We still have half of our summer to go, and they’re predicting warmer and dryer weather than we’ve experienced this past June and July. While drinking plenty of water when we’re out in the sun to help stay cool and prevent sun stroke is a good idea, its only one of many.
Water is a constant part of our lives whether we’re aware of it or not. We’re made up of roughly 70% water. So we need to ensure we’re drinking enough every day to keep our body healthy.
