One of the most important things you can do to stay healthy in the Miami heat is to ensure you remain hydrated. Whether you are visiting one of the spectacular beaches, sightseeing, or dining along the coast, check out some of the summer hydration tips below: 

Don’t Get Thirsty

Everyone knows that drinking water is important, but did you know that when you start to feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated? It’s a good idea to keep a water bottle handy, so you are able to sip on it throughout the day. If you start to show symptoms of dehydration it’s important for you to consider things such as IV therapy packages or seeking additional medical help. 

Drink Water Before, During, And After Exercise Or Going Outdoors

Remaining hydrated doesn’t necessarily mean you should only drink water while you’re exercising or going outdoors. It is important that you also drink plenty of water before, during, and after exercising or spending longer times outdoors. Doing this makes sure your body is properly hydrated and prepared for heat exposure before taking your first steps outside. Drinking water while out and about helps you to replenish lost fluids during exercise or while you were outside. Drinking it after continues to help your body replenish lost fluids.

Take Regular Breaks 

Even if you don’t feel ready for a break or dehydrates, it’s is best if you try to spend around 10 minutes in the shade every hour. This can help your body recover from extreme heat, especially in Miami. If you are spending the day at the beach, spend a few minutes under an umbrella, awning, or patio. If you’re at a theme park, find a shaded spot such s trees, a shop, or a restaurant. If you have young children with you or someone who is considered vulnerable, you may want to take more regular breaks and avoid the hottest part of the day. 

Effects Of Dehydration

Dehydration is where you lose too much body water. The loss can cause disruption to your metabolic processes which can make it more difficult for your body to digest foods and store calories, this ultimately causes extreme fatigue in the body. Dehydration happens when the amount of water lost is higher than the amount of water taken in. Therefore spending long periods of time is the Miami heat, when walking down Miami Beach or trying to get a tan, make sure you take the steps to remain hydrated.
