HYDRATION EDUCATIONbenefits-of-drinking-water

 

 

 With humidity and rising temperatures, people are at greater risk to become dehydrated. Young children and older adults are at most risk for dehydration. Here are a few tips to make sure you are drinking enough water everyday:

 

 

 

 

1004HOW MUCH?

 Doctors recommend drinking about 8 or 9 cups of water a day. Still, every body is different. If you are drinking enough so that you rarely feel thirsty and you produce colorless or slightly yellow urine, you are probably drinking enough fluids.

 

WHEN SHOULD I DRINK MORE?

You should consider drinking more water if you sweat due to exercise or hot weather or when you are sick to make up for extra fluid loss.

 

SNEAK IN THE WATER

In order to make sure you drink enough water every day, try: drinking a glass of water with each meal, drinking water before, during and after exercising, and substituting sparkling water for alcoholic drinks at parties.
