Grab your resusable water bottle before you leave the house to make sure that you can stay hydrated everyday all day. It is crucial to drink plenty of water because summer heat in Canada and the United States has been reaching an all-time high. Drive Sportswear has taken notice to the rise in tempuratures this summer. We decided to gather information about how to stay hydrated all summer long because of this trend.

How to Beat the Heat:

  1. Lets begin with the obvious… Rememer to always carry a water bottle everwhere you go. Drive Sportswear offers a wide variety of resuable water bottles (as shown in the above image) that can encourage this behaviour. A reusable water bottle in the summer should be insulated to make sure your H2O stays cold longer.
  2. If you find yourself constantly forgetting to drink water everyday perhaps start setting reminders in your phone or calendar. Setting hydration goals – mentally or electronically – is a way to increase water intake daily. Then, once you reach that goal, add to it and increase your intake. 
  3. If water is a difficult beverage for you to continually drink, maybe try including fruit to add some flavour. Start by pouring a handful of fresh frozen berries into your resuable water bottle, or a few slices of lemon or oranges. Get creative, mix in whatever satisfys yout tastebuds!
  4. Consuming water-rich foods is yet another way to absorb water if drinking it is a struggle. Summer fruits such as watermelon, strawberries, canteloupe and pineapple all have a high water content and are a great alternative to water. In addition, vegetibles such as cucumbers, celery and tomatoes all have high-water content. 

Know the signs of dehydration:

Be aware of the signs of dehyration in adults and in children. The symptoms listed below should help keep track of what to look out for.

  • Muscle cramps and muscle fatigue
  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth and dry skin
  • Iritability 
  • Feeling Dizzy or lightheaded
  • Headaches 

These are just a few of the most common symptoms of dehydration.

Keep in mind that in hot and humid weather the human body sweats more. This means that physically you are losing a lot of water through your skin. Therefore, the more you sweat, the more water you should be consuming on a daily basis.
