Boy has this month been hot! Could be the hottest month ever in the history of the Earth! So keep hydrated!
In the summer months it is possible that we do not drink enough and dehydration can happen. Especially with kids doing physical activities and people working outside. Keep the water bottle nearby. Here is why:
- Dehydration may not happen right away. It could happen hours or days later.
- Being thirsty is only one symptom. Dry skin, headaches, muscle cramps are also something to be aware of.
- Doesn’t necessarily need to be hot out, could be muggy and if you sweat more, drink more
- Try to drink 8 glasses of water a day, and mix in some electrolytes like sports drinks, dairy, and a few salty snack to help.
This heat is for real. So stay hydrated this summer. And if you do, you may even lose a few pounds too. My name is Tim Thomas, and I am here to help!
