Since about 75% of our body is made up of water it is vital that we stay hydrated. The best way to beat dehydration is to prevent it all together. If you work outside or you plan on being outdoors at all on these hot days it is important to pack a large water bottle to bring with you, and start drinking it before you get thirsty. Unless you are an endurance athlete or are performing heavy manual labor, stick to water and avoid heavily sugared sports drinks. Also make sure to wear sunblock. Getting sunburn can cause blistering which will lead to further dehydration (along with possibly leading to skin cancer). Lastly, be sure to take a few breaks throughout the day. These breaks will give your body time to rest and allow you to some time to drink more water. Remember to be safe this summer, drinking water throughout your day!
