Tips to stay hydrated this Summer

In Summer, as temperatures rise, it is very important to stay hydrated. Did you actually know that the human body is made up of mostly water (60 to 65%)? That’s why water is essential to most bodily functions… 

Drink before you are thirsty

When it’s hot outside, you have to be even more careful. Dehydration is the loss of water and salts from the body. If you don’t replace lost fluids, you will get dehydrated. Don’t wait to be thirsty to take a drink. In fact, when you’re thirsty, you could already be dehydrated. Fortunately, there are simple ways to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Always carry a water bottle, and if you have desk job, always keep one at your desk. If you don’t like water, flavor it! It’s very simple… Infuse water with slices of fresh fruits, enhance with fresh mint leaves, ginger, rosemary, add some ice cubes if you like it fresh and enjoy! For example, you can slice kiwi fruits, watermelon, strawberries with lemon or lime.

Eat more water-rich fruits

Eat more water-rich fruits and vegetables like kiwis, watermelon, strawberries, grapefruit, peaches… They’ll help you stay hydrated. Some fruits, such as kiwifruits, contain over eighty percent water! As the temperatures begin to climb during these summer months, this is also an effective way to help your body absorb sufficient water. Fresh fruit salad, Summer fruit kebabs, fresh fruit soup… There are so many ideas!
