There are many summer activities that have us outside for extended periods. With warmer temperatures, we should consider the additional water our bodies lose. If you don't replace the water you lose, you will become dehydrated. Children and older adults are especially at risk for becoming dehydrated due to the way their body responds to hot temperatures. It is important for everyone to prevent dehydration by drinking water throughout the day. Do not wait until symptoms appear to start drinking water.
