I thought this would be a good time to remind everyone about the importance of hydration – sounds simple, but it’s easy to forget now that we’re not in 30 degree heat!
An average adult loses 2.5 liters of water per day just through breathing, sweating, and waste removal.This increases with exercise.
Even in the colder weather, we need to be aware of how much water we drink. The colder weather, the drier air, and increased wind make hydration even more important. Naturally, we will be drawn to hot drinks, soup, and even alcoholic drinks to warm ourselves. However, the best is still to drink lots of water – try drinking hot water for a change, perhaps with a wedge of lemon.
