Scientist shares genius life hacks on how to stay hydrated during winter
You may not know it, but your body requires more water in the winter – especially if you have your heating system on quite often.
For those particularly worried about getting dehydrated, scientist Karen James has posted a helpful Twitter thread for those in need of advice.
While it may be raining or snowing outside, our homes – warmed by our radiators or wood-burning stoves – will have very low humidity that might almost resemble a “small desert”.
But as James points out, there are ways to increase humidity in your house without spending your hard-earned money on a humidifier.
Her advice, besides drinking plenty of water and regular moisturising, includes opening the bathroom door when showering, air-drying laundry venting the dryer into your house instead of outside (unless you have a gas dryer) and opening the dishwasher door when it is done to let the steam out.
And it appears, these are just the life hacks we need right now.
