It’s quite important as we age to ensure we stay hydrated, and during the summer months months when (if we are blessed!) it will get hotter if is even more vital that we drink ample.
Whilst the British Climate is holding us on our toes by swinging randomly amongst sizzling and cold just a reminder that when it is sizzling and you are working out (and even if you are not!) you need to have to maintain hydrated. You must consume h2o just before, through and following exercises (or even walks). Older age is a hazard component for dehydration and older grown ups have a lowered thirst reaction (you may well not realise you require to drink!). Even mild dehydration adversely has an effect on mental performance, will increase feelings of tiredness and will increase possibility of falls. Beverages such as squash and tea count or you can include slices of lemon/orange/mint/ice to drinking water (not fairly the very same as a Pimms I do agree). My favourite technique is filling a drinking water bottle at the start off of the working day and making confident it’s empty by night but also know some who established a timer to remind by themselves to drink water (I am sure Alexa/Google House would oblige with reminders as very well)
Water is not just for washing your fingers!
