Wellness Wednesday

As the song goes, it's summer time and the livin' is easy.  But it's also hot, so we need to stay hydrated.  Approximately 75 percent of the human body is water, so it's important to keep replenishing the water we lose as we sweat.  Here are a few tips to keep you hydrated, especially when you exercise:

  • Don't wait until you're thirsty to get a drink of water
  • Make sure your urine is light in color
  • For most exercise, drink water (rather than other beverages) before, during, and after
  • Avoid alcohol the day before and day of exercise
  • Fruits and vegetables help keep you hydrated
