The Importance of Proper Hydration

While we love and enjoy each and every summer we have, this one haas been especially great. We’ve had wonderful warm weather and thus, we’ve spent the majority of this season – outside! We’ve travelling far and have taken in local attractions and activities.

Yet, no matter which day and where we are – there is one constant. Water. A friend of mine joked with me recently about how much of a water-pusher I am. Each time the kids ran by me, I was shoving a water bottle in their faces. Can you blame me? The hot sun takes a toll on our bodies, especially such active kids.

We all need to stay properly hydrated. In fact, these are just a few of the many reasons that illustrate the Importance of Proper Hydration:

  • Water is a great pick me-up. During hot or humid days, drinking a cold glass of water may be the perfect way to perk up and re-energize.
  • Summer activities quickly lead to sweating and loss of fluids. Keeping your water intake up can be a critical way to keep your body at it’s best and avoid dehydration. Try to drink at least 8 ounces of water every 20 minutes while staying active.
  • Surprising fact? Drinking water and replenishing your fluids can actually improve your mood. Do you find your family gets a little crankier in the heat? Not a coincidence. Even mild dehydration has been proven negatively impact mood and behaviour.
  • Dehydration has been known to affect your attention span, motor skills and basic memory. Regular drinks can help keep us alert, focused and help us to concentrate for longer periods of time.

Knowing just how important drinking water is, one key aspect is to have a clean source.
