Dr. J here again,
Drinking water is very important on a daily basis. Athletes need even more water every day. This is because physical activity makes the body lose water through sweating and increased breathing. Also, the warmer weather makes it especially important to keep hydrated. Here are some general recommendations for increasing water intake:
- Try to drink one glass of water with each meal.
Exercise and Sports
- Be sure to drink water before, during, and after exercise, practices, and games.
Carry Water With You
- Find your favorite water bottle and carry it with you during the day.
I hope you are staying safe and healthy!
Until next time,
