Preventing dehydration

  • Try to avoid the sun in the middle of the day or at noon. Use an umbrella to protect yourself from direct sunlight.

  • Drink water and fresh fruits juices, rich in Vitamin C, at regular intervals on hotter days.

  • Avoid taking alcohol and caffeinated beverages such as coffee and soft drinks as these aggravate the effects of dehydration.

  • When you exercise, be sure that you drink plenty of water before, during, and after.

  • On those warmer days, take plenty of breaks from your daily activities to get in the shade and drink plenty of fluids.
