Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, citizens around the world are faced with the reality of carrying on everyday routines within their home, including telecommuting and schooling. Staying home is essential for “flattening the curve” and preventing the spread and potential exposure of COVID-19, but the change in routine is leaving many in unfamiliar territory – especially when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle.
The situation is no different to Hydra-Guard's Ambassadors and Pro Athletes. We decided to put out this new blog segment to keep up with our Ambassadors and check into more detail how they are dealing with this situation and how they are staying healthy, motivated and hydrated during their quarantine!
Our Ambassador update this week is Alexander Mattison. Alex currently plays for the Minnessota Vikings as a Running Back. He's a native from San Bernardino, CA, and played for Boise State in college. "I believe that staying properly hydrated is important because as an athlete it is more than proper hydration it is a way of life and helps prevent any injuries. I really believe in the vision and future of hydra-guard for the sports world and proper hydration to be in the best tip-top shape to perform well" says Alex.
In this quarantine, Alex has been staying active by doing home workouts and staying on top of his nutrition. Check out his video above to learn more about his update!
We should always remember that vitamin and minerals — particularly A, C and E, as well as zinc — play an important role in keeping the immune system strong and staying healthy with a better productivity rate and better overall mood while working from home. Staying at home at this time is very important as well as keeping a good and balanced diet. Filling each plate with produce, lean meats, dairy and healthy fats, will help us to get what we need to help keep our immune system strong.
Our body also needs fluids and electrolytes to function at its best. That’s especially true when you’re suffering symptoms like fever, coughing, diarrhea and vomiting, which can easily dehydrate you. Proper rehydration helps with recovery. Drinks with essential electrolytes such as Hydra-Guard Sports Drink have been recommended by the World Health Organization and the American Academy of Pediatrics for decades to relieve symptoms associated with virus-related mild to moderate dehydration in both adults and kids. You could use the code AM10 for a special discount on the website, and I also recommend you to subscribe to the newsletter because they are always releasing special codes for even higher discounts on their products.
The CDC says if you’re experiencing symptoms of coronavirus — including fever, cough, shortness of breath 2-14 days after exposure — seek medical attention immediately. Today is a great day to start taking the best care of yourself. Don’t skip on great nutrition, hydration, rest and exercise. Help others do the same.
