine in Nashville. “Staying hydrated keeps those chemical reactions moving smoothly.” Being even 1% dehydrated can cause a significant drop in metabolism. Furthermore, drinking water also may help you cut calories. For example, replacing the higher calorie beverages with plain water or flavored water (without added sugar) can significantly reduce calories. Part of making better choices for health and wellness is finding the right tools to make these decisions even easier. Our drinking water filters reduce the contaminants found in tap water through an effective reverse osmosis process. And to help in making better wellness choices, our drinking water systems also allow the user to choose the flavor of their drinking water to make it an even more appealing choice for beverages for each family member. It is our goal, too, to keep your family happy and healthy. Contact us today to see how beneficial our water purifiers can be for your family’s overall health and wellness. After all, a healthy family is a happy family.]]>

Posted by Rayne Water

soft water can make all the difference. With hard water there is more calcium buildup on bath fixtures causing for more clean up later, something nobody wants to think about while they are relaxing in the tub. In addition, hard water requires the use of more soap for it to lather and get you feeling clean. Last, but not least, a nice long bath in hard water will leave you with dry, itchy skin. The best approach to correcting the issue of hard water  is to install a home water softener. In addition to enjoying baths with silky smooth water,  a whole house water softener  can help to save money on cleaning supplies and soaps. It has also been proven that water softeners help to improve the efficiency of your water heater – something necessary for taking long, hot baths. In a bathtub or shower, softened water can actually improve the health of your skin and help to resolve skin problems such as eczema. In addition, having soft water in your bathtub will also improve your hair, making it shinier and less dry.  Aside from the benefits of soft water on your skin and hair, soft water is gentler  on your appliances, your clothes and your dishes, adding to their longevity. If you are new to the idea of a soft water system, don’t be intimated by the vast array of options. There are many reputable water companies  out there that offer free consultations and quotes. Contact an authorized Rayne retailer  near you to learn about your water softener options.   Some water companies even offer exchange tank services   that offer an eco-friendly option with the added convenience of the dealer taking care of everything for you. No matter your need or circumstance a water softener can help with many things, including making that hot bath extra enjoyable.]]>
