Hot Weather is here – avoid Dehydration!

Approximately 60 percent of the human body is made up of water. Since our bodies lose fluids through natural processes, like urination and sweating, we must consistently replenish our fluids throughout the day. Maintaining a proper fluid balance in one’s body is vital for keeping up oxygen levels, maintaining electrolyte balance, supporting bone and joint health, aiding in digestion, and more.

Signs of Dehydration!

  • Dry mouth
  • Thirst
  • Darker urine color
  • Headache
  • Poor skin turgor (when you pinch your skin up it takes longer to go back in place)
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Flushed skin
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Rapid Breathing

Take water with you when exercising.  Drink 6-8 eight ounce glasses of water daily.
