How to Stay Hydrated in the Summer Heat

How to Stay Hydrated in the Summer Heat

Summer is finally here, bringing sunshine, pool days, and hopefully, plenty of fun. But with the rising temperatures comes the risk of dehydration. Staying hydrated is crucial for maintaining good health and energy levels, especially during the hot summer months.

Here are 5 easy tips to help you beat the heat and stay hydrated this summer:


1. Find a Water Bottle You Love and take it everywhere!

Let's face it, a boring water bottle isn't very motivating. Invest in a reusable water bottle that you love! Choose one in a fun color, with a cool design, or that keeps your water icy cold. The more you enjoy your water bottle, the more likely you are to sip on it throughout the day.

2. Infuse Your Water:

Plain water can get a little boring, especially when it's hot. Jazz it up with some natural flavours! Add slices of cucumber, lemon, or berries to your water for a refreshing twist. You can even try herbs like mint or basil for a unique and healthy flavour. Wassen also offers a range of delicious flavoured mineral powders to help keep you hydrated whilst offering a host of minerals and vitamins to support your health.

3. Eat Hydrating Foods:

Did you know you can also hydrate through your food? Some fruits and vegetables contain up to 85% water! Munch on watermelon, cucumber, celery, or other fruits and vegetables with high water content to help you stay cool and hydrated from the inside out.

4. Listen to Your Body:

Thirst is actually a sign that you're already slightly dehydrated! Try to drink water consistently throughout the day, even if you don't feel parched. Another way to monitor your hydration is to keep an eye on the color of your urine. Aim for a light yellow colour, similar to lemonade. Darker urine indicates dehydration.

5. Set Hydration Reminders:

Let's be honest, it's easy to get caught up in the summer fun and forget to drink water. There are plenty of hydration apps available to help you track your water intake. If you're not a fan of apps, simply set reminders on your phone throughout the day to nudge you to grab your water bottle.

6. Boost your hydration with electrolytes:

Our bodies rely on a delicate balance of electrolytes and water for optimal functioning. Electrolytes are crucial for water balance in the body because they act like tiny conductors, creating an electrical gradient that controls the movement of water between cells and the bloodstream.

We hope these tips help you beat the heat!
