The importance of hydration during the summer.

It’s no secret that staying hydrated is important for overall health, but it’s especially important when the weather heats up. When temperatures rise and humidity levels increase, our bodies need more water to stay healthy and perform at their best.


Staying hydrated helps regulate body temperature by allowing us to sweat and cool off as needed. Sweating is an essential part of regulating your body temperature during exercise or in hot weather; without adequate fluids, you won't be able to sweat enough to keep yourself cool. Dehydration can also lead to muscle cramps due to a lack of electrolytes like sodium and potassium which are necessary for proper muscle function.


Hydrating before physical activity is just as important as hydrating after physical activity; if you don't drink enough beforehand then your performance will suffer due the effects dehydration has on energy levels throughout the workout session - this could mean feeling dizzy or lightheaded during intense periods of exertion or simply not being able push yourself further than usual because you're running low on fuel (water). Additionally, drinking plenty of fluids before exercising can help prevent against heat exhaustion which occurs when your core body temperature rises too high from prolonged exposure in hot environments with limited fluid intake - symptoms include nausea/vomiting along with extreme fatigue so it's best avoided!


Finally – although we often think about how much water we should be drinking while working out – what many people forget about is how crucial it also is even outside exercise sessions: Staying well-hydrated throughout the day will ensure that all bodily functions are running smoothly & efficiently including digestion & elimination processes so make sure those glasses remain full!
