If you’re anything like us, you’ll be doing some adult drinking tonight. Paramount in self-care is watching your health, which is why I’m featuring water in this week’s installment.

River water broken by bolders and dappled with sunlight.The general rule is to drink two full glasses of water per every alcoholic drink you consume. That will help reduce dehydration and mitigate the New Years hangover.

Waves breaking on rocks.Things like alcohol, coffee and many types of sodas are diuretics, which mean they encourage water loss. While that’s helpful in some medical conditions, too much can be harmful.

And remember, always listen to your body. If you need to throw up, throw up. If you start feeling sick, take a break from the booze. Your health is more important than anyone else’s opinion.

Shovel PointIf you need to bring your own water, do so.

As a side note, all the water pictured in this post is either from Lake Superior or its tributaries. It’s remarkably clear, and the brown color comes from the iron rich soil of the area. We didn’t get up there this summer, but hopefully we will in 2016.
