Hydration Tips To Stay Cool In The Summer Heat

Summer time is upon us and although we all love summer, especially summer holidays we need to stay hydrated all summer long.

Most of us look forward to those long days of summer when we can spend a lot of time outdoors and soak up the sun’s energy. But there are a few important tips you need to keep in mind which require a bit of extra attention from our part to make sure we stay properly hydrated.

Avoid Caffeine

Caffeine sucks the moisture out of you. On hot days, avoid it as much as possible. Drink a bottle of water between each cup of coffee to stay hydrated.

Listen to the weather

If there are heat warnings in your area, listen to them closely. If it is going to be particularly very hot the next day, try and wear light colours and loose fittings to allow the air to flow through the material to help keep your body cool.

Listen to your body

Body awareness is important. If you feel different than you usually do, it might be the best time to take a rest and drink lots of water.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

Since we are not about plastic bottles these days, purchase a reusable water bottle to help you track your water intake each day.

Water is truly the elixir of life. As you experience the fun adventures of summer, remember to drink plenty of water and eat hydrating whole fruits and vegetables. We offer water dispensers to keep you going strong all summer long. Send us an email with your query at sales@drinkingwaters.co.za.
