COOL AS A CUCUMBER… AND THEN SOME Thursday, July 15, 2010
Need a cure for that midday slump? Try swapping caffeine for water during your afternoon coffee break. Come the summer months, it’s especially important to stay well-hydrated since you need to compensate for what your body sweats out. The headache that hits post-lunch may not be a caffeine call after all.
We know sipping cup after cup of plain water gets old quick, and that’s when we break out some frozen cucumber slices, Not only do they help keep your water nice and cool—they have a soothing, refreshing effect. Cucumbers not your thing? Don’t let that stop you from getting your fill. Citrus slices—take your pick from lemon, lime and even orange, may help get you to that finish line too, so you can be alert and ready for all the fun that lies ahead come 5:00pm.
