Most people are good at keeping cool in summer – but have you been staying hydrated? While drinking lots of water is a good strategy, you might be missing out on retaining and replenishing the vitamins and electrolytes that keep you in top shape.
Saving exercise and sport activities for cooler times in the day, covering up and staying in the shade, and ensuring easy access to water are all great ways to support proper hydration. Eat Right Ontario has even more tips for staying hydrated on their website.
