Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being, but many people do not consume enough fluids each day.
It sounds almost unbelievable, but around 60 percent of the body is made up of water, and around 71 percent of the planet’s surface is covered by water.
Regardless of your activity level, all people should drink water, especially in summer to counteract dehydration in hot or humid weather. Although some complain that they don’t like the taste, the health benefits are plenty. Drinking water helps lower your body temperature and replace the fluid you lose through sweating.
And remember, drink water before you get to the stage of feeling thirsty.
Durban in Summer
Here in Durban in summer we should make an extra effort to drink more water, especially when we are outdoors or spend time in a hot car.
Drinking water helps replenish the fluids lost by excessive sweating. The combination of hot temperatures and dehydration can lead to serious heat-related illnesses.
Water bottles aren’t just for trendy millennials in exercise gear; here in Durban they are an essential part of our wardrobe.
Don’t let your kids go to school without a water bottle. Fill the bottle the night before and put it in the freezer – the frozen bottle will gradually defrost in the morning when you take it out, providing chilled water for longer.
