Maintaining your hydration during summer is very important, as it is very easy to dehydrate if you are not drinking water during any activity whilst working or playing in the sun. Men, women, boys, girls, and even toddlers need to drink water every day to properly maintain hydration levels. For toddlers a litre a day will suffice whereas for adults as much as 2.1ltrs per day for women and 2.6 litres per day for men may be necessary. If you are working or exercising in the heat, not drinking enough water can easily lead to fatigue, nausea or confusion because of moisture loss through the skin. In extreme cases the core temperature of the body can rise above the normal range of 36-38 degrees C putting even more stress on the decision making capability of the brain.
Dry working environments or air travel can also have debilitating effects on your hydration. It is well known that a three hour flight, even on a modern aircraft, can cause an individual to lose up 1.5 litres of water. It is always good practice to hydrate before working or playing in dry environments and during a flight keep the water flowing to avoid feeling jet lagged by dehydration. Drinking tea, coffee or other beverages on a plane will not have the same effect as drinking pure water. Drinking water will always be the easiest way to replace lost fluids as it is more easily absorbed into the blood stream than other beverages are. So for the best results and quickest recovery, make sure that you are re-hydrating with the purest water you can get hold of.
