Stay Hydrated for Heat Relief

It is extremely warm and humid these past few days in our area and I am seeing signs of you being uncomfortable with questions. Therefore, I have reminder tips for you:

Divide your bodyweight pounds in half, drink that number ounces of water daily. Drink more if you are still thirsty and lost weight. Staying hydrated will help you maintain your healthy weight.

Drink water before you go into a warm environment, drink about every fifteen minutes during the activity and continue sipping water after you are finished.

Squeeze lemon or lime juice into your water for an extra hydration boost.

Eat high water content food like fruits and vegetables.

Limit, if not eliminate, caffeine: chocolate, tea, coffee.

Limit, if not eliminate, alcohol.

Now you will be able to handle the heat better to enjoy your outdoor activities.

Best of health to you and goodbye.
