When the temperatures start to rise, staying hydrated is important.  Whether you are participating in a triathlon, playing a round of golf, or just soaking the rays at the beach, drinking enough fluids is key to enjoying the summertime fun.

 

To avoid becoming de-hydrated, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

 

Don’t Wait:  If you wait until you are thirsty to intake fluids, chances are you already heading towards de-hydration.  Drinking fluids before, during, and after physical activity in the sun is a good preventative measure.

 

Look For Signs: There are several telltale signs for de-hydration.  Headaches and nausea are common.  Also, if you stop sweating or urinating, your body’s fluid levels are most likely depleted.

 

Mix It Up: While drinking water is almost always the best way to hydrate, it can become tedious.  Try a well-balanced sports drink, iced tea, or even flavored water to break up the water-only routine.

 

Eat Your Veggies & Fruit: Not only does certain vegetables and fruit help to restore vital nutrients, they also contain a high levels of water content which can replenish lost fluids.
