It’s essential as we age to make sure we keep hydrated, and in the course of the summer season months when (if we’re fortunate!) it will get hotter if is much more necessary that we drink sufficient.
While the British Climate is conserving us on our toes by swinging randomly between cold and warm only a reminder that when it’s scorching and you might be exercising (and even if you’re not!) it is advisable hold hydrated. You need to drink water earlier than, throughout and after exercises (and even walks). Older age is a danger issue for dehydration and older adults have a lowered thirst response (you won’t realise it is advisable drink!). Even gentle dehydration adversely impacts psychological efficiency, will increase emotions of tiredness and will increase danger of falls. Drinks equivalent to squash and tea depend or you possibly can add slices of lemon/orange/mint/ice to water (not fairly the identical as a Pimms I do agree). My favorite technique is filling a water bottle initially of the day and ensuring it’s empty by night but in addition know some who set a timer to remind themselves to drink water (I’m positive Alexa/Google Dwelling would oblige with reminders as nicely)
Water isn’t just for laundry your palms!
