How to stay hydrated in summer



  1. Bring a bottle of water everywhere you go

During the hot summer days you always need to have some water with you - no matter where you are. Be prepared to always have a small bottle of water in your fridge. If it's a really hot day and you don't have a cold water to take out, take a thermos and put some ice cubes and water in it - the thermos should hold the temperature longer and it is wide so you can put some ice as well.


  1. Avoid any unnecessairy physical activity during the day

Leave all the outdoor activities, exercises, walks and tours for early morning or late evening. Unless it's some kind of an activity in the water...but still, avoid the direct sun between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.

If you really need to go somewhere bring water, dress light and in linen clothes so your skin can breathe and bring a hat – those are the basis that you already know but, here's a tip: you can even bring a wet cold towel in a bag - to refresh you.


  1. Eat the food with high water content

Dehydration is the most common problem in summer so you need to take in water in all kinds of shapes. One of them are fruits rich in water such as watermelons, melons, strawberries, peaches etc, as well as vegetables as cucumber, green salad, tomato, spinach etc.

You can also include a lots of soups, cooked and warm or even better, fresh and cold ones like gaspacho - they are amazing for the summer time.
