When it gets warmer we tend to be more active. Running around outside, doing chores, running walking or just enjoying the sunshine.
When we are more active and the temperatures are higher we need to make sure we are getting enough hydration to match that activity level.
Make sure you always have access to fresh water when you are out and being active. Make sure you drink the water too, don't just bring it! :)
One special note for seniors.. It is a fact that when we age our body sends us less signals as reminders. Seniors will tell you often that they don't "feel" thirsty, but are in fact under hydrated.
If you are a senior, just because you don't feel the thirst impulse you still must be sure you are drinking enough water through out your day to stay hydrated. Don't wait for your body to tell you because those signals may not come.
Did you know that water is a nutrient?
Water is defined as an essential nutrient because it is required in amounts that exceed the body's ability to produce it. All biochemical reactions occur in water. It fills the spaces in and between cells and helps form structures of large molecules such as protein and glycogen.
Your body needs water just as much as it needs food!
How much water should you drink?
Below is a nifty explanation from slenderkitchen.com that allows you to tailor your water intake based on your weight and activity level:
Lots of people don't realize the true importance of drinking enough water everyday and how it can impact both your health and your weight loss efforts. According to experts in a recent study, drinking just 2 cups of water, which is smaller than the size of a bottled soda, before meals helped dieters lose an extra five pounds yearly and help you maintain your weight loss. Additionally drinking the right amount of water daily can actually speed up your metabolic rate and help to curb overeating when your body confused hunger and thirst. But how much water is enough? Here is how to calculate how much water you should drink a day for both health and weight loss benefits:
