Stay hydrated

 

A few tips for maintaining ideal hydration:

* Drink water when you feel thirsty.

* Use your urine as a guide. It should be pale yellow/straw-coloured. Too light a colour means you are overhydrated; too dark means you should drink more water.

* How do your lips, inside of your nose, and inside of your mouth feel? If they are dry or sticky, drink more.

* What you drink today hydrates you for tomorrow. In other words, if you think you can slam 32 ounces of water right before a lot of strenuous activity and be properly hydrated, you're wrong. So be sure to drink enough water every day.
