Simply put, because *staying hydrated is one of the best ways you can support your body and help it cool off. When the heat is extreme, you may sweat more and need to drink more to offset those lost fluids.
You should drink water to counteract dehydration in hot or warm weather, regardless of your activity level. Drinking water helps lower your body temperature and replace the fluid you lose through sweating.
Start hydrating right away. It’s easier to maintain your fluid balance if you start out in a well-hydrated state, so drink water before you exercise, work or spend time outside when it’s hot. Then continue to do so during and after your workday.
For most people, thirst is a good indication that you need more water. Before you become dehydrated, you’ll feel thirsty and your mouth may feel dry or sticky.*
After a while, you may also become lethargic and unable to think clearly. Other signs include reduced urine output and urine that is a deep yellow colour. Your eyes might even look a bit sunken and feel dry.
Even being mildly dehydrated can be a problem, so don’t ignore those early signs. Mild dehydration reduces your ability to think clearly as well as your physical co-ordination.
