Temperatures are high throughout the nation, and particularly here in our nation’s capitol where it's a steamy 95 degrees. With such warm weather, it is tempting to stay outside and soak in the sun. And while outdoor activities are great for staying healthy, dehydration can be a big problem. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 300 Americans die each year due to heat-related illnesses! So, make sure you remember to hydrate.
And here’s an important fact: the best time to drink fluids is actually before you are thirsty, because by the time you feel thirsty you are already starting to get dehydrated.
