Staying Hydrated As The Summer Progresses

June 27, 2019

It is always important to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water, but as the summer progresses your hydration needs to be viewed as a life or death matter. The heat in the summertime can be downright oppressive and if you’re not hydrating your body that can lead to many different health problems including:

  • Fatigue
  • High blood pressure
  • Asthma related issues
  • High cholesterol
  • Slow down joint and cartilage repair
  • Speed up the aging process
  • Headaches/sun stroke

These are not all of the ill effects that can occur from being dehydrated but they do cover a lot of ground.

Whether you are a loved one is aging in place or just being cared for by a home health care agency in Connecticut, staying hydrated is the key to surviving a long hot summer and even being able to thrive.
