Stay Hydrated This Summer with These Tips

The most obvious tip is to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Carry a reusable water bottle with you and sip from it frequently, even if you don't feel thirsty.

Drink plenty of water

Many fruits and vegetables have a high water content and can help keep you hydrated, such as watermelon, cucumber, lettuce, and berries.

Eat hydrating food

Alcohol, caffeine, and sugary drinks like soda can dehydrate you, so it's best to limit your consumption of these beverages, especially on hot days.

Avoid dehydrating drink

If you have trouble remembering to drink water, set reminders on your phone or computer to remind you to take sips throughout the day.

Set reminder

If possible, try to stay indoors during the hottest parts of the day, typically between 11 am and 4 pm. This will help you avoid the heat and the need for excess hydration.

Stay indoors during peak heat hour

Wearing loose-fitting, breathable clothing can help regulate your body temperature and prevent excessive sweating, which can lead to dehydration.

Wear lightweight, breathable clothing

If you're engaging in outdoor activities like hiking or biking, take frequent breaks in the shade or indoors to rest and rehydrate.
