4 Tips to Stay Healthy from Lindsay Catherine Blog

by Cascade Ice on January 15, 2020

It’s one thing to set healthy goals for the new year, but it’s a whole other challenge to keep them. Our friend Lindsey Catherine, a Scottsdale, Arizona lifestyle blogger, helps us break it down into small ways that can help you make big strides this year. Check out her top tips for making your healthy resolutions last!

Up your Hydration

Water is key this month, well every month. Kick start the year by adding more water into your lifestyle. Plain water, well can be boring. I started adding in flavored waters, Cascade Ice, into my everyday routine. These sparkling water drinks are guilt-free, sodium-free, and caffeine free! Trying to drink a gallon of water a day is pretty hard, but adding these into the mix should help.

Partner with a Buddy

Having a friend, family member, or significant other join in your reaching your goals can make a big difference and it’s free! My friend and I agreed to send each other our daily food and water diary every night before bed. This helps to hold myself and her accountable in our journeys, even if they are different. This also will help with mindless snacking. If you’re hungry, drink more water! If you’re feeling something sweet, drink a Cascade Ice, the flavors are amazing and are perfect for your cravings. My favorite is the Orange Mango and Lemonade.

Be Active

We all know the start of the year gyms are crazy busy and that might deter you from getting in your workout, well don’t let it! Try going at a different time, early in the morning, during your lunch break, or later in the evening. I tend to work out around 6:30 pm when the post work crowd begins to leave. Classes are also a great way to be healthy this month, and most companies run start of the year sales so give that cycle, barre or HIIT class.

All About You

Make sure you goals are about you. All too often we get lost in social media and what she or he looks like. There is no standard to beauty. Don’t worry about impressing other people, especially those you don’t personally know either. To achieve long-term success in your goals do it all for YOU.

3 Simple Tips to Help You Drink More Water Everyday

by Cascade Ice on November 4, 2019

We all know that we should be getting adequate hydration each day. After all, it helps with everything from digestion to regulating your mood and brain function. But sometimes our busy lives prevent us from keeping up with healthy habits. Here are some easy hacks to help you stay hydrated 24/7:

Sync hydration patterns to your daily routine

If you’re like most people, you have trouble remembering to drink enough water throughout the day. Any easy way to fix that is to develop a habit of drinking when you go from one activity to the next. For example, before you leave your car to go into the office each morning, finish your water bottle. Or, don’t leave for lunch without taking some sips at your desk. After a while, you won’t even think about it!

Sip, don’t chug

Gulping down a big bottle of water in one sitting definitely helps you meet your daily hydration goals faster, but it may cause bloat and upset stomach. Instead, take small sips all day long – it may actually help you absorb the water better and keep you from that “sloshy stomach” feeling.

Make it fun!

Let’s face it, water can get boring. So liven it up a bit by adding lemon, lime or cucumber slices, or even orange wedges. Muddling the fruit brings out the flavor even more. Flavored sparkling water like Cascade Ice is also a great option for changing things up by adding a bubbly kick of flavor to your daily water intake. There are several different product lines and flavors, so check out our website for more information.
