At this time of year, when it’s warm outside the importance of hydration comes to the forefront of the mind. Staying hydrated is an important key to staying healthy and energized but a recent survey stats generated from a study of 1,400 UK residents showed that

  • 75% of us are in a constant state of dehydration
  • 15% of Brits are confused over daily guidelines
  • Two in five people wake up in the night needing a drink
  • 90% of Brits who drink less than 500ml feel less productive at work

While it’s always a good idea to stay hydrated, it’s especially important in the summer when the temperature starts rising. Whether you’re spending your holiday travelling, doing outdoor activities like cycling or walking or just relaxing on the beach, here are some Summer hydration tips to keep you fit and energised.

Top healthy Summer hydration tips

-Exactly how much fluid you need depends on several things, including the weather and how active you are but, as a rough guide, you should aim to have around 1.2 litres (6 – 8 glasses) of fluid daily, according to the Dept. of Health and British Nutrition Foundation.

-It’s better to drink little and often rather than gulping large amounts in one go, which promotes urination and a greater loss of fluid.

-Make a habit of drinking regularly. Have a glass of water first thing in the morning and then schedule drink stops during your day. Aim for 6 – 8 glasses (1.2 l) daily, and more in hot weather or workout days.

-Carry a drink with you everywhere – to the gym, to the office, in the car. It’ll be a constant reminder to drink.
