New to Denver?If you've never been to Denver, you might be unaccustomed to the high altitude. At 5,280 feet above sea level, the Denver air is thinner and dryer, and it will likely take time to adjust. Here are the top 3 ways to take care of yourself in the Mile High City:
Drink Water: The drier air in Denver means you'll need to drink more water than normal.
Prepare for the Weather: The sun is very powerful in Denver. Be sure to bring sunglasses and sunscreen to protect yourself in the harsh sunlight. Also be sure to dress in layers; that powerful sunlight can cause warm days but cold nights after the sun sets.
Eat High Potassium Foods: Replenish electrolytes by consuming high-potassium foods such as broccoli, bananas, avocado, cantaloupe, celery, greens, bran, chocolate, granola, dates, dried fruit, potatoes and tomatoes.
