Fully Hydrated

      It's hard to exaggerate the importance of staying fully hydrated and during the summertime it can often be a bit of a challenge to drink enough water in order to achieve this goal. Although there is nothing seriously wrong with drinking flavored drinks, most experts would agree that pure water is the best liquid to drink. Although some specialty sports drinks claim to replenish vital electrolytes, minerals, and vitamins, it's probably best to keep things simple and stick to good, old-fashioned H2O. Of course, if water is too boring for you, a little flavor is preferable to failing to ingest lots of liquid, but avoid the sweet stuff, too much sugar is not going to be beneficial for most people. As for artificial sweeteners, there is some debate regarding the health effects of most of them. Another thing to avoid are caffeinated drinks since caffeine is a diuretic, which means that it will reduce the hydrating effect of any beverage that you drink. In any case, be sure to "wet your wottle" and drink as much water as possible!

Lyrics:

It can get kinda hot during summer vacation
And so it's hard to avoid dehydration
Ya gotta drink a lot throughout the day
To keep your body working A-OK

It's not complex or complicated
It's been proven many times - it's been demonstrated
But to keep it crystal clear and simply stated
It's important to stay fully hydrated

Lots of people carry round water in a bottle
So they always have something to wet their wottle
They may drink it all down or maybe they can't
If there's any extra left, then they can water a plant
